What online programs does Xavier offer?

Online programs are listed at Xavier Online Programs.

Will my degree say online?

No, the degree is from Xavier University and is awarded on meeting coursework standards that are independent of course delivery.

Do online courses charge a different rate?

Are online programs easier or harder than campus programs?

Some students believe that online courses will be easier than a face-to-face course. However, that is not true. Each online course at Xavier will have the same academic standards and content as a face-to-face course. You may find online learning to be easier because it suits your learning style, but the course content, the expectations for how much you will learn, and assessment of what you have learned will be just as rigorous as in a face-to-face class.

How will I interact with my instructor and other students?

Many students feel that in online learning they get to know their professor/instructor and other students better than in a traditional face-to-face course. There are many options for interacting with others in your online program, including discussion boards, video or audio lessons from your instructor, email, and video conferencing; these are only some of the options.

Do I need to order books?

You will need to review the syllabus for your course to determine how to obtain materials (print and digital) you will need for your course. The Xavier Bookstore and/or the Library will be happy to assist you in finding course materials. Some readings or media lessons may be posted digitally within the online course itself, or in Xavier's E-Reserves system.
