Program Costs

Semester Programs

Xavier-Sponsored Semester Programs, Direct Exchange Programs, and XU Semester in Peru 

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.

All students will be responsible for room and board costs due to the variability of options and preferences.

Faculty-led and Short-term Programs

Students participating in a Xavier faculty-led program will pay all program fees directly to Xavier. If eligible, federal financial aid is sometimes portable. Because these programs are often summer courses, students must check with XU Office of Student Financial Services for specific information and eligibility. Institutional aid is not portable. CISI international insurance is included.

Students participating in a short-term program through an approved provider will pay all program fees directly to the provider. If eligible, federal financial aid is sometimes portable. If the program does not include adequate international insurance, students are required to purchase Xavier's insurance for international activity (CISI cost put on XU Bursar bill).
