3 reasons to put Averett University at the top of your list

Reason #1: Quality!

Big dreams really do become bold futures at Averett, a liberal arts university that offers -

  • small classes taught by highly qualified and attentive professors.
  • a close, safe and caring community.
  • student life rich with athletics, student clubs and activities, and performing arts.
  • a campus-wide focus on personal attention and support.
  • high graduate-placement rates into jobs and graduate schools.


Reason #2: Affordability!

Averett makes a high-quality education affordable by:

  • generously giving financial aid to 99 percent of our full-time undergraduate students.
  • designing scholarship packages that lower the cost of attending by almost 40 percent for most students. (No student pays the full cost to attend Averett.)
  • increasing tuition annually by only 4 percent compared to the national average of 8 percent.
  • keeping costs down - students' costs at Averett are less than those of 80 percent of other private colleges in Virginia.
  • consulting with families individually to maximize aid and to customize payment options.


Reason #3: Prestige!

Averett truly is Southern Virginia's premier university:
