X-Path Program Application

Thank you for your interest in Xavier's X-Path Program. The X-Path Program provides individualized support for students on the autism spectrum. Support and coaching is tailored to the needs of each participating student to promote the development of academic competence, social integration, and self-advocacy. The mission of the X-Path Program is to increase opportunities for success for students who have autism and related disorders. Each student will work directly with the Accommodation and Support Coordinator and will also be assigned to a Peer Coach.

Applications are currently available for the 2023-24 academic year.

To be considered for this optional, fee-based program, applicants must meet the following criteria:

  1. Be admitted to Xavier University through the Office of Undergraduate Admissions

Application deadline for the X-Path program is March 1. Applications received after this date will be considered if spaces are available.
