Financial Aid

What Aid is Available?

Alvernia University offers a program of financial assistance that includes grants, scholarships, loans, and work-study opportunities. Our program is designed to provide assistance to families whose personal resources cannot meet the full cost of a student's education. Therefore, financial aid is a supplement to your family's own best efforts to contribute to your education.

The following categories of Financial Aid are available through Alvernia.
