It is strongly recommended that you schedule a time to meet with a Transfer Counselor. Transfer Counselors will assist you throughout the transfer admission process, in addition to providing you with an unofficial evaluation of your current and future courses.
Benedictine University's admissions philosophy is to select students who will perform successfully in the University's academic programs and actively participate in University life. We offer a rolling admission into all of our traditional undergraduate programs, meaning applications are accepted and admission decisions are made throughout the year without deadline restrictions.
Students who do not meet the admission requirements are encouraged to contact the Enrollment Center to set up an appointment with one of our Transfer Counselors to discuss the Admission Committee review process.
Students transferring into Benedictine University's traditional undergraduate programs must have:
To establish English proficiency, international students may submit either ACT, SAT, TOEFL, or IELTS test scores.
Apply during your office interview or online. Use application fee-waiver code BENUOI. Once you have applied and have sent your official transcripts your transfer counselor will contact you regarding your admission decision.
Once you are admitted to Benedictine University you will receive a phone call and email from your transfer admissions counselor. A transfer acceptance packet will also arrive to you in the mail with important information about BenU.
Upon acceptance your file will be sent to our Transfer Credit Evaluators (TCE) for an official transfer evaluation. Transfer evaluations can take one to three weeks to be completed based on your credits. The evaluators may ask you for additional information such as course syllabi to make determinations. Once your transfer evaluation is completed you will receive a copy via the mail.
If you qualify for a transfer scholarship (based on cumulative GPA) you will be notified by your transfer counselor once your transfer credit evaluation is completed. A copy of your award letter will be sent to you via the mail.
If you have your 2016-2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) – www.FAFSA.gov – on record with BenU, our Office of Financial Aid will work on an award letter which you will receive via the mail. Financial Aid may request additional information from you such as tax information, proof of US citizenship, etc. BenU's FAFSA Code: 001767
Before you can officially accept your admissions offer and register for classes you will need to pay a $100 tuition deposit (refundable up to December 1) and take an online Math Placement Test if you have not already completed a math course. Once these steps are completed your file will be sent to our Advising Center.
Upon paying your tuition and depost and completing the mathematics placement test (if required) your file will be send to our Advising Center. From there your academic advisor will call you to set up your one-on-one appointment to select your first semester of classes.
