  2. Have been fiscally cleared via Student Accounts (i.e., you have satisfied the minimum tuition/fee payment and/or clearance via a Student Account representative/cashier) - even if you have a zero balance because of Financial Aid,

AND

3. Present to a Campus Card Office representative a positive government photo identification card (e.g., driver’s license, state identification card, military ID,passport)
   

Continuing/Returning Students

ID System Maintenance Fee/Student Accounts versus ID Replacement Fee/Campus Card Office

Note:  The $10.00 ID fee that a student pays to a Student Account representative (e.g., University Cashier) every semester/session during which he/she is enrolled in classes at Xavier is an ID system maintenance fee and is separate  from the Replacement ID Card $10.00 nonrefundable cash fee which is paid in the Campus Card Office, University Center, Room 122.   The first ID that a student receives is actually issued free of charge during the first semester/session in which he/she enrolls at Xavier.
