Applying to Study Abroad

Xavier uses an online study abroad system to facilitate the application process. When you log into the system with your Xavier credentials, you will be able to select your program and view all application requirements. 


Every student must apply to study abroad with the Center for International Education through the online application system. For every program the student plans to attend, an application must be completed regardless of any program-specific application that may also be required. There is a $50 fee associated with this application form. If studying abroad on multiple programs in one academic year, the fee needs to only be paid once. Xavier does not approve or recognize a student's study abroad experience without the completion of this application.
