What will I learn?

The Undergraduate GPP combines needed English language study with academic skills and coursework while also providing cultural support during the first year in the U.S. and in a university classroom. GPP students who successfully complete their Pathway program can progress to undergraduate studies in the area of Computing and Digital Media.

Pathway Program Options

  • Standard 3-Quarter Pathway
  • Extended 4-Quarter Pathway
  • Extended Plus 5-Quarter Pathway

Each quarter you will take a combination of DePaul academic courses (credited) and English courses (non-credit). Course options are dependent upon the required Pathway. Once you have reached the required English level you can exit to DePaul University.

In your final quarter of the GPP, you will be introduced to your University Academic Advisor for your major. Your advisor will help you plan the rest of your degree program beyond the GPP. A full list of programs offered for direct entry is available here.
