Student Accessibility Services

DePauw University strives to maximize student potential by providing reasonable accommodations that ensure equal access to both the campus living and academic environments.

Emergency Loans

Short-term emergency loans can be provided to full-time DePauw students. The loans are for emergencies only and are interest free if paid off by the end of the semester in which the loan is granted. Students who need an emergency loan should contact the Vice President for Student Affairs at (765) 658-4199 or at studentaffairs@depauw.edu to schedule an appointment with the vice president or his designee.

Notices to faculty members

If you must be away from campus due to a family or personal emergency, our staff can notify your faculty members. Some faculty prefer that students work through the Office of Student Affairs to ensure that students are getting the support they need. 

Recommendations to professional schools or graduate school - Dean/College Certificate Forms

Many post-graduation professional programs require a Dean of Students' evaluation form to be completed. If you have such a form to be completed, drop off or mail the form to the Office at 408 S. Locust Street, Union Building Suite 210, Greencastle, IN 46135. Staff in the office will complete the form and notify you via e-mail when the form has been faxed or mailed.

If you are a current student or graduate student applying to a graduate or professional program, and have a Dean’s Certification or Dean’s Report form that needs to be completed by a College Official, please email the Student Affairs Office at studentaffairs@depauw.edu for assistance.

Note: You must contact us and supply any required forms at least two weeks prior to any stated deadline to allow time for processing your request.

Please call 765-658-4270 if you have any questions.

Restorative Justice

Staff help refer students to DePauw's Restorative Justice Program for assistance in working through conflict.
