Requirements

Benedictine University has rolling admissions. Benedictine University does not have a deadline for accepting new applications for the Fall semester. We encourage traditional undergraduate students to apply within their first semester of their senior year of high school. The application review process takes approximately one week. Once your completed application has been received and reviewed, an admission counselor will personally contact you by phone with your admission status.

Benedictine University requirements for Admission:

  • Minimum of 20 transferable semester hours (If a student has fewer than 20 semester hours of transfer credit, freshman requirements apply).
  • Cumulative grade point average of 2.0 on a 4.0 scale or better from all colleges and universities previously attended.
  • No previous academic probation or academic dismissal

Personal Statement

If students do not meet the above minimum 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.

Admission Committee

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 admission counselor.

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.
