How To Apply

La Salle University is now Test-Free

As part of a pilot program, La Salle will no longer consider standardized tests for admission or merit scholarships. We will pilot this program for applicants for Fall 2023, 2024, and 2025.

It is clear to us that the best predictor of success in the La Salle classroom is each candidate’s high school curriculum and grades. These factors will also drive our academic scholarship decisions.

Elements of a successful application

The heart of the review for admission is the demonstrated academic preparation for the applicant’s program of study. The courses taken and grades earned are most important. At a minimum, students are expected to follow a college preparatory curriculum. The opportunity to take honors, AP, IB, and other advanced classes does enhance our view of the depth of preparation. Students interested in Nursing and other STEM programs are expected to have a strong record in math and science courses.

The personal characteristics we learn about through essays, recommendations, and the activities profile help to shape our overall understanding of each candidate’s high school career and life experiences, and fit to La Salle.
