All tuition and fees are due to Benedictine University at the start of each course. Full payment for flat rate tuition programs is required at the start of the learning team program and is non-refundable. Benedictine University reserves the right to change tuition, fees, courses and sequencing of courses without notice. Please note that fees are non-refundable.

All tuition remissions and consortium students must pay applicable fees such as activity, graduation, health, technology and lab fees. All fees are subject to change without further notice.

Acceptable forms of payment include: Cash, Check, Money Order, American Express, Mastercard, Visa or Discover.

Benedictine University has partnered with Higher One to provide interest-free monthly payment options through the Tuition Payment Plan. Students may create budgets to manage their tuition costs by program, per class or per term.

Students utilizing tuition remission can arrange, with Higher One's Tuition Payment Plan, a single tuition payment due at the end of the term (plus a grace period) with proper tuition assistance documentation from their employer. (Note: the tuition payment plan does not apply to flat rate programs.)
