Congratulations on your acceptance to Alverno College!


Alverno Accepted Introduction

It's time to design your future — to learn new things, explore your passions and seize new opportunities. It's time to build a solid foundation for your career and get ready for wherever your path takes you.

The next step in your Alverno journey is enrollment — and we're here to guide you through the process. Check out the resources below to begin.

Your Next Steps

Complete your financial aid application

The 2024-2025 FAFSA is now open! It is the only application to qualify for federal, state and institutional aid, which includes both grants and loans.

Why apply for federal aid?

Filing a FAFSA is the single most important thing you can do to get money for college. It's the gateway to more than $150 billion in college grants, work-study funds, and federal student loans, as well as certain state-based aid.

STEP 2    
Activate your Alverno account

Your username and password give you access to your email, our housing application system and other campus resources, including Interactive Online (IOL). IOL is the hub for many important student transactions.

Make your enrollment deposit

Let's make it official! Secure your acceptance by paying your $100 enrollment deposit, which goes toward your tuition. Your payment can be made online via our Interactive Online (IOL) site or by phone at 414-382-6100. Once we receive your deposit, you will receive information about orientation.

STEP 4    
Apply for scholarships

Complete your housing application

Our two residence halls, Austin Hall and Clare Hall, are nestled on 46-acres of lush green space with running and walking paths, picnic tables and places for socializing, studying and reflection. Both halls offer the convenience of living close to classrooms, academic resources, campus clubs and organizations, performances and friends. You'll also enjoy meal service, free parking, a fitness center, a full calendar of activities and easy access to downtown Milwaukee.

The application for 2024-2025 housing opens January 19, 2024. In the meantime, check our the links below to learn more about living on campus.




STEP 6     
SOAR – Student Orientation and registration

As you begin your Alverno journey, our SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration) program provides various paths for you to become acquainted with campus and your fellow #AlvernoStrong students. View dates below and join us to learn about registering for classes, social events, ways to find resources on campus, and opportunities to connect with faculty and staff. There will be opportunities to schedule individualized meetings with our financial aid representatives, as well as events for family members to learn more about Alverno (including Spanish-language family sessions).

STEP 7    
Send your transcript

Here we are! One step closer to your Alverno journey. Once you have completed your last semester of high school or college (prior to transfer), please request a final transcript that shows your final classes/grades for that institution. For high school, your graduation date must be included on the transcript.
