Our Mission

The Alvernia University Department of Student Financial Services is composed of a team of dedicated professionals committed to serving students by providing them information to secure the necessary financial resources to meet their educational goals and financial obligations to the university. We provide quality customer service in helping students and their families seek, obtain, and make the best use of all financial resources while being excellent stewards of university funds and complying with Federal and Institutional regulations and guidelines.

In pursuing our mission, we strive to uphold the highest degree of professionalism, confidentiality, honesty, and integrity; embrace emerging technologies; provide guidance and support for students; and work collaboratively with all areas of the University, recognizing that only together can we achieve our common goal to enhance enrollment and retention, as well as the academic and financial success of our students.

Our Vision

Student Financial Services will be a leader by providing an informative and comprehensive financial aid and student accounts experience. We seek to create a culture of care and to deliver resources that allow all students the opportunity for education through an ongoing commitment to our values: service, humility, peacemaking, contemplation, and collegiality. The Office staff strives to empower and assist our students and other University customers with accurate and timely responses to their inquiries.

Quick Resources

All tuition and fees are payable by the due date in advance of each enrollment period. Students with outstanding obligations will not be permitted to pre-register for an upcoming semester unless financial arrangements have been made with the Office of Student Financial Services prior to pre-registration. Alvernia University reserves the right to change tuition, fees and other charges from one academic semester to the next as deemed necessary in order to meet its financial commitments and to fulfill its role and mission.
