Admissions Process for Graduate Applicants

Admission to a graduate program is offered to applicants who have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and show high probability of success in the program and the profession. The University admits students year-round, allowing them to begin in any term, including summer. If the student has taken coursework as a graduate student at large at Benedictine University, the grade point average earned will be considered in the decision to admit the student.
