Veterans Admission Process
The Office of Admission is committed to assisting veterans through the application and admission process. Saint Xavier University operates on rolling admission (no deadlines except for nursing applicants) for undergraduate programs for the spring (January), fall (August) and summer (June) semesters. Deadlines and start terms for graduate students vary per academic program.
For details regarding undergraduate admission, please contact John Kelly, veteran admission counselor, at 773-298-3060 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Undergraduate Veteran Student Express Application Process
- Apply online to Saint Xavier University. There is no application fee when you apply online.
- As part of our express application process, the essay requirement is waived for veteran students for all majors except nursing. Individuals applying to nursing must submit a one-page essay describing their reasons for pursuing nursing. To receive the essay waiver, please enter: "United States Veteran" in the essay section of the application.
- Submit transcripts for ALL colleges attended.
- Submit military transcripts. Veterans of the Army, Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard can request the new Joint Transcript online. Veterans of the Air Force should request their transcript through the Community College of the Air Force. The VA requires the submission of military transcripts as part of the application process.
- Veteran applicants are not required to submit standardized test scores such as ACT or SAT for admission.
- If you are using your benefits at another institution, you will also need to complete the Request for Change of Program or Place of Training (Form 22-1995), which can be found on the GI Bill website.
For information regarding Veteran education benefits and the Yellow Ribbon Program, visit the GI Bill website. From here, veterans can apply for benefits by completing the Veterans Online Application (VONAPP).
