Refund and Withdrawal Information

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:

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

Students who register for a class are responsible for tuition unless they officially drop their course either in the Office of Records and Registration or through Self-Service on mySXU according to the refund schedule listed below. Fees are not refundable. Notifying the instructor or ceasing to attend the class does not constitute an authorized withdrawal.

A student may withdraw from a course 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.) A grade of W will appear on the record for any class dropped after the official refund date. For students using U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs educational benefits, if your withdrawal results in an overpayment, you will need to work with the Office of Student Accounts/Office of Financial Aid to pay any outstanding balance for tuition and fees.
