Along with your application, you’ll need to provide a few supporting materials. Please be aware that obtaining some of these items can take time (having transcripts from other schools sent to us), so plan ahead and be sure to get your application and other necessary documents to us in ample time so you can start classes when you wish. Items required for transfer admission include:
Official High School and College Transcripts. You must contact your previous institutions and request that they submit official transcripts to us for consideration. We need a transcript from the high school and any college(s) you have attended (GED scores are accepted as an alternative to a high school transcript).
All of your transcripts should be dated within a year of your application date and must include the school registrar's seal. These documents can be sent electronically to our Office of Undergraduate Admissions, or may be faxed to us at 610-796-2873. Transcripts can also be mailed (each in it's own a sealed school envelope) via the postal service to this address:
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
400 Saint Bernardine Street
Reading, PA 19607
Veterans must provide a copy of form DD-214. This form identifies the veteran's condition of discharge and must be submitted to the Admissions office for evaluation.
SAT/ACT scores are not required.
Don't forget to complete your application. Once you've contacted the other institutions you have attended, please submit your Alvernia University application so we can get you on your way to becoming a Crusader!
