The academic programs within the College of Education have set forth these dispositions as educational and professional expectations for all students.

The following dispositions apply to Early Childhood Education, Elementary Education, Exercise Science, Middle Grades, Physical Education, Secondary Education, and World Language Education majors only:
The following dispositions apply to Special Education majors only:

The field experiences must include a variety of settings, multicultural experiences, and thirty hours upon completion of coursework.

Internship is the culminating clinical experience in the student's program. All students must meet the following requirements before applying for internship:
The awarding of a degree is not automatic. You must submit an application to be considered for the degree. DePaul awards and posts degrees at the end of each regular academic term (autumn, winter, spring, summer).
It is your responsibility to initiate the degree conferral application process by submitting an online application. Submitting an application means you intend to finish your degree requirements by the end of the term for which you have applied.
Undergraduate students must be approved for internship and complete internship and capstone to be cleared for the degree. Student must submit graduation application for the quarter that matches the quarter in which they complete their internship.
After you submit the application, you cannot register for any term after the one selected in the application.
To apply for degree conferral, log on to Campus Connection. Select STUDENT CENTER, then MY ACADEMICS. On screen instructions will take you through the application process.
Provided that all requirements and financial obligations are met, degrees are posted 30 days after the official end of the term. Official dates are listed on the Academic Calendar.
DePaul holds one commencement ceremony each year in June. If you intend to participate, you must first apply for degree conferral for the current academic year and then submit a cap and gown order. Honors announced at the ceremony for undergraduates are based on winter quarter GPAs because a final GPA is not available at the time of the ceremony. Eligibility for the June Commencement ceremony is limited to individuals that complete the entirety of their program (including student teaching) within the same academic year (prior to the ceremony).
Additional information about degree conferral and graduation can be found on the College of Education website at: http://education.depaul.edu/.
Consult with Physical Education faculty members and the office of student teaching for procedures for the internship. The internship experience is done at the very end of the program and requires all coursework for the major and liberal studies to be completed.
Registration in internship requires completion of all requirements and procedures above. All students also take PE 387, Capstone Seminar with the internship (listed in the Liberal Studies section).
