Visiting Students 

Some Xavier faculty-led programs welcome non-Xavier students to enroll in our study abroad programs. Qualified applicants seeking a degree from an other college or university are eligible to apply. To apply as a visiting student to a faculty-led program, go to the faculty-led program's application page, click the "Apply Now" button, follow the prompts to login as a visiting student, then complete the application. 

As part of the application, you will need to complete the Non-Xavier Student Home Institution Study Abroad Approval form through your home institution's study abroad office. Xavier recommends working with your study abroad office before beginning our application.
