Student & Graduate Reviews

4.4 out of 5.0
Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Acute Care)
Graduation Year: 2020

I am currently enrolled at DeSales University in the Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program. The program is a hybrid program. I received my undergrad at an all on-campus Nursing program. When I initially applied to DeSales University I was skeptic because I had never tried an online program. But I can honestly say that I love it. I didn't think that I would have the support I needed but I was proved wrong. I would reccommend this program at this school to anyone interested.

Degree: Nurse Practitioner (Family)
Graduation Year: 2020

DeSales University is a has a beautiful campus with classrooms that are state-of-the -art. I chose DeSales for my Nurse Practitioner education because of the flexibility the program offers. The online and hybrid courses easily work around my busy schedule.
5.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2018

I attended Immaculata University for my Bachelors in Business Administration. Worried that this alone was not enough to set me apart from others to potential employees, I researched graduate school. I found that Immaculata had a partnership with DeSales University where I could receive my MBA in 5 years rather than 6, which saved me a year in tuition. My classes are small, so the teachers have ample time to ensure that every student understood the material. I have found that the classes I have taken are extremely useful in my day to day work. Overall, this accelerated MBA was one of the best choices I have ever made.

Degree: Health Sciences
Graduation Year: 2011

Valued education. Beautiful campus. Competitive athletics.
4.2 out of 5.0
Degree: Criminal Justice
Graduation Year: 2017

In terms of a Criminal Justice Graduate Program, I believe that DeSales could be in the top contenders. Though it is a little known school, it deserves all praise for its impressive staff, wonderful curriculum, and amazing program. Not only do they have a Five-Year Masters program, but they have also partnered with the local police department so students may graduate with police officer certification (called Act 120 here in PA) and a degree.

Degree: Nursing
Graduation Year: 2019

DeSales University is an outstanding University. It is located in the country of Center Valley and is surrounded by rolling hills - green grass and beautiful trees. Ever since I enrolled, I have found myself at ease at scheduling classes and completing those classes. I have had an amazing experience with my advisors and my professors. I am currently a stay at home mom after working for five years as a registered nurse. With the help of, I'm hoping to progress my schooling and take more classes at once to reach my dream of becoming a Family Nurse Practitioner and a clinical instructor for future nurses.

Degree: Business
Graduation Year: 2015

I have really enjoyed my graduate program thus far. I have taken all of my courses online. The teachers are friendly and understanding toward work life balance. The courses are interesting and are easily applied to my every day life. The online program gives me flexibility as well as a sense of relaxation while I am taking my courses.
2.83 out of 5.0
Degree: Human Resources
Graduation Year: 2016

DeSales University is a quiet university located in a beautiful area of the Lehigh Valley. Their campus is always nicely maintained and cared for. I've taken several grad courses at DeSales. Some of the courses I've taken have been challenging but extremely rewarding. I've taken two particular courses that I sincerely have no idea why I had to pay for them. I basically taught myself the material and the professor rarely ever responded to emails. The school, like most grad schools, does not provide financial aid for grad students. This is a huge financial burden and something that prevents me from taking more than one course at a time.
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Biology
Graduation Year: 2015

The faculty is SO accessible, we really are learning a lot - and they're very concerned with job placement for us. The cons are that it's rather expensive, you don't get help really with financial aid because it's graduate school, and you end up taking out quite a bit in loans.
