International Students

As an international student you have a lot of options in choosing the right college/university for you in the United States.  Alvernia is a small private liberal arts university located in Reading, PA. We are just outside of Philadelphia and a car ride away from New York, Baltimore, and Washington, D.C.  Alvernia is the best of both worlds!

Alvernia is a great university for students of all backgrounds.  Our Franciscan heritage promotes the welcoming everyone with open arms and without judgment.  We value the asset you will be to our campus community as an international student and an ambassador for your country/culture.  Our campus is eager to have you be a part of our family!
