School Information

Alvernia combines the personal touch and attention of a small private college with many of the opportunities of a larger university. Our students benefit from a liberal arts foundation that offers a well-rounded education. Students receive first-rate professional preparation through real-world learning, providing them with the skills and knowledge needed for career success. As one of only 24 Franciscan institutions in the U.S., our values-based learning philosophy is guided by the ideal of "knowledge joined with love". Our emphasis on developing ethical leaders with moral courage is blended with a commitment to service in a welcoming campus environment.

Why They Value Veterans

Alvernia welcomes all veterans, active duty personnel, and members of the Guard and Reserves. We are committed to supporting the continuing education needs of American military personnel. Your Veterans Affairs, Federal, and State education benefits are part of the compensation you earned for serving your country. We recognize that service and offer access to over 50 associates, bachelor's, master's and doctoral degree programs. Additionally, we offer the opportunity to attend Alvernia under the Yellow Ribbon Program, credit for military training, easy transfer of previously completed credits, assistance in applying and enrolling, and exclusive use of Alvernia's Veterans' Center.
