Benedictine University's admissions 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 transferring into Benedictine University's traditional undergraduate programs must have:

  • A minimum of 20 transferable semester hours (If a student has fewer than 20 semester hours of transfer credit, freshman requirements apply)
  • A 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

Students who do not meet the above admission requirements are encouraged to contact the Enrollment Center to set up an appointment with one of our Transfer Counselors to discuss the Admission Committee review process.
