The overall cost for on-campus students to attend DeSales in 2020 - 2021 was $57,194. To calculate future costs, we looked at the prior five years of data and determined that this cost increased an average of 3.1% each year. If this trend continues, we expect the full cost for incoming freshmen to be $60,807 during their first year. By their senior year, that cost will be approximately $66,658 for a bachelor degree candidate ($62,698 for an associate degree candidate) for a total of $254,811 over the course of four years ($123,505 over the course of two years).
