A college education is one of the largest financial investments a family will make. We believe that an education from Benedictine University will provide valuable returns throughout a student's lifetime. The Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to helping students and their families make a Benedictine University education affordable. We view the process of financing an education as a partnership. Although the student and his/her family have primary responsibility for meeting college costs, Benedictine University, as well as the federal and state governments have a variety of financial aid programs available to students who need financial assistance.
