Admission Requirements


To qualify for admission, candidates must meet the following general procedural requirements and have earned a diploma from an accredited high school, or have been granted a general equivalency diploma (GED) from a state department of education.

Qualified applicants desiring to pursue their education at La Salle in an Undergraduate Adult program are welcome in evening, online and part time programs. Admission decisions are based on past scholastic record, present scholarship, aptitude, experience, potential and recommendations. Students interested in transferring into a bachelor’s degree program should have a minimum GPA of 2.25 with a GPA of 2.50 preferred. Certain programs may require other requirements.

All applicants, except those who already hold a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, may be given verbal and mathematical placement examinations. The results of these examinations enable the Admission Committee to evaluate the applicant’s verbal and mathematical aptitudes.

Students can apply for admission to most Undergraduate Adult programs beginning in the fall, spring, or summer semester. Once admitted, students are classified according to the program of study for which they have applied (i.e., as a candidate for the Bachelor of Arts, or Bachelor of Science).  An applicant may also be admitted as a special or non- matriculated student to take courses without reference to degree requirements,

La Salle does reserve the right to refuse admission or require the withdrawal of any student whose presence would conflict with the idea of the University or with the observance of its regulations.
