​A posthumous degree may be awarded to degree-seeking candidates who were actively enrolled and in good academic standing.  Undergraduate students must have earned at least 132 credit hours; graduate and professional students must have completed at least 75% of the curriculum required for their degree.

For all other cases, the Dean may request a Certificate of Accomplishment be awarded to honor the student's progress toward the degree and accomplishments as a member in good standing of the DePaul community.
