Why Choose Advantage?

Ask any Avila Advantage student or alum and they will tell you Avila is advantageous because of its …

Extraordinary support for the working student

Advantage staff see their primary purpose as helping you get in, get through, and on your way with a degree in hand. The accelerated degree programs are designed to fit the schedule of working adults.

One-stop enrollment, registration, and financial aid planning. No running from office to office or repeat visits to campus. Drop in at our office, do it online or over the phone.

You can get credit for work experience through a portfolio review process.

Advantage students enjoy the same career development, tutoring, advising, and counseling assistance as full-time students.

Faculty of working experts who teach for the love of it

Students rave about our instructors’ depth of knowledge, availability, and enthusiasm.

Only professionals with years of on-the-job experience in their field are hired to be Advantage instructors.

The programs are rigorous and geared toward practical application.

Unmatched convenience

Learn at your own pace. Choose an 8-week, online, or weekend-intensive format for maximum control over your time and schedule. Both the accelerated undergraduate programs and master’s programs are designed for the working adult.

Because accelerated classes are scheduled year-round, you can change and mix formats or even restart your program should life interrupt your semester.

The University’s location, just outside the I-435 loop in south suburban Kansas City, makes it quick and easy to get here and back to work or family.

A variety of tuition payment methods, such as deferred tuition and employer reimbursement, help to reduce education financing worries.

Track record of success

Employers know and respect the results and value of an Advantage program education.

You will benefit from a supportive and collaborative atmosphere, working and learning alongside classmates with various areas of experience and knowledge to share.

Avila Advantage programs are accredited by the Higher Learning Commission and the North Central Association of Colleges and Schools.
