Summer Courses at Xavier

Visiting Students

A guest/visiting student is a student who is currently or will be attending another university and wishes to take Summer Session classes at Xavier to transfer to his or her home institution, should take the following steps:

    1. Apply as a non-degree student through the Admission Office
    2. Submit an application online.
    3. Register for Summer Sessions classes at Xavier either in person, by fax, email or mail-in.
    4. It is recommended that students have permission from their home institution verifying that the credit will transfer before they register at Xavier.
    5. You must also complete a Request for Transcript form and submit it along with the appropriate fee to the Office of the Registrar at the end of the session. The Office of the Registrar will forward an official copy of your transcripts to your home institution once the grade has been posted.

REGISTRATION POLICY:  Registration for summer session is final. Students who register for courses and fail to appear, unless officially withdrawn in accordance with the regulations regarding withdrawals, will receive a vanished failing (VF) grade for their courses and will be charged the regular summer session fees. Withdrawals must be made in writing and submitted to the office through which the registration was processed. Grades of "W" will be recorded for all classes dropped after the 100% refund date.
