Frequently Asked Questions
Meeting the Needs of Today’s Men and Women
Does La Salle University offer graduate programs during the daytime?
La Salle’s graduate programs are geared toward the adult learner. Most courses are offered, depending on the program, in the late afternoon, evening and Saturday mornings. The exceptions to this are the Psy.D., Full-Time and One-Year MBA, and Professional and Business Communications that offer daytime classes.
Can I be admitted conditionally to a graduate program? Do I have to take a standardized test to be admitted to a graduate program?
Each program has its own specific set of admission requirements. To view the admission requirements for the program(s) you are interested in, click on one of the graduate program links on the top or side of this web page.
When can I apply for admission to a program?
For most graduate programs at La Salle students can apply and be admitted for the Fall (September), Spring (January) and Summer (May) semesters. It is recommended that you apply for admission no later than one month prior to the semester you wish to begin. In certain cases applications may be accepted up to the beginning of the semester. However, there are specific deadlines for the Doctor of Nursing Practice, One-Year MBA, Psy.D., Th.D., and Speech-Language-Hearing Science programs. Please check with the individual web pages for the proper deadlines. International students should apply for admission no later than two months prior to the beginning of the semester in which they wish to begin.
