A completed Application for Admission must be submitted by all prospective students. The application process includes a personal statement of no more than 200 words indicating the reasons you are applying for the program you are interested in. For the Graduate Program, there is also a writing sample of no more than 500 words within the application process.
Only one application needs to be filled out. Potential students may apply by the deadline of the quarter in which they would like to begin courses. Once accepted into the Avila Institute, you will be notified concerning registration for courses each quarter.
There is a nonrefundable application fee of $40 for laity and $15 for the ordained and religious (including consecrated) to be submitted with the application. We will continue to take applications after the due date for a late application fee of $75 for laity and $25 for ordained and religious.
