Orientation is vital to your success as a new student at Alvernia. You will learn how to navigate the myAlvernia/Self-Service and Blackboard systems that all students utilize in order to complete degree coursework. All students with Alvernia ID numbers will have an opportunity to have their ID picture taken, pick up a parking pass, and purchase textbooks.

In addition, representatives from Student Financial Planning and the Student Billing Office will be available to discuss/review financial aid awards, eligible tuition deferment, payment plans, e-Refunds and using anticipated financial aid to purchase textbooks and other supplies.

If you have not done so already, it is very important that you register for courses prior to Orientation. If you would like support with this process, please contact your academic advisor to make an appointment to discuss your options.

Verification of your attendance, as well as additional guests, is required by Monday, August 15th. To RSVP, please email gradandadult@alvernia.edu or call Allison Garl 610-796-5187. Driving directions and a campus map are available on our website.

We look forward to seeing you at the orientation and assisting you throughout your academic career at Alvernia University!
