Transferring to Avila is easy (and affordable).

We love transfer students. Each year nearly one-third of our new students are transfers, like you.  So our faculty and advisors are experienced at helping you get the most out of your transfer credits. They’ll help take the stress out of transferring so you can get the most out of your college experience.


At Avila you can...

  • Choose from over 60 majors, including nursing, film/digital media, graphic design, education and kinesiology.
  • Get involved in more than 40 student organizations from Alpha Epsilon Delta honor society to The Talon newspaper staff.
  • Become an Eagle fanatic for 12 NAIA varsity sports – including our new women’s lacrosse team in 2017.
  • Find inspiration in a community of students from 18 countries around the world.

Qualify for up to $10,000 in scholarships.
