La Salle/Off-Campus Sites
La Salle University seeks to meet the educational needs of students whose work and/or family obligations make full-time day attendance impossible. In keeping with this intention, the University has established two off-campus centers: the Bucks County Center in Newtown, Pa., and the Montgomery County Center in Plymouth Meeting, Pa. To further accommodate students’ busy schedules, classes are available Monday through Thursday evenings and on Saturday at both centers. The courses are the same as those offered on Main Campus, and the faculty who teach at the off-campus centers are drawn from the University’s day and evening faculty. In every way, it is a La Salle education, but brought closer to where students live and work.
Both the Bucks County Center and the Montgomery County Center are staffed by a La Salle University staff member, and there is an administrative office where advisement and essential student services are available. Registration, textbook sales, library searches, and academic advising are provided at these offices. The off-campus locations, however, are not intended as a branch campus of La Salle, and, therefore, do not supply the full range of academic support services available at main campus. Students enrolled in courses at the Bucks County Center and the Montgomery County Center have the same rights to facilities on main campus as do all other students, and their participation in the academic life and student activities on main campus is encouraged.
Located at Silver Lake Executive Campus, 33 University Drive in Newtown, PA, approximately one mile from the Newtown-Yardley exit of Interstate 95, the Bucks County Center includes traditional classrooms, seminar rooms, a psychological assessment lab, nursing labs, computer classrooms and labs, executive training and professional development facilities, a student lounge, and a resource center that houses library materials and computer work stations. This state-of-the-art facility offers an undergraduate degree-completion program in Organizational Leadership during the day. The R.N.-BSN and graduate programs are available at the Bucks County Center during the evening. The Achieve Program, our undergraduate part-time evening and weekend nursing program that leads to a BSN, is offered at the Bucks County Center.
The Montgomery County Center is located at Metroplex Corporate Center on Chemical Road in Plymouth Meeting, Pa, approximately one-half mile from the Germantown Pike East/Plymouth Meeting Exit 19 of Interstate 476. The facility includes traditional classrooms, seminar rooms, computer classrooms and labs, executive training and professional development facilities, a student lounge, and a resource center that houses library materials and computer work stations. Graduate programs, an accelerated BSW program, along with certificate programs are offered at the Montgomery County Center.
The degree-completion programs provide transfer options for students at local community colleges who want to go on to earn a bachelor’s degree at La Salle.
