How does my transfer coursework apply to my degree?
You must provide transcripts from prior colleges as part of your application to SNL. Initially, the DePaul registrar evaluates your prior courses and applies them to SNL degree requirements. Any classes not assigned are reviewed by your advisor after completing LL250 Foundations of Adult Learning.
