NOTE: This listing includes the most common tuition and fees charged by the University. Specific course, lab and material fees are listed in the Schedule of Classes.


Tuition rates are assessed to a student based on the student's primary matriculation as a graduate or undergraduate student as determined by the academic policies of the University. Students taking courses for audit purposes are charged regular tuition rates.


Any student registered and charged at the 1-6 credit-hour rate who adds more hours will have overall tuition recalculated at the 7-11 credit-hour rate or full-time rate depending on the number of additional hours added.

Any student registered and charged at the 7-11 credit-hour rate who withdraws during or after the published schedule adjustment period (usually the first seven calendar days of the semester) will receive a tuition credit for the withdrawn hours based on the published refund schedule. The student's overall tuition will be recalculated based on the remaining number of liable billing hours.

Failure to attend class(es) is not sufficient notice to the University to qualify for a refund and may result in a punitive grade of VF (failure to officially withdraw) on the student's academic record.

Not all fees are refundable after classes begin.

Refunds for students approved to move off-campus are based on the day the student leaves University housing.

Meal plan refunds are based on the above tuition Refund Schedule. Any meal plan refund issued in the first through seventh calendar day of the semester will be based on actual usage.

Intensive English Program (formerly ESL) students follow a different refund schedule. Please contact the Center for International Education for more information.

In extraordinary circumstances, such as serious illness or injury, when a student is forced to withdraw from classes after the refund period has ended, a written appeal may be made to the dean of the college requesting special consideration. Appropriate documentation is required with such an appeal.

Policies are subject to change.

Any registration after early registration through the first day of school is defined as "open" registration. All students are required to arrange for payment of tuition and fees at the time of open registration to avoid cancellation.


Late registration refers to any registration that occurs after school begins. All late registrants are required to make payment arrangements within 48 hours of registering late.


There are two ways to pay. You can pay in full each month by paying the balance reflected on the eBill or you can enroll in the X-Flex Payment Plan. The payment plan will calculate the minimum amount due for the student, taking into account any awarded financial aid, and may require an initial minimum payment at the time of enrollment in the plan. All payment plans are subject to change.

A Late Fee is assessed on any amount that is past due and unpaid at the rate of 1% (rate subject to change). The Late Fee is assessed one business day (around the 14th of each month) prior to the publication of the next eBill. These plans can be reviewed at


Checks and ACH payments returned unpaid by the bank result in the assessment of a service charge of $25 per check against the issuer's account or against the account of the student on whose behalf the check was presented. Failure to make prompt payment for returned checks will result in the cancellation of registration, as well as other collection activity. All collection costs are the responsibility of the student on whose behalf the check was presented.


Students who officially withdraw from the University or withdraw from class(es) may be eligible for a refund of tuition based upon the amount of tuition assessed and the date of official withdrawal. (See withdrawal policies on the Registrar's website. Students must officially withdraw through the Office of the Registrar or the Center for Adult and Part-time Students to be eligible for any refund. All financial aid must be adjusted before a refund is issued.

Tuition refunds for summer sessions are pro-rated based upon the official withdrawal date and the portion of the session elapsed. Contact the Office of the Bursar for specific refund amounts.

The Bursar's Office processes refunds (overpayments on students' bursar accounts) once a week. Visit to learn more. Refund checks are not available for pick up.


Xavier uses an eBilling process to present students and Authorized Users with an invoice detailing charges for tuition, fees, room and board, in addition to estimated financial aid that has been arranged through the University's Office of Financial Aid as of that date. Be sure to visit and read the Frequently Asked Questions pertaining to billing. eBills are published on the 15th of each month or the last business day prior to the 15th if the 15th falls on a weekend or holiday. Due dates are the first of each month.

Estimated financial aid, as shown on the initial semester billing (July for Fall semester and December for Spring semester), becomes an actual posting during the first full month of the semester. Please call the Office of Financial Aid at 513-745-3142 if you have questions.
