Summer Programs

Social Policy and Guidelines

Students participating in the summer science programs sponsored by Xavier University are expected to follow all the university policies and conduct codes while on campus and at off campus sponsored Xavier events.

Social Policy & Guidelines

If you enroll in Xavier's summer programs, you must be capable of assuming responsibility for your behavior and willing to comply with all regulations designed to protect the well-being, health and safety of all participants and staff.

You are required to attend all classes, workshops and events planned as part of the summer programs; residential students must comply with sign-out procedures and observe curfews.

In keeping with university's policy and legal restrictions, smoking and the use of drugs and alcohol are strictly prohibited.

Unacceptable student conduct will result in disciplinary action and/or dismissal. Details of the social policy are sent to each admitted applicant.

Safety & Security

Your safety is one of our highest priorities. When you arrive on campus, you will have an orientation to New Orleans "Street Smart Student" with a member of our University Police Staff to make you knowledgeable of ways to be alert and aware of yourself, others and your surroundings. The residence halls are monitored by 24-hour desk attendant staff and everyone is required to show identification and sign in in order to enter. Additionally, University Police regular monitors the campus and surrounding neighborhood.

You also play a role in assuring your own safety by complying with the program's guidelines. Following the expectations of the group leaders, curfew and sign-in/sign-out procedures are taken very seriously by the program's director and university's administrators; violating these policies will result in disciplinary action and/or dismissal.

Rules Regarding Visitors:

  • Students in summer programs may NOT have visitors on campus except in an emergency.
  • In case of an emergency, the person wishing to contact a participant (his/her parent, guardian, or similar responsible adult) should contact the program coordinator as listed in your parent information packet.
