Founded in 1972 as the School for New Learning, DePaul University's School for Continuing and Professional Studies launched on July 1, 2019 after a large-scale study of the adult learner landscape. Building upon SNL’s 45-year history, SCPS is now organized to expand its mission and scope of operations to be more responsive to new markets. SCPS builds on DePaul’s longstanding commitment to providing adult learners access to higher education through curricular structures that serve lifelong learning needs.
