Academic Support Programs & Services

We meet students where they are, serving as a partner in your educational journey. You’ll find support from across the campus community as you make the transition to college studies, master a tough subject, pursue a new career path, and whatever else it is you need along the way.

A One-Stop Resource

Many of our academic support programs are housed under the Center for Academic Achievement in Lawrence Hall. We have tutoring, academic coaching appointments, and many other ways to help — stop by and see what’s here for you!

There’s an overall feeling that everyone at La Salle truly cares about you, and I found that to be true from my first anatomy class to my last nursing class. Every professor cares about my success.

Special Pre-College Support Program

Partially funded by the Pennsylvania Act 101, the Academic Discovery Program provides free support services for students whose records indicate that they could benefit from extra academic assistance and who also meet certain criteria of financial need. Participants take a free 6-week summer program before courses begin, where they’ll get one-on-one support, develop good study habits, establish career goals, and prepare to compete successfully in an academic setting.
