Credit for Courses Taken at Other Institutions
Regularly enrolled La Salle students who are in good standing may be approved to take courses at other institutions, subject to college, department, or school restrictions.
- Prior to having 60 credits on one's La Salle transcript, students are permitted to take courses at a two- or four-year school that bring their credit total to 60 credits.
- After attaining 60 credits on their La Salle transcript, students are permitted to take a maximum of 12 transfer credits, but only at a four-year school.
- Major courses may not be taken at other institutions.
- Credit is transferred only for grades of “C” (2.0) or better; however, the letter grade is not included in the computation of a student’s academic index at La Salle.
- Courses taken at La Salle for which a student received a grade may not be repeated elsewhere; however, a course from which a student withdrew and thus received a “W” grade may be repeated elsewhere.
- Students must obtain written permission from the Dean’s Office of the student’s School two weeks prior to the start of the semester.
- Permission for credit for study abroad programs, other than those sponsored by La Salle University, must be obtained in advance from the dean’s office of the student’s School.
It is the responsibility of the student to have an official transcript of credit for approved off-campus courses sent to the dean’s office for inclusion in the student’s record.
The transfer credit requirement and residency requirement are repeated here from other sections of this bulletin because of their impact on courses taken at other institutions.
Transfer Credit requirement
- A total of 70 credits is the maximum number that can be transferred to La Salle from other institutions.
- Students are required to take their last 30 credits at La Salle.
