La Salle’s graduate programs are geared toward the adult learner. Most courses are offered, depending on the program, in the late afternoon, evening, and Saturday mornings. The exceptions to this are: Psy.D. in Clinical Psychology, Speech-Language Pathology, Full-time and One-Year MBA, and the One-Year Professional and Business Communication program. Those programs offer classes during the day.
Possibly. There are programs that do require a test such as the GRE, MAT, or GMAT, and others that do not need it. Some programs have standardized test waivers. However, each graduate program has their own specific set of admission requirements. You can view a program’s admission requirements on its Web site.
La Salle has rolling admissions for most of its graduate programs. Students can apply and be admitted for the Fall (late August), Spring (January) and Summer (May) semesters. It is recommended that you apply for admission no later than one month prior to the semester you wish to begin. In certain cases applications may be accepted up to the beginning of the semester.
However, there are specific deadlines for the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP), One-Year MBA, Doctor of Clinical Psychology (Psy.D.) Doctor of Theology (Th.D.), and Speech-Language-Hearing Science programs. Please check the individual program web sites for the proper deadlines.
International students should apply for admission no later than two months prior to the beginning of the semester in which they wish to begin.
Our Graduate Directors meet individually with prospective students to discuss their interest and answer their questions about attending La Salle University. You can also speak with a Graduate Admission Counselor to learn about the application process and requirements. Admission Counselors can also answer your general program questions.

We also host Open Houses and Virtual Information Sessions periodically throughout the year. Click to view the currently-scheduled Open Houses and Virtual Information Sessions.
Currently, the Nonprofit Leadership, Economic Crime Forensics, Human Capital Development, Computer Information Science, Information Technology Leadership, and Instructional Technology Management programs are 100 percent online. Other graduate programs offer some hybrid courses, which blend face-to-face and online learning. We also provide the convenience of locations throughout the greater Philadelphia region with class times convenient to adults.
