The scholarship applies to graduate degree-seeking students for both part-time and full-time enrollment, with a minimum of 6 credit-hours per semester.
The Loyal Musketeer Scholarship is a new scholarship beginning Fall 2022 exclusively for Xavier University alumni.

Students who are currently enrolled in a program that began before January 2022 are not eligible for this scholarship.

All program admission requirements must be met and adhered to. Check with each program for good academic standing requirements.
The scholarship awards an amount equal to 25% of the posted per credit hour tuition rate for the graduate program. For example, a program charging a tuition of $875 per credit hour would be credited with a scholarship amount of $218.75 per credit hour resulting in a net tuition rate of $656.25 per credit hour for qualifying students.
