LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR PROFESSIONAL SEQUENCING PROGRAM
We recognize and value the experience adults bring with them into a degree program. Earning up to 30 credits for experiential learning (learning gained from outside of the classroom) is one of the many ways students in the School of New Resources can earn college credits.
College Level Examination Program (CLEP), designed by the Educational Testing Service, and College Proficiency Examination (CPE), designed by the New York State Board of Regents, are examinations designed to assess learning in areas where formal instruction has not been received. The policy at the School of New Resources is to accept up to 30 credits for examinations taken with passing scores but no more than 15 credits in the CLEP General Examinations. Guidelines for transfer credit apply.
Credits are also awarded for the Dante Subject Standardized Test based on credit recommendation from ACE (American Council on Education). Students should see a member of the Instructional Staff for more information.
Our classes are offered in a seminar format, where discussions are a key component. This means you benefit from relaxed, conversational classrooms.
In a national study, the School of New Resources was named a “best practice” institution by the Council for the Adult and Experiential Learner.
SNR graduates have gone on to pursue advanced degrees from The College of New Rochelle Graduate School, as well as prestigious institutions such as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Fordham, Rutgers, and Princeton. Many enjoy successful careers in education, law, business, psychology, art, social services, and the ministry.
