Our Undergraduate Admissions staff is dedicated and focused on helping students and their families through the admissions process. We want to get to know you - and your vision for your future - and help you determine if Alvernia is the right fit for you.


There are many facets to choosing a college and we will assist you in any way you wish, from visiting our campus to submitting your application to enrolling as an Alvernia student. Our experienced, friendly Admissions counselors are always available to guide you along your own individual path to earning your degree (and enjoying your life as a college student along the way), whether you are a high school senior, a student transferring from another college, a military veteran or an international student.


You can contact each Admissions Counselor below by clicking their name to email them directly. You can also email our main Admissions inbox or call our office at 610-796-8269. If you would like to email current students about life on our campus, contact our Golden Guides student ambassadors via email at golden.guides@alvernia.edu.


Don't hesitate to reach out, we are happy to assist in any way!
