Health Care Compliance Certificate, Law (JD)

Menu

​To earn a Health Care Compliance Certificate, a student must complete the 86 credit hours required for the Juris Doctor and must satisfy all JD requirements. Within the coursework required for the JD degree, a student must complete 15 credit hours from the listed health law courses, including two required courses and at least three electives.

An applicant must earn a minimum GPA of 3.00 in the Certificate courses. If a student takes more than 15 hours of courses from the approved list, all grades earned in those courses will be factored into the minimum 3.00 GPA requirement for the Certificate.

Previously taught courses, courses offered in other DePaul Colleges, and new courses and seminars that may be added to the curriculum may qualify for the Certificate with approval.

A student may apply for only one Certificate. 

To be certified to sit for the CCB compliance exams, students must earn 15 credit hours from the health care compliance courses listed below and meet all other JD, LLM or MJ degree requirements. A minimum GPA of 3.00 at graduation is required by the CCB.
