What do I need to Apply?

La Salle University encourages applicants to apply to the University via our Early Explorer Plan. Early Explorer is very similar to a non-binding, Early Action Application Plan. Early Explorer Applicants who complete their application either on or before November 1, 2017 will be notified about acceptance and partial tuition scholarship (if eligible) by late November 2017. After November 1, La Salle University admission and scholarship decisions will be made on a rolling basis.

La Salle University recognizes that every student is unique.  The University is committed to reviewing each application individually.  La Salle seeks students who are academically motivated, intellectually curious, and socially active with a strong desire to serve others. 

All La Salle Fall 2018 full-time, undergraduate applicants are given the option to choose either the Traditional or Test-Flexible Application Review as the path that best reflects a student’s abilities, skills, life experiences, and potential for success.  Students who choose the Test-Flexible Application Review are not required to submit their standardized test scores.
