How to Apply: Transfer 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

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