ABSN Program Tuition and Fees

The nursing knowledge and experiences you’ll gain as a student in the Accelerated Bachelor of Science in Nursing (ABSN) program at Averett University are invaluable to your nursing future. That said, they do require a personal investment that may require some financial planning.

Given the many career options that become available to you once you earn a BSN, our 16-month ABSN program is an asset to your future. With multiple start dates per year, it’s possible for you to access that future sooner.

Financial Aid

You may qualify for federal funding eligibility to help cover some of the costs associated with accelerated nursing school. To find out, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.gov. Averett University’s FAFSA code is 003702.

Financial Aid for Military Service Members and Veterans

To help make pursuing a college education more affordable for active-duty service members and military veterans — and in recognition of their service — Averett University proudly participates in the Yellow Ribbon Program and certifies the GI Bill.

The University also offers other financial aid and support resources for service members, making it no wonder why U.S. News & World Report ranked Averett University as the seventh best regional college in the south for veterans. Averett was also the only Virginia school to rank among the “2021 Best Colleges for Veterans.”

Scholarships for Service Members

Averett is the sole university recipient of the Dan Daniel-Military Resale Invitational Endowed Scholarship since 2012. The scholarship is available to full-time, undergraduate, traditional or non-traditional students at Averett University who are either veterans; reserve or active duty military members; or a spouse or offspring of deceased, wounded, veteran or active duty military member. 

Military Tuition Discount

If you are the family member of someone serving in the military or you yourself are in the military, you may qualify for a discounted tuition rate for the Averett ABSN program. In recognition of the service the military provides, Averett University offers a generous 25% discount to the following groups and their family members:

  • All military members (active or reserve)
    • If a student is using Tuition Assistance (TA), he or she may not qualify for the 25% discount. Please contact your military educational officer for further information on benefits.
  • Honorably discharged veterans
  • Department of Defense (DoD) civilian employees
  • State National Guard employees

If you have any questions about taking advantage of your military benefits to enroll in nursing school or applying for Averett’s scholarship for military service members and their families, please contact our Financial Aid Office at 1-800-AVERETT. This office can also help all students with completing the FAFSA and financing their accelerated nursing education.
