Accommodation Services

Benedictine University is dedicated to creating an accessible environment through reasonable and appropriate accommodations for students with disabilities. Students with a disability are encouraged to seek assistance by contacting the Academic Support Center at accommodations@ben.edu or 630-829-6041.

Special accommodation services are available for students with disabilities on a case-by-case basis, provided that documentation from a properly licensed clinician supports the accommodation. Students eligible under the Americans with Disabilities Act (1990) and/or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act (1973), whose disability interferes with a major life activity, are urged to self-identify so that the process for receiving assistance can begin as early as possible.

Commonly granted accommodations include the following:

  • Extended time for testing in a quiet test environment.
  • Designated note taker in class.
  • Modified or enlarged classroom/reading materials.
  • Books in alternate formats.
  • Preferential classroom seating.

If you are in need of special academic or housing accommodations, please contact the Academic Support Center at (630) 829-6041 to begin the process of submitting proper documentation for equal access to educational and campus services. Please review the POLICY TO REQUEST ACCOMMODATION FORM prior to your meeting with your case manager.

View Benedictine University's Disability Accommodations Policy (Sept. 2020).

You can also consult the Student Accommodations Handbook (Jan. 2021) for more information.


Health Services

Required Immunizations/Vaccines

The Measles vaccine (MMR) is the only required vaccination at Benedictine. Before a student can register for their second term, they are required to document that they've had two measles vaccinations (one of which must be dated after 1979), or a lab test showing proof of immunity to the measles (rubeola).

Students must submit proof of MMR Immunization before they can register for their second term of classes.  A Student will see a "MMR Immunization Hold" on their MyBenU account until the measles information is received and verified.

Local Out-patient Care

Adelante Healthcare in Mesa offers everything a student needs to get healthy - and stay that way all under one roof! One easy step takes care of family internal medicine, pediatrics, women's health with ob/gyn care, dental and an in-house lab and pharmacy. The Office of Student Life continues to work with local medical services to better understand student health needs as our population expands in the Downtown Mesa Campus Corridor. You can find more information about Adelante here.

Local Emergency Services

Banner Desert Medical Center(BDMC) is most closely located to our campus and offers a full spectrum of health services.

Health Insurance Coverage

Students are encouraged to carry health insurance through a Parent or Guardian.
