Students who have taken CLEP examinations may apply for college credit for this work. Xavier grants credit in a number of disciplines depending on the student's score on the appropriate CLEP examination. Students must arrange to have official test scores sent to Xavier University. Xavier's school code is 1965.

All registered students are required to enroll in a payment plan each semester. If you do not enroll, you will receive a weekly email reminding you to do so and a hold will be placed on your bursar account until the enrollment process (which takes only a minute or two) is completed.
Yes. To be eligible for a CAPS (part-time students only) or Weekend Degree Program grant:
- Students must file the FAFSA.
- After Xavier's Office of Financial Aid receives notice that the FAFSA has been filed, they will send a request, by email, to the student, asking for the student's enrollment plan. The enrollment plan indicates how many credit hours the student plans to take during each semester of the academic year. The student must return this enrollment plan to the Office of Financial Aid.
By taking these two steps, filling out a FAFSA and returning an enrollment plan to Financial Aid, CAPS (part-time only) students and Weekend Degree Program (full-time and part-time) students will be considered for CAPS/Weekend Degree Program grants.
Full-time CAPS students are not eligible for CAPS grants. Students must still fill out a FAFSA and enrollment plan to receive merit grants and need-based grants through the Office of Financial Aid.
If you have any questions, please feel free to call the CAPS office or your financial aid counselor.
