How to Apply: New Students.

Along with your completed application accompanied by $100 non-refundable application fee, you’ll need to provide a few supporting materials. Alvernia University considers you an international student if you are a non–U.S. citizen or a non–U.S. permanent resident. U.S. citizens and permanent residents who have studied in foreign countries (excluding study abroad programs) must complete step 1. Because there’s lead time required for some items, here’s a step-by-step process that seems to work best for candidates:

  • Complete your application. While you wait for your transcripts to be processed, you can begin your application and mail it with your application fee to:


Alvernia University Philadelphia Center
Attn: Jenny Lee
1355 West Cheltenham Avenue
Melrose Park, PA 19027


  • A $100.00 non-refundable express application fee will need to be included with the application. (money order or check only)

  • A $20.00 non-refundable express mail shipping fee will need to be included with the application. (money order or check only)

  • A bank statement that is valid for six months.
  • Please complete this document if spouse and/or children will be accompanying student to the United States and require an F-2 visa: Dependent I-20 Request form. Please fill out the form and mail with your application.

  • A valid passport.

    Please refer to this Pre-Arrival Guide in applying for your visa, transferring, or changing your current status. If you have any questions or concerns regarding admissions to our university, please contact our office.
