Our Registrar will consider courses from an accredited institution with a minimum grade of C. We also will work with you to transfer any courses that you took pass/fail. Click here to upload your unofficial transcripts, and we’ll give you an unofficial estimate of how your credits will transfer to Alverno.

For students currently in their final semester, we will need official transcripts once your official grades have been posted.

“I wanted to come to Alverno because the staff and professors are very involved in making sure you succeed. Alverno offered me a scholarship for my grades at my previous school. I felt that my hard work had paid off, and that Alverno noticed and rewarded me. With that, I knew I had the support I was looking for in a school.”
