University of Valley Forge's (UVF) community offers on its sprawling park-like campus, as well as online, undergraduate and graduate degrees in the Arts, the Sciences and the Professions. The College offers 67 undergraduate majors and 7 graduate programs, and has a 14:1 student-to-faculty ratio. Students have the opportunity to participate in 10 varsity sports as well as intramural sports and campus clubs.


At UVF, students are challenged to go beyond themselves, embrace their faith and change the world. We help students get hands-on experience to better prepare them for their future career. Opportunities abound for mission trips, internships, practical experience, and cultural and social opportunities. We also come together daily in classrooms, Chapel, residence halls and the dining hall to learn, worship, serve and lead together. UVF is focused on equipping students with the tools necessary for a life of service and leadership in the church and in the world.


UVF is very affordable. 98% of students receive financial aid, including Pell Grants, Pennsylvania state grants and many institutional scholarships. Abundant off-campus employment is available close to the college and our CO-OP jobs program also provides almost 200 on-campus jobs for students.


Professors are committed to excellence in the classroom and to building quality relationships with students that last a lifetime. The personal interactions between students, faculty and staff are a unique part of the close-knit community at UVF.


The 150-plus acre campus is located among the rolling hills of historic Chester County, Pa. It is situated only a few hours from New York, Baltimore and DC.
