Easing the Burden of
College Admissions

We believe that going to college should be an enjoyable experience, not one that is filled with jargon, barriers, and unnecessary hoops to jump through.  That’s why, at Villa, we’ve made it simple to apply, be accepted, enroll, and pay for college. Here’s how:

Deposit Requirement is Lifted: Incoming students are not required to pay a deposit to secure a spot in your class. Instead, we will provide a deposit waiver for you to sign.

Rolling Acceptance: There’s no pressure to meet an application deadline at Villa. Because you don’t have to send in a deposit by May 1, we’re able to accept you into the College when you apply.

No Application Fee: There is never an application fee to apply to Villa.

Test Optional: Don’t worry about the SAT and ACT; Villa does not require them for admissions.

Provisional Acceptance: During this time, we will make an acceptance decision with your unofficial transcripts that you can get yourself on your student portal.

Quick Response: Villa is committed to getting you an admission decision quickly and to guide you through the process. We can work with you over the phone, email, text, or on video.

Personalized Financial Aid: We will re-evaluate your financial aid package upon request. If you have been given a financial aid package and your financial situation has changed, let us know and we will re-evaluate your aid.
