Benedictine University at Springfield has rolling admissions and thus 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 representative will personally contact you by phone with your admission status. Prospective freshmen should accept the offer of admission and pay the tuition deposit no later than May 1 to secure their spot for the incoming Freshmen class.
Benedictine University at Springfield recommendations for Freshmen Admission:
- 2.5/4.0 GPA
- 21 ACT/980-1010 SAT
- Top 50 percent of graduating class
- Letter of recommendation from high school guidance counselor
If students do not meet the above 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.
The Admissions 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 admissions at 217-525-1420 ext 287.
