Progression through the Program
La Salle’s M.S. in Instructional Technology Management (ITM) program follows the traditional academic calendar at La Salle. The typical length of the semester is 15 weeks. A full-time graduate student carries a minimum of 6 semester credit hours. Some courses may require more hours per week in some areas of instruction. All courses are three credits, online courses that will meet both synchronously (optional) and asynchronously. Students will be required to participate in chat sessions and/or discussion boards, which will take the place of classroom meetings and may be frequented by students depending on their personal schedules. The fall and spring terms are 15 weeks, and the summer sessions are 12 weeks.
In order to earn the degree, students must successfully complete all 12 ITM courses for a total of 36 credits in the program. Once an applicant is accepted into the program and registers for his or her first course, a maximum of seven years will be allowed for the successful completion of the program. Only in extreme circumstances will a leave of absence be granted. When a leave of absence is granted, it will not exceed a maximum of one year, and the period of leave granted will not count toward the maximum seven years permitted to complete the program. All students must complete the program with a minimum GPA of 3.0 or above.
