Independent Learning Pursuits

Independent Learning Pursuits (ILPs) are opportunities for SNL students to pursue competency for prior college-level learning experiences obtained through professional development in the workplace, courses and workshops in non-accredited programs and independent learning—whether pursued at home, workplace or school. The learning experience may have been accomplished prior to or during studies at SNL.

Competency via an ILP is demonstrated by submission of the ILP Submission Form, plus an artifact, document or other evidence that addresses the criteria of the competency sought. Alternatively, creative visual arts projects can be demonstrated by participation in ArtShare.

Certain credit-recommended or independently-accredited courses and programs may qualify as an Expedited ILP, which requires the Expedited ILP Submission Form, plus the transcript, certification, grade report or other documentary evidence of successful completion of the course or program. See ILP Instructions for more guidance about how to complete the form and ILP Frequently Asked Questions.

After your mentor approves the ILP, a $150 fee will be charged upon ILP submission.
