Student Life: COVID-19 Response FAQs

  • An important note from the Student Life Office about this FAQ list

    We remain grateful for your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we work through these challenging times.

    Many of you are asking fine questions about immediate next steps and long-term expectations. Until further notice, DeSales University will conduct classes using an online learning platform. Also, while we are trying to address your questions with our communications and website updates, we realize that some of your questions may not be addressed. 

    A new email account, covid19@desales.edu, has been created for you and your families to ask all of your questions. Members of staff will receive these and direct them to the appropriate party for a response. 

  • What is happening with clubs, programs, and student activities?

    The Office of Student Engagement and Leadership (SEAL) has moved all operations to online for the remainder of the semester. 

    We encourage all students to log onto and bookmark ENGAGE for future student engagement and leadership involvement, programs, and updates (login with your MyDSU credentials) desales.edu/engage

    In addition, we encourage all students to follow our Instagram accounts for future involvement, programs, and updates.
