Program Costs

Semester Programs

Xavier-Sponsored Semester Programs and Direct Exchange Programs 

Students participating in a Xavier-approved semester program will pay tuition directly to Xavier, and if applicable the additional level cost. Xavier scholarships, Federal aid, and outside scholarships will apply to semester study abroad experiences.

Xavier study abroad programs are placed into levels. Therefore based on the program, students will be charged the XU tuition rate and the price of the level. Levels may be found on the Cost & Scholarships page of the Xavier application. 

All students will be responsible for room and board costs due to the variability of options and preferences. Depending on program, accommodations may be billed through Xavier or through the program/location directly.
