The Greater Philadelphia Secondary
LaSalle University’s Course Credit
- La Salle University has
agreed to waive the tuition cost for teachers who teach in our project’s
sponsored school districts and who participate as students in the
project’s math in-services.
- Tuition is waived only
for those courses specially designed for this project. Currently there are
about 18 such courses. Although these courses are math oriented, La Salle
considers them as elective graduate education courses. As such, you may
apply this course credit toward an education master’s degree at LaSalle,
or another higher education institution.
- For Pennsylvania
teachers, your school district grants ACT 48 credit. This project does
not. These courses qualify fro ACT 48 like any other graduate education
- You must register and
be processed through La Salle’s system like any other graduate student for
each course. Course credit cannot be granted without you being registered
and entered in the system. This can take some time if you were not
previously in the system.
- All of the normal
rules, and grading procedures and standards apply to you as any other
graduate student. Credit for previous courses cannot be granted
retroactively. Attendance at in-services is required. A product, project
or paper is due at the conclusion of the course that demonstrates your
understanding of the material.
- The project’s sponsored
courses must conform to La Salle University’s normal semester schedule for
course registration, submission and reporting of grades and the issuance
of transcripts. Typically for one of our 60-hour courses, we will submit your course registration in
January-- even though the in-services started in the previous summer. Your
grade will be reported in May or June.
Project sponsored courses which begin and end during one summer
will be process either during that summer or the fall term.
- Incompletes will be
granted for a three-month period. After that time, they will revert to
- Normally, La Salle
Registrars’ office will mail you an unofficial report of a your grade
after they have processed it. The
time to process your grade depends on the Registrar’s other workload for
tuition paying students. The time it takes for us to review your paper,
comment on it and submit a grade depends on our workload. June is the
heaviest month for project in-services
- You can request your
official transcript from the Registrar’s office either in person or by
hard copy mail. There is a $5 fee. The
registrar’s office will NOT give your grade out over the phone. For more
information, call their number at 215-951-1020. DO NOT call our office for
a transcript. We will sent you an unofficial report of your grade and
return your paper with comments.
- You can access your
grade and print your unofficial transcript by going to LaSalle’s web site http://www.lasalle.edu. Go to the Student heading and click on “Accessing Brother Luwis” Then click Log In. Your User ID is your SSN. And your Pin
