Students can have many concerns regarding their spot at Benedictine University while they are studying abroad. This page will assist you with any Benedictine benefits you have and maintaining them while you are abroad.
In order to reserve on-campus housing at Benedictine while you are studying abroad you need to contact Residence Life's Assistant Director, Karl Constant (firstname.lastname@example.org) you can also visit their website. If you are abroad during fall and/or winter terms, Residence Life will reserve a room for you (although it may not be the same room or roommates you previously had) as long as you leave your security deposit with them. If you cancel your housing contract and request that your security deposit be returned, you will not have space saved for your next term.
This is a rather complicated procedure. Before departure, you must discuss with your academic advisor what courses you should take during the semester after your return to the U.S. While, in most cases, the course schedules have not been published yet, your advisor should have an idea of what courses will be offered in your department, and should also be able to give you an idea of what types of courses you should take next semester.
A notice will be sent form the
International Programs and Services Office when schedules are published. Decide what courses you want to take
and work with your academic adviser to enroll in classes. You can access MyBenU via BenUConnect here. No confirmation of courses will be sent to you
Whether you are studying abroad during the fall, spring, or the entire academic year, if you are planning to graduate the May or December after your study abroad program you should complete the graduation application. You can visit BenU's commencement website to learn more about the process.
