To be accepted for admission to the program, a candidate must:
- Complete the Application for Admission which may be obtained at http://www.lasalle.edu/grad/ accompanied by the stipulated application fee payable to La Salle University. The application fee is waived for applications submitted online.
- Provide evidence of successful academic achievement in the completion of a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education with an appropriate major. A minimum undergraduate GPA of 3.0 will normally be required.
- Provide official transcripts from all undergraduate and graduate colleges and universities he/she has attended. For studies completed outside the United States, La Salle University requires that you send your transcripts/marksheets to the World Education Service (www.wes.org) or similar credential evaluation service for a course-by-course evaluation. The agency should then directly send the evaluation to the Admission office. A third-party evaluation of your transcript/marksheets is required to process the application. La Salle reserves the right to determine if the third-party agency meets our criteria.
- Provide a professional resume addressing one’s educational and professional background.
- Provide two letters of recommendation from professors or supervisors who can address the candidate’s ability and motivation for enrolling in the program.
- Attend an interview with member(s) of the Admission Committee. These are typically telephone interviews.
- Provide evidence of an appropriate background in computer science or a related discipline, or other equivalent training. On the basis of admission credentials, students may be required to complete some foundation courses.
The application package is viewed as a whole, and the prevailing criterion is the applicant’s capacity for completing the program successfully.
The University’s Nondiscrimination Policy is stated in the General Reference section of this catalog. Admission is based solely on an applicant’s qualifications.
This program is offered in an online format. The curriculum does not meet the requirements for applicants who need to obtain student visas in the United States.
A maximum of six hours of transfer credit may be granted for graduate work at another institution. The student must supply a course description and syllabus in order to facilitate the transfer of credit. After matriculation at La Salle, students must have a course pre-approved by the director (in conjunction with the appropriate faculty member(s)) for it to be considered for transfer purposes.
