What is a transfer student?

A student that has graduated high school and attended a community college or four-year university and has transferred from that college or university to another.

Transfer Orientation

Before school begins, we want all incoming transfer students to attend an orientation day to learn about campus resources, connect with other transfer students, learn about Avila technology, and complete important tasks to begin their journey as Avila students (get a parking permit, get a student ID, meet with financial aid). This orientation will take place during the weekend before the semester starts. 

If you missed our Spring 2022 Transfer Orientation, we recorded it for you!

Transfer Peer Mentors

The Transfer Peer Mentors are here to help guide you through your transition to Avila. They can answer questions about the university and give overall advice on being a successful student here at Avila.
