Parents Guide

It is an exciting time in life when you and your dependent are preparing to make a decision on entering college.  The Xavier family is excited that you both are considering this institution of higher learning. The information on this web site will assist you and your dependent in making the most important decision in becoming a Xavierite!

In general Xavier receives and awards over 40 million dollars in financial aid -- grants, loans, college work study - which equates to approximately 80 per cent of our students on federal financial aid. The University is committed to meeting the demonstrated financial need of undergraduate and graduate students (including Pharmacy).

There are many reasons to choose one college over another and we'd like to think that cost is the least significant factor in your decision to attend. The staff of the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships wants to assist you and your family through the stressful processing of financial aid and budgeting issues. Please view our website as it discloses important information on applying for financial assistance (federal, state, and institutional) and budgeting. Feel free to contact us; we can be reached by e-mail, telephone or in person.

NOTE - Privacy Notice to Parents: Under the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) and University Policy, we are not allowed to release financial aid information to anyone other than the student. In the instance of a dependent student, we can discuss financial aid information with the student's parents or custodial parents only if the student has given written permission through the completion of the FERPA Release Form for the Purpose of Federal Financial Aid.
