As parents, we all want the best for our children. When they are away at college and need additional support, it is comforting to know Student Life offers a variety of services to include counseling. The Counseling Center provides students assistance with understanding challenges they encounter. During a 50-minute counseling session, a University counselor will guide your student toward reflection and building decision-making skills. Skills learned will assist students with stress, test-anxiety, homesickness, time-management, or sometimes just to vent. There is no cost for counseling and the student must make an appointment.
The Counseling Center hours are Monday – Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and is located on the main level of the Krasa Student Center in Room 112. To make an appointment with a counselor, please call (630) 829-1800.
Benedictine University offers rolling admissions and does not have a deadline for accepting new applications for the Fall 2018 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, you will receive a letter in the mail and a call from your admissions counselor regarding 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 freshman class.
Requirements for Freshmen Admission include:
Students can apply for the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) starting October 1, 2017. The FAFSA can be filed for free online at www.fafsa.gov. Benedictine’s school code is 001767. We encourage students to apply as soon as possible.
Once a student is admitted to Benedictine they should complete the following steps.
Halls close during some holiday breaks. We wanted to make you aware of upcoming closures and important details related to closures.
We ask that you please plan ahead with your students and pick them up before halls are officially closed. When halls are closed, residents are not allowed in the building and ID access will be turned off. Students will be required to wait for rides in the Krasa Center after 6:00 p.m.
Food service stops at lunch the day of hall closures and reopens for dinner the night of openings.
Founders’ Woods does not close during holiday break times. Residents there are welcome to stay.
Coaches will work with athletic teams allowed to stay over portions of the breaks to sign stay agreements.
Students needing to stay over breaks because of long travel distances can work with the office of Residence Life to sign a stay agreement but a fee may be associated. No guests are allowed for students staying over breaks.
Students are welcome to leave the majority of the items in their room over break. They should bring what they will need for break home and any valuables.
Holiday break periods provide our Facilities Management team opportunities to perform routine maintenance work, so rooms may be accessed during those periods of time. Scheduled maintenance work will be communicated to residents wherever possible in advance.
It is already time for students to register for spring classes! Registration begins on Monday, November 6, and each student is assigned a registration date based on the number of credit hours he or she has completed. It is important that students take care of any holds they may have on their student account, as any hold will prevent spring registration from occurring. Please see below for the different types of holds students encounter, and where students can go for assistance:
Please note that students must fill out a Release of Confidential Information Form for any academic or financial information to be disclosed to parents.
Our advising staff is always available to assist students with any questions or concerns that students may have. Please don’t hesitate to visit www.ben.edu/advising or contact us at (630) 829-1120 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
