Tuition & Fees

Financial Clearance

Every Saint Xavier University student is required to receive financial clearance each semester. Financial clearance is the recognition that you have made appropriate arrangements to pay each semester's charges. If you fail to obtain financial clearance, you will be unable to obtain a valid ID card or move into the residence hall. In addition, students who do not obtain financial clearance before the end of the first week of classes each term will be assessed a $100 late clearance fee.

Ways to Obtain Financial Clearance

You will receive financial clearance when any of the following occur:

  1. Your total financial aid (minus any loan processing fees) meets or exceeds your charges for the semester. (Financial aid includes approved federal plus or alternative loans.)
  2. You are current with Nelnet.
  3. You pay your semester's charges in full when you receive your initial statement.

Checking Your Financial Clearance Status

You can now check to see if you have financial clearance by logging onto mySXU and going to Self-Service.
