Financial Aid


Financial Aid

Approximately one-half of our students receive Student Aid and the average amount is 25 percent of total costs.  Several types of financial aid are available to SVA students based on academic qualifications and financial need.  If applying for financial aid, parents are required to submit the SVA Application for Student Aid to our Business Office (Attn: Cindy Champion) along with the first two pages of your federal 1040 form.

Applicants for financial aid are required to submit standardized test scores, such as MAP, ITBS, PSAT, preACT or scores from other nationally-normed standardized exams.  Copies of scores from these exams should be sent to the Director of Admissions at SVA.
