Undergraduate Admission

Applying for Financial Aid

  1. First, students must be accepted for admission. To learn more about admission or to apply, visit Undergraduate Admissions.
  2. Complete the 2024-2025 FAFSA form as soon as December 2023; Xavier University's Federal School Code for the FAFSA form is 003144. Our FAFSA tips page provides some helpful information for completing the form.
  3. Federal Student Aid (FSA) will send an email to the student in mid-March to indicate that the FAFSA form has been processed and that the FAFSA Submission Summary is available. Review the FAFSA Submission Summary to ensure the data reported on your form is correct. Make corrections, if necessary.
  4. If the FAFSA Submission Summary indicates that you are selected for a process called verification, the Office of Student Financial Services will contact you to request the necessary documentation.
  5. The Office of Student Financial Services will review the FAFSA results and determine the student's financial aid eligibility.

How soon will I know what my financial aid package is?

The Office of Student Financial Services expects to begin preparing financial aid notifications by the beginning of April for new students who have submitted a 2024-2025 FAFSA. Aid offers for new students will be available for review on Road to Xavier.
