  1. Have registered for classes for the current semester/session,
  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, and 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.

LIBRARY

As the center of intellectual life, Xavier's Library provides access to materials that are the building blocks of knowledge, and services that support the educational needs of the university.
The library offers access to a constantly expanding collection of more than a half-million electronic resources accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year through our website. This comes along with approximately 100,000 physical materials in the form of books, journals, audiovisual resources and more. The library's recently launched digital repository offers students the chance to let the world see their best work and add it to the university's knowledge base, all while keeping their intellectual property protected.

Located inside the library building is the Xavier University Archives and Special Collections, home to thousands of historical university records; cultural artifacts related to African-American, Louisiana, Gulf Coast-region and U.S. Roman Catholic history and culture; and the creative writing of the modern Deep South. Also under the care of the archives is the library's collection of thousands of rare books. Every day, access to these resources becomes easier as the library works to digitize historic records for addition to its rapidly expanding digital library.

The Library offers a full range of information services, including chat and email assistance, as well as in-person consultations in both one-on-one and classroom settings. The library is committed to offering students and faculty forward-thinking and sustainable information- and resource-management tools. Each librarian works closely with the university's academic departments to enhance resources in all areas.
