Each program has its own process to evaluate applications for evidence an applicant will be successful. There are no numerical formulas or absolute score/GPA used when evaluating applications. All of the information submitted is carefully considered to get a clear picture of the applicant as a whole. Grades from past college/university work, test score(s) and letters of recommendation and/or personal statements where required are all taken into consideration.

Send official transcript(s) directly from the college/university for all previous undergraduate and graduate course work (one per institution):

对于一些项目, a maximum of 6 semester hours (or the equivalent) of graduate work completed at another accredited graduate school prior to initial admission to 泽维尔大学 may be transferred with the permission of the program director and the dean. Coursework that is part of a previously earned graduate degree is not accepted for transfer credit. 只有“A”或“B”的分数(3.00或更高)是可转让的. Decisions regarding transfer credit are made at the time of admission to degree-seeking status.

对于一些项目, you may register for a class on the day it begins. 然而, we recommend registering as early as possible to reduce the chances of your class being full. Registration for the fall semester and summer sessions begins in late March, and registration for spring begins in late November. If it is your first class at Xavier, you may complete an application for non-degree graduate status and register on the same day.

Xavier welcomes students from outside the United States to enroll in its online programs. 然而, some countries do not formally recognize foreign online degrees. This may have implications for enrolling in subsequent degree programs or for securing employment requiring these credentials. It is students’ responsibility to determine whether the online degree will be recognized in their country of residence or in any country in which they plan to work. 另外, students should inquire in their country of residence how the collection of student data may be used and whether they will be subject to additional withholding taxes in addition to the cost of tuition.

Although application processes vary depending upon your program of choice. In general, the following documents are required to complete an application at 泽维尔大学:

  • All international students are strongly encouraged to submit an official third-party course-by-course evaluation of their high school and/or college transcripts from an international credential evaluation service accredited by the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services.
  • International students must pass the TOEFL exam if English is your second language.
  • International students may have additional application requirements. 连接 国际招生办公室 欲了解更多信息.
