NOTE: The Alvernia University Admissions Office offers in-person campus visits to an individual student accompanied by two family members. For your safety and for the safety of our campus community, all campus visitors must adhere to the required visit protocols on our Individual Visits webpage. For ongoing information about Alvernia's COVID-19 management, please see our Health Alerts page.


We want you and your family to safely and comfortably experience Alvernia's campus. To make this possible for everyone, we have several options in addition to traditional in-person campus visits, such as online visits and a virtual tour. Please click from the menu at the left or scroll down to learn the details of each visit option. We are happy to help you  and arrange your preferred way to get to know Alvernia.
