In order to accommodate our diverse population, Saint Xavier University is committed to offering courses in a variety of formats and timelines. The following table reflects refund policies based on the start date of the section:

# of Weeks Class Meets 100% Refund within:
14 weeks or more 14 calendar days, counting the start date

4 weeks or less 3 calendar days, counting the start date


Contact the Office of Records and Registration in room A-203 of the Warde Academic Center or call 773-298-3501 for information on specific courses.

Students who register for a class are responsible for tuition unless they officially withdraw either in the Office of Records and Registration or through Self-Service on mySXU. Fees are not refundable. Notifying the instructor or ceasing to attend the class does not constitute an authorized withdrawal. An additional fee will be charged for dropped courses resulting from non attendance.

A class may be dropped without academic penalty until the 3/4 point of the semester or term. (Dates to be determined and published each semester by the Office of Records and Registration.) A grade of W will appear on the record for any class dropped after the official refund date.
