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

3.97 Average Rating
Although Xavier is a great school, it is also an expensive school. It may be said that if you have low income and financial aid then you may not be able to attend this school. I am the first generation to attend school in my family. I come from a single parent home and have a 17 year old baby sister who will be expecting soon. I always had a dream to become a doctor and attend college with no doubt in my mind that it would be impossible. My first semester of college was a struggle for my mother and myself with the tuition; however, we made it through. Xavier University may be expensive but it is worth the struggle in the long run. I pray everyday that God helps my mother and myself have the money to pay for my schooling at Xavier University. With God and my mother on my side, I will make this tuition pay work. Because one has low income or little financial aid coming in, do not have any doubt that you cannot attend here because with hard work it is possible.
Rachel from Fort Wayne, IN
I love Xavier. There is definitely room for growth and change, but taht is true with any school. I love the atmosphere of campus and the faculty truly care about the students. The small class sizes enable the professors to know students by not just their names but their personalities as well. At the same time, it is for the student to take the initiative to seek out the professor.
Lauren from Carmel, IN
Xavier is pretty expensive. Sometimes, you will get professors that do not fulfill your expectations based on what you are paying. Nevertheless, I would not go anywhere else, even for free.
Katrina from Westerville, OH
Sure it's a little pricey, but what good school isn't. This school offers alot of computer rentals and printing for free, along with tutoring for just about any class you could think of.
Katja from Rosharon , TX
The million dollar question, or should I say the roughly $37,820 question. You definitely get all that you pay for through superb living quarters, an infinite amount of campus activities and the top of the line degree.
Paige
Quite expensive, but definitely worth it. It is a very respectable school, with a great reputation and wonderful education and career opportunities.
Emily from Newport, KY
Xavier is a little pricey, but so worth it! The new dorms are AMAZING and the new buildings are such great learning and studying environments. For finals week, I practically lived in the new buildings. Also, there is so much stuff you can use for free while at school. Of course this comes out of your tuition money, but so worth it! All of the free printing, free book use, free internet use, it is all worth the money!
Kiersten from Fayetteville, GA
Xavier is very pricey, but you really are getting what you are paying for. When you go out in the real world and apply for jobs you're going to get a job over other people simply for the fact that you have a degree from Xavier. It might sound mean to others, who are going to community colleges or something of the sort, but it's the reality of the situation. It'll definitely benefit you in the future if you pick Xavier, and want a good job.
Megan from Taylor Mill, KY
Xavier is a bit pricey, but it is worth it. The education you will receive is fantastic. If you read about past alums, you'll see that many people who have graduated from Xavier have great jobs. Xavier offers tutoring if you need a little extra help. They have math and writing labs if you need help with your math class or with writing a paper.
Catie from Newport, KY
Although it may not seem that it is worth it, but in reality it is. Xavier has taught me a lot of different things. The education you are paying for is worth it in the long run because Xavier has this way of making you do your best. Every grade you get you have to earn it.
