Undergraduate Admissions & Aid
In reviewing your application, we consider both past academic achievement and your potential for future growth.
How will you know if DeSales is right for you? We know how stressful the application process can be. So our goal is to help you navigate the process and make the best college choice for you.
What are we looking for when we review your application? We’re especially interested in students who demonstrate significant achievement within a demanding curriculum. Your academic performance is the single most important factor in admission decisions. We welcome applications from qualified students regardless of race, religion, sex, national or ethnic origin.
We make it as simple as possible. To ensure a smooth and stress-free application process, we encourage you to apply early in your senior year. We have a rolling admission system, so we’ll notify you promptly about your admission status—usually within four weeks of receiving your completed application.
