You will need to complete this every year to be qualified for financial aid.

  • Sign and return your Financial Aid Award Letter within two weeks of receipt. Include any missing documents if listed on the letter.

  • If selected for verification, please print and complete the verification work sheet that corresponds to the dependency status reported on your FAFSA.  The forms can be downloaded at http://www.avila.edu/financialaid/forms.asp.  Once complete, please contact the financial aid office for further instructions. 


  • If you are accepting Stafford Loans for the first time, you will need to complete your master promissory note and entrance counseling at www.studentloans.gov.

Please remember: Loans of any type MUST BE REPAID whether or not you graduate or are satisfied with the education you receive.
