Alvernia understands that transfer students often have unique considerations and questions. With that in mind, we plan campus visits just for students transitioning from other institutions of higher learning, so experienced college students can see firsthand how Alvernia can help you reach your goals.
We have planned a special RACC Information Session for Reading Area Community College students on Friday, December 6th. This event will be held on Alvernia's campus, with transportation provided from RACC at 9:15am and back to RACC's campus after lunch. This RACC Transfer event will feature:
- Meet both the Undergraduate and Adult Transfer Coordinators
- Discussion about the Admissions process
- Financial Aid guidance for transfer students
- Campus tour
- Transcript Evaluation (please bring documents from RACC and any other schools attended)
- Complimentary lunch in the Dining Hall
If you are not a RACC student or are unable to attend, we are eager to help you to experience Alvernia University, so we invite you to a general Information Session, Saturday Hours or Open House event. All of these visits are relaxed yet informative, and feature the same activities as a transfer-only event. Be aware that we are working on adding more transfer events very soon.
You are also welcome to create your own Individual Visit, which is a one-on-one meeting with an Admissions Counselor to talk about the admissions and financial aid process, and a full tour of campus. Just like our events, if you have transcripts or other documents from previous schools you've attended, please bring those with you to your individual visit so that we can determine your academic starting point.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Undergraduate Admissions Office or call 610-796-8269, we're happy to help.
Please note: Events listed are only for students intending to take classes at our main campus in Reading. If you are interested in taking classes at our Schuylkill or Philadelphia Centers, please contact those locations directly to schedule your visit.
