Tuition Exchange/Waiver Meetings are scheduled for Wednesday, September 26 at 9:00 a.m. in the University Center Hurd Room and Thursday, September 27 at 1:00 p.m. in the University Center Heritage Room. 

One of the benefit offerings for full time employees of DeSales University is the opportunity to apply for and to participate in one of two Tuition Exchange scholarship programs available to eligible children of our staff and faculty.  Meetings to discuss these and the Tuition Waiver process will be held Wednesday, September 26th at 9:00 a.m. in the University Center Hurd Room and Thursday, September 27th at 1:00 p.m. in the University Center Heritage Room.

This meeting is primarily for our employees who are the parents of students entering their junior or senior year of high school this fall.   If you do not have a student in one of these categories but are interested in information for future reference you are also welcome to attend.  Come with your questions – members of our Admissions and Human Resources staff will be available to answer.

Please contact Donna Mikol in the Human Resource Office at ext. 1508 or Heather Black at ext. 1660 if you have scheduling conflicts and we will gladly send you related material and/or handouts from the meeting.

Mandatory Residency Certification Form

This is a reminder that the provisions of Commonwealth of Pennsylvania Act 32 require that every employee (including students with work study or institutional employment jobs) must complete a Residency Certification Form.

A copy of this Form can be accessed here:  Download Local EIT Residency Certification

You will only need to complete the “Employee Information – Residence Location” section. You can also ignore the “Resident EIT Rate” box in that section.  The following link will help you to determine the PSD Code to include on your Form: http://munstatspa.dced.state.pa.us/FindLocalTax.aspx.  Please note that you may need to temporarily allow pop-ups to properly use this Lookup feature.  Also, a P.O. Box cannot be used for either the Form or the Lookup; you must use a street address.

Please submit your completed Residency Certification Form to Carol Ritter in Payroll as soon as possible.  Please also note that you cannot be paid until this Form has been completed and provided to Payroll.  Unless your home address has recently changed, you do not need to complete another Form if you already have one on file with Payroll. 

Questions?  Contact Carol Ritter at x1256.

DeSales University ID Card and the Upcoming Election

On Wednesday, March 14, 2012, Governor Tom Corbett signed into law House Bill 934, also known as the Voter Photo ID Bill, which will require Pennsylvanians to produce photo identification to vote in state elections.  The law defines acceptable forms of photo identification which include, among other things, identification issued by, “…an accredited Pennsylvania public or private institution of higher learning…”.  The law also requires the identification card contain the voter’s name, photo, and an expiration date.

Currently, the DeSales University ID card does not include a printed expiration date.  If any student wishes to use the DeSales University ID card for the upcoming election, they may visit the card office to receive a compliant version which includes a printed expiration date.  As an exercise of the University’s civic duty and as a convenience to our students this service will be offered free of charge.  Please note the voter compliant card will not be activated for use with dining, building access, library, or any other campus functions.

The University card office is open Monday thru Friday from 9:00AM – 5:00PM.

For more information regarding the new law, please visit www.votespa.com .
