Payment in Full
Avila University accepts Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Diner's club and Novus Network (Discover), cash, personal checks, and money orders. Tuition in full is due at the time of registration or the evening of the first class.
Payment Per Class
Students may choose to pay for each class on or before the first night of class. There is no fee for this option.
Students are responsible for the total tuition and other miscellaneous charges even though a third party may reimburse the student or pay the university directly. If your company reimbursement occurs at the completion of the course, then you are responsible to pay the tuition and fees up front. With an authorization to bill an outside source, the Avila business manager will bill your company after the first night of class and you are not responsible to pay up front. This authorization to bill an outside source does not create a credit balance.
Employer’s Tuition Reimbursement Program Agreement
For students who participate in a company tuition reimbursement program, the Avila Advantage program offers the Tuition Reimbursement Program Agreement. The following guidelines apply:
a) Student agrees to pay Avila University a fee of $50 per “traditional” semester for the privilege of paying tuition and fees after the completion of a course rather at the beginning of the course.
b) Student shall be solely responsible for paying Avila University the amount, which represents the tuition, fees and other charges for those courses for which he or she is registered. Said payment shall be paid in full by student within 45 days of completing those courses even if the employer should fail to reimburse for any reason.
c) Avila may declare an agreement in default if student fails to make timely payments or breaks any condition of the agreement, resulting in an accelerated unpaid balance and interest accrual of amount owed, and if necessary, take any action to accomplish collection. Delinquent sums shall bear an interest rate of one and one-half percent (1.5%) per month.
d) Should the student withdraw from any classes, he or she agrees to pay any balance due in accordance with the withdrawal and payment policy as published in the Avila University catalog.
e) With regard to any classes not covered by the Employer’s Tuition Reimbursement Program, student shall pay the tuition, fees, and any other charges owed to Avila University for same as it applies in accordance with the normal payment policies of Avila University. Payment is due and payable on the first evening of that particular class.
f) Student is responsible for remitting payments on time in accordance with terms of this agreement. Student understands that delinquent accounts will result in the discontinuation of further enrollment and release of transcripts until accounts are paid in full.
FINANCIAL AID AND LOANS
1. Avila Advantage students who register for at least six (6) credit hours may be eligible for financial aid. All aid applicants must be accepted for admission and enrolled in courses prior to awards being offered. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form must be completed with Avila University's school code (002449) reported on the application.
2. A financial aid award notification will be sent via email to the student's Avila account, as well as the email address reported on the FAFSA. Students can access, view, and accept/decline awards on the myAU portal.
3. Students should review the documents requested by the Financial Aid Office. All documents must be received prior to the disbursing of aid.
4. Financial Aid, including loans, must be fully processed and loan checks or disbursing dates must be on record at registration time to be considered as reducing the balance due. If this is not the case, you will be responsible on the due date for payment.
5. Where loans are involved, the proceeds must be applied to any balance due.
