Admissions Process

It is strongly recommended that you schedule a time to meet with a Transfer Counselor. Transfer Counselors will assist you throughout the transfer admission process, in addition to providing you with an unofficial evaluation of your current and future courses.

    1. Apply online through Benedictine
    2. Apply online using the Common Application
    3. Download a hard copy of the Undergraduate Application
    4. Call (602) 888-5500 and we will mail an application to you.

    Benedictine University at Mesa

    225 E. Main Street
    Mesa, AZ 85201
  3. Your admission counselor may request additional materials if you did not meet the minimum admission requirements. You may be asked to submit:
    1. A personal statement
    2. Seventh semester transcripts

  4. Once your completed application has been received and reviewed, an admission counselor will personally contact you by phone with your admission status.

Recommended Minimum Admission Standards

Benedictine University has rolling admissions. Benedictine University 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.

Requirements for Admission:
  • Minimum of 20 transferable semester hours (If a student has fewer than 20 semester hours of transfer credit, freshman requirements apply).
  • 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
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, high school, and/or college 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.
