Saint Xavier University has a long history of service to transfer students. In fact, Saint Xavier is among the top 10 private, non-profit, destination colleges for transfers in the state of Illinois. We value the time and commitment you've invested in your college studies thus far, and we know that you seek a transfer partner that provides generous transfer credit, a quality educational experience, and an affordable cost. Saint Xavier offers transfer merit scholarships for full-time transfer students ranging from $10,000 to $17,000 per academic year and a competitive, reduced tuition rate for students who attend SXU part-time.
Transferring to complete your undergraduate degree can be intimidating, but here at Saint Xavier we've worked to simplify the process. At Transfer Day, take advantage of transfer student services, including:
- On-the-spot application review
- Admission decision and merit scholarship determination
- Transfer credit evaluation and appointment with an academic advisor
- Opportunity to register for the summer or fall semester classes
- Creation of a financial aid award letter and conversation with a financial aid counselor
