Funding Resources - Financial Aid
Drawing on a Jesuit Catholic educational model 400 years in the making, our faculty members engage each student as an individual. The result is an education that’s as encouraging as it is challenging, enriching and demanding.
Xavier offers need-based graduate grants for students in specific programs. Grants typically range from $180 to $480 per semester. In order to apply for a graduate grant, students must be fully admitted and file the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) each year by Xavier's priority deadline of Feb.15.
The University participates in the William D. Ford Federal Direct Loan Program, in which borrowers obtain federal loan funds directly from the U.S. Department of Education. Loans are borrowed money and must be repaid by the student.
Graduate assistantship (GA) positions are available in many offices and departments on campus and provide an opportunity to gain valuable professional experience.
Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)
There's no income cut-off to qualify for federal student aid, and many factors besides income are considered. File the FAFSA as soon as possible after January 1 at fafsa.gov. Students whose FAFSA is received by Feb. 15 receive priority aid consideration. Be sure to list Xavier's federal school code: 003144.
