Welcome and Introduction:
The La Salle University/Regional Training Center Master of Education (La Salle/RTC M.Ed.) program was developed to support current teachers as master educators in the classroom and beyond. The La Salle/RTC graduate program in education gives teachers the skills to stimulate and challenge their students to become more actively involved in the learning process, to think critically and problem-solve, to become more creative, to communicate more effectively, and to collaborate as they learn in the 21st-century classroom.
Yes, students matriculated into the master’s program are eligible for financial aid through La Salle University. Information regarding required forms and FAFSA can be found at La Salle’s Financial Aid Web site.
The La Salle/RTC program allows for a maximum of six transfer graduate credits from other institutions upon review of submitted transcripts. This limit also applies to students taking RTC coursework as non-matriculated students and to Gratz transfers after June 30, 2017.
It is anticipated that students transferring to the La Salle/RTC master’s program have experience completing the graduate coursework and have a pace and strategy for degree completion planned. It is recommended that you take no more than 9 credits in the fall and 12 credits in each of the spring and summer semesters. Students in danger of failing due to too many course registrations will be reported to Dr. Baker, the La Salle/RTC Director, and will be advised accordingly.
Students in this program will be paying the RTC rate for all La Salle/RTC M.Ed. courses. Students are responsible for purchasing books and must bring all required course materials on the first day of class in order to attend and receive a grade in the course. Once a student is notified of class confirmation, books are available for purchase through MBS Direct at http://bookstore.mbsdirect.net/thertc.htm or 800.325.3252.
Students in this program who wish to enroll in additional La Salle courses not required for this program should consult with the program director.
Upon acceptance, you will receive a La Salle e-mail account and access to the La Salle University portal system, which includes online library resources to support your degree program.
Any student who intends to graduate will need to alert the program director and apply for graduation on the mylasalle portal. Graduation is Aug. 31, Jan. 15, and a designated day in May. Students who need confirmation of degree completion before the official graduation dates for salary purposes may request a letter, please contact Dr. Baker if such a letter is needed.
La Salle University is here to assist you through this process. Please contact Dr. Baker at gradRTC@lasalle.edu or 215.951.1955 for any questions and support.
