Benedictine University at Springfield’s admission philosophy is to select students who will perform successfully in the University’s academic programs and actively participate in University life. We offer a rolling admission into all of our traditional undergraduate programs, meaning applications are accepted and admission decisions are made throughout the year without deadline restrictions.

Students who do not meet the above admission requirements are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office to set up an appointment with a Transfer Admissions Representative to discuss the Admissions Committee review process.
COMMUNITY COLLEGE ADVISORS
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 at Springfield 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 Academic Advising office 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 or at (217) 525-1420, ext. 3249. Transfer Credit Evaluators are available for questions Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
