SNL  AP Competence Articulation

The following list correlates each AP exam with specific SNL competences in the Liberal and Lifelong Learning Areas. These are the only competences and exams students may submit in these areas. Exams not listed may not be used.

Students may submit an exam, whether listed or not, for a Focus Area competence. However, such an exam must be relevant to the focus area and students must get approval from their Academic Committee.

Each exam may be submitted for only one competence.

These exams will be processed in the same manner as pre-approved transfer coursework, using SNL's pre-approved transfer course log sheets.

Students transferring from SNL to another college at DePaul must abide by the AP credit awards required by the college to which they are transferring.

If you have questions, please consult the School for New Learning website or call them at (312) 362-6221.
