In conjunction with the University, the Office of Financial Aid will be closed from Friday, December 23rd through Monday, January 1st.  We will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, January 2nd.


Be sure to file your 17-18 FAFSA!

We are encouraging all students to file a 2017-2018 FAFSA as soon as possible beginning October 1st, 2016!

The FAFSA can be filed for free online at www.fafsa.gov.  Use BenU's school code of 001767 to make sure we receive your application.

A college education is one of the largest financial investments a family will make. We believe that an education from Benedictine University will provide valuable returns throughout a student's lifetime. The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping students and their families make a Benedictine University education affordable. We view the process of financing an education as a partnership. Although the student and his/her family have primary responsibility for meeting college costs, Benedictine University, as well as the federal and state governments have a variety of financial aid programs available to students who need financial assistance.

We hope this Web site will help families understand the financial aid process. If you don't find the information you're looking for, please feel free to contact one of our staff. Financial aid counselors are available by telephone, e-mail or in person (no appointment necessary).
