Admitted Undergraduate Degree Completion Students
Once you have been admitted to the Saint Xavier University Orland Park campus, there are a few things you should do right away:
In order for you to find the true cost of an SXU education, you should file for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to see what federal, state and institutional financial aid you may qualify for. If you have already filed your FAFSA, simply login and add SXU's school code (001768) so that we can receive your results.
Schedule an advising appointment with our Student Services Coordinator by calling 708-802-6203. You will meet one-on-one to go over how your classes transfer, what classes are left to complete your degree and to register for the classes you need!*
*The advisor for degree completion students at Orland Park is located at the campus and will work with each student to develop individual academic plans that facilitate degree completion, professional advancement and personal development. The advisor will also work with the student to ensure completion of the above steps.
Students are advised to submit a $100 tuition deposit to guarantee their spot in their courses for the upcoming semester. This deposit will go toward your tuition and guarantees your admission to SXU.
If you are currently attending another school, please submit your final transcripts electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. All transcripts must be received before you begin classes at SXU.
All incoming undergraduate students are required to submit a compliant Certificate of Immunity. For a complete description of what is needed, please visit our Student Immunization Requirements page, where you can download the necessary form.
