- 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.

The University’s Nondiscrimination Policy is stated in the General Reference section of this catalog. Because oral and written communication is an integral part of many courses, students must communicate clearly in English. Since this program is offered in an online format, it does not meet the requirement for a U.S. student visa.
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.
