If you take a course for credit, you will be required to complete the project due after the end of class on July 22, and you may submit a request for Act 48 credits. The final project must be submitted to the course instructor by July 29 via e-mail and/or surface mail.

Registration and Payment of Fees
Registration for courses and housing, if desired, must be made in advance. You may register online by completing the La Salle University Graduate AP Program Application and choosing your course at the end of the application.
By using the online Graduate Program Application the La Salle University Office of Student Accounts Receivable will bill you directly once your registration has been received. (Note: Billing for summer session courses begins in June.) They will continue to bill you until payment has been made. If payment is not made by the time classes begin, you will be notified of your options in this regard.
Payment of tuition and/or housing fees can be made with check or purchase order sent via U.S. mail to the address listed on the registration form. La Salle University only accepts credit card payments via the Web (www.lasalle.edu/bursar). Please note that there is an additional fee for this service. You will need your seven-digit La Salle ID number assigned by the University in order to complete your transaction. This number will be sent to you in the mail.
Because registration for all courses must be limited, students will be accepted on a “first come, first served” basis. All courses will run concurrently; consequently, you may register for only one course.
All cancellations must be received prior to July 1, 2016, or the applicant will be held responsible for tuition and fees. The University reserves the right to cancel any course due to insufficient enrollment or for any other reason.
