Admission Requirements

The Admission Committee of the Human Capital Development Program is concerned with each applicant's interest, aptitude, and potential for achievement in graduate studies. Program applications are reviewed on a "rolling" basis. Students may enter the program in the fall, spring, or summer. All candidates must have completed a four-year undergraduate degree or its equivalent from an accredited institution of higher learning to qualify for admission.

Application Procedures and Deadlines

Although there are no formal application deadlines, we recommend that all information be received in the Graduate Admission Office by August 15 for fall admission, December 15 for spring admission, and April 15 for summer admission. International applicants should consider having their applications filed two months prior to the dates listed above.

All applicants must submit the following items directly to the Graduate Admission Office:

  • A completed application form
  • Official transcript of all university-level work attempted or completed
  • A baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution of higher education is required.
  • A current résumé
  • A 500- word essay stating why he/she is interested in the program and what his/her goals are related to this program
  • Two letters of recommendation from professional references

All documents should be submitted to the following:

Selection Criteria

Because each applicant's background and profile is unique, the Admission Committee does not establish specific quantitative minimum requirements for admission.

La Salle University does not discriminate against any applicant because of race, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, veteran status, or marital status. Admission is based solely upon an applicant's qualifications.

Transfer Credit

An applicant may request the transfer of graduate credit(s) earned at another institution. Each request will be evaluated on its own merits. Grades accepted for transfer must be "B" or better. A maximum of six credits on the graduate level (600-level) will be accepted for transfer purposes.
