COVID-19 + Alverno Admissions

How is COVID-19 affecting Admissions at Alverno College?

We will update this page with information about how the coronavirus is affecting the admissions process at Alverno and also how it's affecting on-campus visits and events. If you have a question that it not addressed here, please contact us at 414-382-6100 or admissions@alverno.edu

 

Campus Visits

All on-campus events, tours and visits have been postponed. At this time, we are uncertain when on-campus activities will resume. College leaders continue to monitor the COVID-19 situation and will make decisions for the Alverno community based on guidelines from local, state and national health officials.

If you already scheduled a visit to campus, an admissions counselor will reach out to you to find a time to connect virtually. If you are registered to attend an upcoming on-campus event, check your email for further instructions. When possible, our events will be held virtually. In fact, we are planning some new events for you to connect with us and your future classmates!
