Depor, who were relegated from the top flight last term after finishing second bottom, had seen their promotion drive stumble in recent weeks after taking just three points from their previous five games.
However, the 2000 Primera Division champions finally got over the line in the penultimate round of the season after downing Jaen at the Riazor thanks to a first-half goal from veteran defender Carlos Marchena.
The victory leaves Depor second in the Segunda Division standings, a point behind already-promoted Eibar and six clear of Barcelona B in third place.
