For Transfer Students

Our transfer students quickly discover what makes DeSales so unique compared to their previous schools. From the open door policy of our faculty, to the genuine friendliness of their peers, to smaller lecture class sizes, the DeSales difference lets transfer students know they've come to the right place.

Students who are considering transferring know how gut-wrenching this decision is. What if I am just as unhappy or unsatisfied at this next school as the last? What if I make the wrong decision? These were definitely some of [my] first thoughts about transferring from my previous university. Although weary at first, I thank myself every day for taking that leap and transferring to DeSales.

...I was able to set foot on campus as a first semester junior with no problems. Additionally, my academic achievements at NCC allowed me to gain scholarships at DeSales, effectively cutting my tuition by over half. These factors, coupled with the incredible staff, campus, and values at DeSales made my decision to transfer beyond easy.
