Advisement and Registration
Students have opportunities to receive academic advising in several different ways with either their program’s faculty director and/or their program’s academic adviser.
Advising for most programs can take place through personal appointments at either our Main Campus in Philadelphia, the Bucks County Center in Newtown, or at the new Montgomery County Center in Plymouth Meeting. It can also be provided through telephone advising appointments or via e-mail. New students are strongly encouraged to meet with their faculty director and/or academic adviser prior to registering for their first term at the University. For future terms, if students are knowledgeable enough about program requirements, transfer credit issues, scheduling of classes, etc., they can proceed to register themselves without direct academic advising each term. It is up to each individual student to determine how much and how frequently advising will take place. Students are responsible for knowing and meeting all program requirements and the College’s and University’s policies and procedures.
Current students are encouraged to use the University’s online registration system, LUWIS (La Salle University Web Information System), accessible by logging into mylasalle. Prior to the start of registration each term, students will be mailed information relative to their particular programs, along with their Adviser Pin number. This is a secure number that allows students to enter the registration component of LUWIS. By using LUWIS to register, students immediately secure seats in the classes of their choosing and can print out their course schedules immediately. Students may also use LUWIS to check their account balances, view final grades, change mailing addresses, etc. New students cannot use LUWIS to process their first semester’s registration but can use it in subsequent terms.
Students may also register by completing and returning the pre-registration form that is included with their registration information. This process will take more time since registration must be manually processed by the Registrar’s Office and students will not receive course schedules until tuition invoices are mailed out. Students are encouraged to register as early as possible each term to ensure getting their first choice of courses.
Changes of Roster
Rosters may be changed, either by dropping and/or adding courses, up until the last day of the first week of the Fall and Spring semesters for courses that meet during regular terms. Accelerated courses and summer session courses follow a different schedule for dropping and adding. Refer to the Undergraduate Bulletin for specific information.
Evening Students Taking Day Courses
Students in this situation are encouraged to contact their academic adviser and pre-register as early as possible in the process. Day classes often fill up quickly, and evening students who typically register late in the cycle may find these classes closed.
