We understand that adult students lead busy lives. The accelerated format enables students to achieve their educational goals quickly without sacrificing quality. The program includes a two-year cycle of accelerated courses, offered in a "blended" format that combines the latest techniques in online learning with the unrivaled excellence of the La Salle classroom tradition. To accommodate adult student's busy schedules, classes meet four hours, one night a week for seven weeks in the evenings. Saturday courses meet four hours on three Saturdays during a fifteen-week term.
A learning community that includes 15 to 20 students enrolled in a set of required major courses, which are part of a degree completion program. A cohort group acts as a learning community with a set of common academic experiences leading to integrated learning, team building, a strong bond among students and faculty, and an enhanced overall experience.
Once a cohort begins, La Salle guarantees to run every course in the 2+2 sequence. Cohort students do not have to worry about a course being cancelled because of low registration.
2 + 2 Program

There is a special tuition rate for students in the program. Courses meet four days per week, Monday through Thursday mornings. There are no afternoon or Friday classes. The program is offered in a cohort format. Students complete the program as a group. Once a cohort begins, La Salle guarantees to run every course in the 2 + 2 sequence.
