Transfer to Alvernia


Transfer Students


Thinking of making a change?

Alvernia University welcomes students who are eager to continue their career preparation at a college committed to providing personal attention and flexible class schedules. We make it easy for you to become part of the Alvernia community, and we work with you to make your transfer a smooth process. Our transfer counselor is ready to help you navigate the process!

You have already taken classes, experienced college life, and started on your way toward your education and career goals. You don't want to have to start from the beginning. We consider each student's academic record individually, so most students find that their previous course work will count toward an Alvernia degree. Alvernia has a transfer partnership with the following two-year colleges:

  • Berks Technical Institute
  • Bucks County Community College
  • Community College of Philadelphia
  • Delaware County Community College
  • Harcum College
  • Harrisburg Area Community College
  • Lehigh Carbon Community College
  • McCann School of Business and Technology
  • Montgomery County Community College
  • Northampton Community College
  • Pennsylvania Institute of Technology
  • Reading Area Community College


In order to transfer to Alvernia, you must have a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 (higher for some majors) from a regionally accredited two- or four-year institution. A maximum of 75 credits will be accepted in transfer. Students must complete a minimum of 45 credits at Alvernia to receive their degree. After you have completed the application process, we will review your application for admission and do an official transfer evaluation to determine your academic class level.

Be sure to review our scholarships just for transfer students. And don't forget about financial aid! About 99% of our undergraduates receive some type of financial aid.

“In many cases, transferring schools mid-degree can be very tough on a student, however, at Alvernia University every effort was made to ensure that my transfer experience went as smoothly as possible! The fact that Alvernia accepts up to 75 transfer credits helped me save a lot of money while financing my education. The registrar and admissions offices, at both institutions, were very helpful as they worked side by side to make sure each one of my credits transferred flawlessly!”
