A Smooth Transition
A Dedicated Counselor To Guide You Through the Transfer Process.
Alvernia University understands that transfer students have unique needs. You've already taken college classes elsewhere, you don't want to start from the beginning again. And you don't have to.
Whether you’re coming from a four-year institution or a community college, Alvernia is committed to providing you with personal attention and flexible class schedules that make it easy for you to join Alvernia's main campus community. We consider each student's academic record individually, so most students' previous coursework counts toward an Alvernia University Bachelor's degree, which typically means you continue on your educational journey without repeating a step.
To assist transfer students with their unique concerns and questions, AU's Senior Associate Director for Transfer Services Bret Krotee is dedicated to guiding you through the process. Based in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, he is ready to help you get where you want to go, so please feel free to contact his email, call him at 610-796-8269 or email our Admissions Office.
The AU transfer application process is simple:
- Submit an application via our AU online portal or The Common Application.
- Send us your official transcripts from high school and any colleges you've attended.
[Students interested in our Nursing program must also submit two letters of recommendation. These can be emailed or sent via postal mail to Alvernia University, Office of Undergraduate Admissions, Student Center, 400 Saint Bernardine St., Reading, PA 19607]
- Students must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (higher for some majors) from a regionally accredited two- or four-year institution.
- A maximum of 75 credits will be accepted in transfer. Students must complete a minimum of 45 credits at Alvernia to receive their degree.
- After we have your application and documents, we will review your application for admission and do an official transfer evaluation to determine your academic class level. Typically, courses are accepted to transfer if they are 100 level+ and you received a grade of C or better (this can be higher for certain majors).
