Transfer scholarships and grants become official when a student has been admitted, received a comprehensive financial aid award letter and returned a signed copy of that letter to the Office of Financial Aid. All Avila financial aid is renewable as long as a transfer student is enrolled full-time, meets renewal criteria and/or continues to demonstrate financial need. The value of an academic merit scholarship is determined at the time of a transfer student's admission to the University. Transfer students may qualify for the following transfer scholarships and grants to assist with financing an Avila education. All transfer scholarships and grants are based on available funding.
