Access, Retention, and Success Programs

Avila University (MO)

Avila University helps students succeed academically and stay on track to graduation through first-year seminars; trained study skills tutors; undergraduate research opportunities; and interdisciplinary studies courses for juniors and seniors that blend two disciplines, often include a study abroad component and a service component. In addition, Avila, in partnership with the local Rotary, offers a full scholarship to two incoming first-generation, low-income students who plan to pursue nursing careers.
