Information about the Core Curriculum: https://www.xavier.edu/core/index
is goa made up of different intended majors? or is it people of the same intended majors?
Great question! It's made up of different majors.
You will meet other students in your major through one or more of your required major classes. Generally you'll have at least one major class in your first semester.
What if your child took a language but wants to do a different language? Do they still take a test and if so which one?
We prefer students to take the placement test for the language they took in high school, but they still have the option of choosing a new language at Xavier
When do we choose classes for fall semester?
What is the requirement score to test out? I didn't catch the number
Hi Taylor- Good question. We will cover that process soon!
The placement scores vary depending on the placement and our Modern Languages Dept. will decide which level to start with.
Hi Alex! Typically it's level 202 or higher, but depends on the major
If you already took calculus in high school do youhave to take it again?
Is there a place we can find the results for the math placement test? When I took it it told me results were not available at this time.
Hi Dani! It will depend on your major requirements.
what if you are doing exploratory studies and do not know your major?
High school classes cannot apply toward your Xavier math requirement, however you likely will place at a higher level or have a choice of a different math like statistics based on your major
Hi Ben! It takes some time to show in R2X I would check again. If it does not show up please feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can tell you.
where on road to xavier would we see those results? ^
Hi Gabby! Your academic advisor will work with you to determine the most appropriate courses for you to take even if you don't know your major.
What happens if you have transfer credits for a foreign language? Will they still be counted for foreign language credits?
If we took math or foreign language in a dual enrollment course, do we have to take the placement tests?
If we already took the placement exam how can we view our scores?
We will discuss transfer credit at the end of the slide show
What if I have only taken one year of a foreign language? do I still have to take a placement test for that, or do I go straight to the 101 class?
What score is required to receive AP credit?
AP, IP and CLEP Credit charts: https://www.xavier.edu/undergraduate-admission/ap-ib-and-clep-credit/index
What about Quantitive Reasoning I took in high school
Do admissions prefer our transfer transcripts to be sent in electronically or mailed in?
High school credits do not count toward your Xavier requirement, but if you took the class through a college or university we can award credit for grades of C or better. Our Admission Office will need an official transcript from any college or university you attended during high school.
Hi Sarah! Either one will work
With COVID some colleges allowed students to take a PA grade rather than a letter grade, how do those transfer since they are not actual letter grades?
Will we need to take the language or math exam if we have college transfer credits for those?
Hi Tate! Yes, you will still want to take the placement exams.
If you took courses at another college as pass/fail, we will do a review of the course to determine whether or not you can receive credit.
Are placement tests taken at home?
Hi Clayton! Yes they are all taken online.
How soon should we have our college transcripts sent to Xavier?
once we have our block schedule, how soon thereafter can we get our textbooks?
As soon as you are sure your final grades are posted
Who do I email with specific questions?
Specific questions can be sent to email@example.com.
We will also stick around to answer general questions at the end of this presentation
Anthony- You will receive textbook communication closer to the start of classes.
Do we have to sign up for a specific manresa day?
Is Manresa done with your roommate?
School starts August 16th correct? Manresa would be the week prior...
Manresa is over the weekend prior to the start of classes
When does moving start
Move in is typically right before Manresa. You will receive all the information closer to move-in time
Will I have a different advisor every year, or will I have the same person for all 4 years?
Mollie Labeda (She/Hers)
You may not have to take foreign language,but still take the placement exam. :)
If I am still taking some Dual Credit courses, should I wait to state already completed Dual Credit courses now and update when current courses are complete or wait to upload them at one time?
I would recommend waiting to send until you have everything completed.
thank you so much!
Thank you! Have a great night!
