What Are the Benefits and How to Pay for Summer School
At Xavier, summer starts at the beginning of spring – for students who want to register for summer school, that is. Students may begin registering for summer classes on Monday, March 22.
To help defray the cost, Xavier has had a summer school grant program since 1995. Grants are awarded based on financial need and the number of credit hours enrolled. There is limited funding and grants are distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis. To apply, students must be registered for summer classes at Xavier and have their 2010-2011 Financial Aid renewal completed by completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
Students may benefit by taking summer courses by:
• Devoting more time to difficult courses that may be hard to do during the regular semester.
• Repeating courses to achieve satisfactory grades they may improve their grade point average. In some cases, student may even remove themselves from probation.
• Earnings academic credits, which allow them to progress toward early or on-time graduation.
• Regaining academic eligibility for federal and state financial aid.
