Discover Alvernia University!

Here’s the first thing you need to know: We take your goals personally.

At Alvernia, no matter where you want to go, we want to help you get there. We’ll help you create a path to success that’s as individual as you are. Whether you want to advance your career or start a new one, Alvernia’s upcoming Information Night is the place to get started. Learn the specifics about graduate and continuing studies degree programs. Meet the professors and faculty you’ll be learning from. Discuss how you can get there with admission counselors. Meet and network with colleagues (and future classmates).

And for students who get employer tuition reimbursement, Alvernia offers a Tuition Deferment program. The program allows you to start your education with no upfront costs, and hold payment until the end of the semester. Stop by our September 18th Information Night, and we'll even waive the application fee to help get you started!
