Paying for college

An Alverno education is more affordable than you might think: Nearly 100% of full-time undergraduate students who sought financial aid received assistance. Alverno’s designation as a Hispanic-Serving Institution — the first in Wisconsin — gives ALL of our students, no matter their background, access to additional federal grants and scholarships. Our financial aid department is happy to walk you and your student through the process.

Fall 2020 Calendar

Academic leaders shifted the 2020 academic calendar to provide for an earlier start, which will allow classes to run straight through to Thanksgiving without a break. The means the following for students:

  • After Thanksgiving, starting Monday, Aug. 30, all classes will resume remotely without any in-person course meetings.
  • All final assessments will be conducted virtually, and there will be no return to campus for students for in-person instruction from Thanksgiving until the start of the spring 2021 semester in late January 2021.
  • The fall 2020 semester officially ends on Wednesday, Dec. 9.
  • For students in our residence halls, this means both Austin and Clare halls will close at 12 p.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 25.
  • The halls will reopen for students at 10 a.m. on Sunday, January 24.
