There is a lot to prepare before classes begin, and orientation is vital to your success as a new student at Alvernia. During orientation, you will learn how to navigate the myAlvernia/Self-Service and Blackboard systems that all students utilize in order to complete degree coursework. You will have an opportunity to have your ID picture taken, meet other new students, learn more about services offered from main campus staff, including financial aid, and address any questions you may have.


If you have not done so already, it is very important that you register for courses prior to the New Student Orientation. If you would like support with this process, please contact your advisor at or call 570-385-2382 to make an appointment to discuss your options.


If you have any questions prior to orientation, please email or call 570-385-2382.


We look forward to seeing you at orientation and assisting you throughout your academic career at Alvernia University!
