Adult Accelerated Programs

Alvernia’s undergraduate Adult Education programs are offered in an online and/or hybrid format and cannot accommodate a F-1 student visa at this time. International students looking to enroll in our online programs from their home country will need to have a tertiary (postsecondary) degree that is deemed comparable to a four-year U.S. bachelor's degree. This degree must be from an officially recognized degree-granting institution in the country in which it operates. Students must also submit proof of English proficiency. Information about admissions requirements for graduate programs can be found on the Admissions Adult Education Page-International Applicants page.
