For Counselors & Educators

College Advising Counselors: Help your students discover their Gold Within at DePauw University.

DePauw’s bold Gold school color stands out from the rest – as do our graduates – and reflects our commitment to the Gold Standard for academic excellence. That means close relationships with professors. Small classes where students are an active and valued participant. Connections with prominent alumni. Top-notch co-curricular and professional experiences. Championship sports. And the highest level of personal attention, for which small, intimate universities like DePauw are known.

We know that next to a student's family, counselors, teachers and friends are a huge source for information about college life and best college fit. We're always here to help answer questions as they arise and we can't wait to meet you in person.

We are open for campus visits and would be happy to host your group or individual students on campus. Take a look at our upcoming visit opportunities.

Do you have a student who has visited campus but still wants to connect virtually with faculty, staff and/or current students? Let us help arrange a zoom meeting.

Test-Optional Policy 

The submission of test scores from the SAT or ACT are optional at DePauw University. As a University with a mission focused on diversity, inclusion and access, DePauw engages in a holistic review of applicants. The test-optional alternative allows us to consider student strengths that may be demonstrated in areas other than ACT or SAT scores. Learn more about our test-optional policy here
