Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.54 Average Rating
XULA is a little expensive. I haven't graduated yet but hopefully its a bang for the buck. They do have a lot of pointless things they charge you for.
Current Xavier University Student
Take advantage of the free tutoring centers. There is a biology, chemistry, english, and math tutoring center that offer peer tutoring for most of the day. The library offers a very quiet study atmosphere especially if you are lucky enough to get one of the quiet rooms. Each student is assigned to a specific adviser in your field that you are expected to meet with once a week. They keep you in the right direction. Also, the drill class for chemistry, although annoying sometimes, allows for more instruction time during chem lecture classes.

Not exactly bang for a buck. Maybe if the food they served improved, then maybe.
Kelvin from Metairie, LA
Xavier is definitely worth the money because you can go to no other school and receive a better education. This is true because you are given the chance to succeed. The school works with you no matter any issue you may. Money is never a problem because if you do the work the school will work with you to keep you in school and try to do as much as they can to help you stay in school.
Antoinette from Washington, DC
For a Catholic Private school, Xavier is not as expensive as most private schools. You are not just a number in the classroom, your teachers know you by your name. The teachers are always will to help you get ahead. The compassion that the teachers, faculty and staff is like no other. There are also tutoring labs that are at no extra cost to you and there for your benefit.
Ebonee' from California
YES, it does cost a lot, HOWEVER.....a great education is an investment to your life. They have the best technology available, free of cost, to you in the library. The cafeteria is so nice. You automatically get internet hook up in your room and free phone service. They have teachers who are with you the WHOLE way and more than 80% of Xavier's students graduate. What more is there to say...its a great school and is totally worth it.

Even though Xavier is kind of expensive I truly believe with the amount of money you are paying to attend this institution it is a very good investment. The quality of the education is really beyond what you will receive from other institution.
