The Standard Full-time Plan is available Mondays and Wednesdays at the Lehigh Valley site.

The Lehigh Valley Center offers a part-time plan for students as well. Students in this plan ordinarily take classroom courses (6 credits) two evenings a week in fall and spring semesters and one course (3 credits) two evenings a week in either or both summer sessions. The Field Education requirements are carried out concurrently with the required classroom courses in the second and/or the final years.

The Lehigh Valley Program offers classes on Monday and Wednesday afternoons and evenings .

DeSales University is situated in Center Valley, close to the city of Allentown, a part of the Lehigh Valley in eastern Pennsylvania. Allentown and the adjacent cities of Bethlehem and Easton have a combined population exceeding 200,000 and support a variety of cultural and community activities. Inasmuch as the University is within 55 miles of Philadelphia, 90 miles of New York City, and easy commuting distance from New Jersey, students may find easy access to courses at this campus.
