Community College Advisors

Students are the lifeblood of any university. Through the collaborative efforts of our various offices, we help students make informed choices about continuing their education. We provide a welcoming atmosphere that reflects the best of the Benedictine values of hospitality and a concern for the development of each individual.
 We understand that when it comes to advising transfer students, community college advisors have many different roles to fill and many students to advise. Below you will find a page dedicated to providing quick links to the information you and your students need.

Our Transfer Admission Counselors are also happy to meet with potential transfer students to provide an unofficial evaluation of previous coursework and advice on course selection. Major checklists specific to a student’s intended major provide guidance on course selection prior to transfer.

Transfer students interested in applying can find information about the process.

In an effort to help facilitate transfer from area community colleges, Benedictine University has created Transfer Guides where courses are listed with Benedictine University course equivalents. Courses from colleges with whom we do not have transfer guides are evaluated based on criteria set forth by the Transfer Credit Policy.

The Office of Transfer Credit Evaluation strives to maintain accuracy, consistency and integrity during every transfer credit evaluation, and makes every effort to research the courses completed.

If you have questions regarding the transferability or equivalency of coursework completed at your college, please contact us directly at the numbers below. Transfer Credit Evaluators are available for questions Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
