Academic Calendar

Important

Saint Xavier University is looking forward to safely welcoming all students, faculty, staff and visitors on campus in fall 2021, as we prepare to return to our normal levels of in-person classes in accordance with local, state and national public health guidelines. Most of our classes will be held in person, as we had done prior to the pandemic. Support services and co-curricular activities will be available in person with virtual opportunities when necessary to promote a safe and inclusive campus experience. As always, SXU will continue to monitor and follow public health guidelines and transition if needed to support the health and safety of the SXU community.
