Financial Aid at DeSales

The goal of our financial aid program is to close the gap between the total cost of a DeSales education and what a family can afford. We encourage families with concerns about affording a DeSales tuition to call us to discuss the options available. More information on Financial Aid at DeSales can be found here.
