Global Enhancement Program (GEP)

DePaul’s Global Enhancement Program (GEP) creates the necessary infrastructure and support services to allow cohorts of students from international partner institutions to come to DePaul for a short period of time—from a few weeks or a quarter to a whole year—as tuition paying, non-degree seeking students.

The mission behind GEP is to:

  • Increase the diversity of our international student population.
  • Contribute to the further internationalization of DePaul’s campuses.
  • Offer opportunities for meaningful and transformative intercultural experiences to students who may never take advantage of study abroad programs.
  • Increase faculty and staff exposure to international students.
