Athletic Scholarships

For students who plan to participate in athletics your Avila University award is done differently. All prospective athletes must file the FAFSA and work individually with the coach to determine your total award. The award determined by your coach combines your academic and your athletic award in one scholarship. We know you are both a student and an athlete and want to award you as one! Visit Avila Athletics to find out more.

Federal and State Aid

Outside Scholarships

The value of an academic merit scholarship is determined at the time of a transfer student's admission to the University.


Transfer scholarships and grants become official when a student has been admitted, completed the FAFSA, 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. All transfer scholarships and grants are based on available funding.
