The program, described at www.snl.depaul.edu/current/chronic.asp, is part of DePaul’s nontraditional “School for New Learning.” The program, open to students worldwide, offers individuals dealing with physical difficulties the flexibility of:
- Faculty, advisors, and career counselors familiar with the challenges they face.
- No limit on time required to complete degrees, and no minimum course load per quarter.
- Ability to try any mix of on-campus or remote participation – and the opportunity to complete the entire program remotely, from anywhere in the world. “Online courses are archived, so students, with an instructor’s agreement, can continue coursework beyond the end of a quarter.”
- Privacy regarding to their illness vis-à-vis all but their advisor.
- An experienced-student advice and support “buddy” system.
- Some access to scholarship opportunities.
