About the School for New Learning

Founded 40 years ago, the School for New Learning at DePaul University is a pioneer in serving the needs of adult students. SNL offers undergraduate and graduate degree programs that are customized to your interests and intended career path.  At SNL, adult students can meet some of their degree requirements by demonstrating skills and knowledge they have already mastered through work and life experiences, including previous college course work, career achievements and certificate programs, such as HRCI’s PHR, SPHR and GPHR and SHRM’s SHRM-CP and SHRM-SCP. Classes are offered in the evenings and on weekends on DePaul’s Loop, O’Hare, Naperville and Oak Forest campuses as well as online.
