Recommended Minimum Admission Standards

Benedictine University at Mesa has rolling admissions. Benedictine does not have a deadline for accepting new applications for the Fall 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, an admission counselor will personally contact you by phone with 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 Admission:
  • 2.5/4.0 GPA
  • Top 50% rank in their graduating class
  • Letter of recommendation from high school guidance counselor, recommended and occasionally required
  • 21 composite combined ACT or 990 SAT (combined reading and math)
  • Extracurricular involvement at school, work or within the community
Personal Statement

If students do not meet the above minimum standards, they are encouraged to submit a minimum one page personal statement. The topic of this personal statement is "What are your academic strengths and how will they help you at Benedictine?" The personal statement is meant to be a reflection of past academic coursework as well as your writing ability. It is necessary that you provide all relevant information about your academic performance and high school experience.

Admission Committee

The Admission Committee meets weekly to review applications for prospective students who do not meet the minimum admission requirements. The Admission Committee looks for well-rounded students who will be successful and contribute to the Benedictine University at Mesa community.

If you have any specific questions about admission requirements, your personal statement or the Admission Committee, please contact your admission counselor.
