Transfer Students

How to Apply as a Transfer Student.

Along with your application, you’ll need to provide a few supporting materials. Please be aware that obtaining some of these items can take time (having transcripts from other schools sent to us), so plan ahead and be sure to get your application and other necessary documents to us in ample time so you can start classes when you wish. Items required for transfer admission include:

All official High School and College Transcripts. You must contact your previous institutions and request that they submit official transcripts to us for consideration. We need a transcript from the high school and any college(s) you have attended (GED scores are accepted as an alternative to a high school transcript). 

All of your transcripts should be dated within a year of your application date and must include the school registrar's seal. These documents can be sent electronically to our Office of Undergraduate Admissions, or may be faxed to us at 610-796-2873. Transcripts can also be mailed (each in it's own a sealed school envelope) via the postal service to this address:

Alvernia University
Office of Undergraduate Admissions
400 Saint Bernardine Street
Reading, PA 19607


Nursing applicants must submit two letters of recommendation. Those who recommend you for admission may send the letters themselves via mail, email or fax.

Veterans must provide a copy of form DD-214. This form identifies the veteran's condition of discharge and must be submitted to the Admissions office for evaluation.

Generally SAT/ACT scores are not required. This applies to anyone transferring after 2 or more semesters attending at another college or university. However, if - following your high school graduation - you were enrolled for only one semester at another four-year institution, we will need to review your official test scores. 

Don't forget to complete your application. Once you've contacted the other institutions you have attended, please submit your Alvernia University application so we can get you on your way to becoming a member of the Golden Wolves pack! Even if you're a former Alvernia student who is re-enrolling after time away, you must file a new application.

You can click the button below to use The Common Application to apply online. Of course, you can also apply by mail by printing, completing and mailing our Undergraduate Application.
