Why Choose the School of New Resources?

The School of New Resources (SNR) at The College of New Rochelle provides an attainable path to an undergraduate degree for a diverse population of adult learners.

SNR — which was recently named a best practice institution in a national study by the Council for Adult and Experiential Learning — may be the right school for you. Here are a few reasons why.

  • Unique six-credit courses – Intensive six-credit courses help our students complete their degree sooner and allow students to pursue a full-time course load while attending classes just two days per week.
  • Customized degree plan – Students work with their academic advisors to devise a personal degree plan that takes their current responsibilities into account, and have the opportunity to gain credits based on past experience through our Prior Learning Portfolio Process. The result? Realistic, attainable goals.
  • Liberal arts studies – Liberal arts students gain invaluable critical thinking, writing, and oral communications skills, developing a lifelong love of learning and the ability to quickly adjust and adapt in the professional world.
  • Genuine community – The exceptional faculty members at SNR are dedicated, approachable, and committed to forging real bonds with their students. Our seminar-style classes, which average just 18 students, are based on discussion and participation. SNR is characterized by active intellectual exchange and a sense of community that other adult-oriented programs lack.
  • Convenient locations – By maintaining five campuses, including the College's main campus in Westchester County and four locations in the boroughs of New York City, we allow students to pursue their studies within their own communities.
