Why DeSales University?

  • Our faculty are working professionals. You'll be taught by active industry leaders who marry textbook theory with real-world application of tools, processes, and methodologies.
  • We offer multiple start dates throughout the year. Flexible schedules accommodate working adults. Classes can be taken on campus or online.
  • Life happens, and we'll support you. If you move, need to dedicate more time to family or postpone school for a finite period of time, you can take up to seven years to complete your degree.
  • If your employer offers tuition reimbursement, you are able to defer your tuition payment until the end of the session when you receive your employer's reimbursement.
  • The cost of our programs is "all inclusive". We show you all costs and fees up front so you won't be surprised – technology fees, tutoring, and any resources that support student success are included.
  • Your advisor acts as your liaison from the time you inquire into the program, through application, acceptance, course selection, and on to graduation.
