How to Apply: First-Time University Students


Along with your completed application accompanied by $25 non-refundable application fee, you’ll need to provide a few supporting materials. 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 online application - Begin your online application, which lets you build, edit and save sections of your application along the way. 


  • Provide evidence of high school completion/graduation - Documentation may include high school transcript, diploma, GED scores, or equivalent. All documentation should be mailed to:

Alvernia University
Attn: School of Graduate & Adult Education Admissions
540 Upland Avenue
Reading, PA 19611

  • Scores from the SAT or ACT are not required
  • Provide a copy of form DD214 from military (if applicable) - Veterans need to provide a legible copy of the DD214 (also known as separation or discharge papers).
