Tuition and Fees

Students are the lifeblood of any university. Through the collaborative efforts of our various offices, we help students make informed choices about continuing their education. We provide a welcoming atmosphere that reflects the best of the Benedictine values of hospitality and a concern for the development of each individual.
A Benedictine University education is one of the best financial investments a family will make, providing valuable returns throughout a student's lifetime. Benedictine University and the Office of Financial Aid are dedicated to helping students and their families make a Benedictine education affordable. We offer a variety of financial assistance packages including need-based grants; academic scholarships; federal loans; work-study options; and student employment. We even provide assistance to students who cannot afford textbooks or whose financial circumstances suddenly change.
