I didn't do very well in high school, will I be able to get into Xavier?
Each student-veteran is admitted on a case-by-case basis. When deciding to admit a student-veteran, our academic advisors evaluate high school transcripts and college transcripts, but also take into consideration military training and life experience. Additionally, the academic advisor and director of Xavier's Center for Veterans Affairs personally meet with each student-veteran to get to know more about his/her goals and experiences.
Do I have to take an entrance exam?
No. Student-veterans are not required to take an entrance or placement test when applying to Xavier.
Which VA education benefit covers all of my tuition and fees at Xavier?
If you are 100-percent eligible for the Chapter 33 Post 9/11 GI Bill, you qualify for the Yellow Ribbon Program, which covers all tuition and fees at Xavier. If you don't know if you are 100-percent eligible, go to the Determine Your Eligibility link on the VA website to view the criteria for eligibility for the Yellow Ribbon Program. Student-veterans under Chapter 31 VOCREHAB are also covered for all tuition and fees by the VA.
