Benedictine University reviews applications holistically. All required documents must be submitted in order for an applicant’s file to be considered complete and for an admission review.
If students do not meet minimum admission requirements, they are encouraged to submit a minimum one-page personal statement. The topic of this personal statement is "What are your academic strengths and how will they help you at Benedictine?". The personal statement is meant to be a reflection of past academic coursework as well as your writing ability. It is necessary that you provide all relevant information about your academic performance and high school experience.
The Admission Committee meets weekly to review applications for prospective students who do not meet the minimum admission requirements. The Admission Committee looks for well-rounded students who will be successful and contribute to the Benedictine University community.
If you have any specific questions about admission requirements, your personal statement or the Admission Committee, please contact your Admissions counselor.
