Mission

Adult, Veteran and Commuter Student Affairs assists these populations in their transition to college and supports them in achieving their educational goals. The office collaborates with key university and external partners​ to provide services, resources and programs that address the specific needs of this student population. The office also works to create an environment that encourages and nurtures​ student engagement in campus life.​

​Our Commitment

Adult, Veteran and Commuter Student Affairs​ is committed to serving the specialized needs of our students. We define "adult students" as undergraduate students who are 24 years of age or older, as well as all veteran, graduate and professional students.  

​While our primary focus is to advocate on behalf of adult, veteran or commuter students, we also provide opportunities for meaningful participation in the university community. Our programs and services for these ​stud​ents include community building events, academic support, social networking and a strong network of partners for service referrals.

​Community Building

From welcoming new students to congratulating new graduates, Adult, Veteran and Commuter Student Affairs​ celebrates our students and provides opportunities for meaningful connections for our entire population and various sub-groups, like graduate students ​or students with children. Events and programs are offered regularly to enhance networking opportunities and build a strong student community at DePaul.​

​Academic Support

In addition to the Adult Student Center, students can find other academic support and resources through our workshops, resource referrals, financial assistance and other academic programs.

Learn about scholarships, participate in skill-building workshops or connect with learning resources through Adult Student s​ervices.

​Advocacy

A network of resources is available for students with questions or needs related to their academic success. Visit the Adult Student Center’s resource library, participate in our annual resource fair or visit with a staff member to connect with other university offices, services and resources.

Student Success

Adult, Veteran and Commuter Student Affairs executes a number of intentional programs and services to positively impact retention and success of these populations.  This includes mid-term check-ins for Veterans, Adult Student Success Map in Blue Star, special stop-out returning student scholarships and more.
