Degree: Accounting
Graduation Year: 2008

I took classes while working full time. Class times worked well with my schedule and I was able to complete in just over a year. The school was close to were I worked and lived and it was easy to talk to teachers. Most of my teachers had other jobs during the day so I felt like what I was learning was actually able to be used in the real world.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2017

Although I am just beginning the Masters in Counseling Psychology program, the support that I have received as a new student rivals the support that my previous university gave me. Academically, the courses are manageable, and the classes are at a time that is convenient for me since I am working full time on overnight shifts in order to help pay for school and living expenses. I do wish that there were more opportunities for student funding though. The opportunities that I have found seem amazing, but they are not conducive with the schedule of a student who has to work while in school.

Degree: Healthcare Management
Graduation Year: 2015

The Radiologic Science program at Avila University really helped prepare me for a career after college. I felt like Avila was the best place for me to start my career from the moment I walked through the doors. The director of the program was my advisor and mentor. She stood behind me through my entire journey. All of the instructors were amazing people. They were always avaiable before, during, or after class hours to help with an assignment or just to listen to anything I had to say. They were all very knowlegable of the courses they each taught. Most of all, they pushed me. They pushed me to achieve my goal of graduating with a bachelor's degree.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

Not challenging at all. Courses are designed to pass students with open book tests, take home "group" exams, huge amount of extra credit options, courses where one does not have to read any textbooks or articles, etc. My undergraduate courses were much harder than the graduate level courses offered by Avila. If you're looking for a school that is easy go here. If you want to learn go elsewhere.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2016

Avila University has a strong tie with the community, which allows student access to quality internships. The program allows students to understand human behavior and diversity in a nonjudgmental way. The disadvantage is the cost.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2014

Not working, family oriented student friendly. Some faculty are inflexible in understanding school is an addition to life not life itself. Previous faculty 2012 and before were great!

Love my school; most of the professors are great. I just wish there were more scholarships available.

Degree: Counseling
Graduation Year: 2016

Avila has a great faculty who works hard to teach students what they will need to be successful in their fields. The graduate programs are typically in the evening and as many students work, building a peer group community is difficult. Professors are always very happy to meet outside of office hours. Because it is a private university, scholarships are hard to come by through the school.

Degree: Social Sciences
Graduation Year: 2015

The Avila Advantage program is for working adults, and it is a great way to get back into school if you've been out for a while. I have enjoyed the program so much that I am looking to work on a second masters at the same time.

Degree: Psychology
Graduation Year: 2015

I feel like the small class sizes are great in this program! I really feel like the faculty gets to know each student well and can make a difference in our education process. I think the program is overly expensive with little to no financial help and very little diversity among the population.
