Graduate students at Benedictine can earn two free classes

September 10, 2014

Lisle, Illinois ~ Benedictine University continues to find unique ways to alleviate some of the barriers adult students face when seeking a graduate degree.

To further encourage busy adult students to progress through their studies and help them afford the cost of an advanced graduate degree, Benedictine University is offering degree-seeking students in select programs the opportunity to earn a scholarship that will allow them to receive their last two classes free of charge.

To be eligible for the scholarship, students must register by September 29 for the Fall 2014 Quarter or by January 5 for the Winter 2015 Quarter in one of the following programs:

•  Master of Business Administration
•  Master of Public Health
•  Master of Science in Accountancy
•  Master of Science in Business Analytics
•  Master of Science in Management Information Systems
•  Master of Science in Management and Organizational Behavior
•  Master of Science in Taxation

This scholarship cannot be combined with any other scholarships or tuition discounts. Students will receive the scholarship after they complete and pay for their first 14 classes or a minimum 56 quarter credit hours.

Benedictine University promises its students an affordable and attainable education infused with the Benedictine values that creates better learners, leaders and world citizens. Keeping that promise is why Benedictine has been named the fastest-growing nonprofit private doctoral institution in the country by The Chronicle of Higher Education.

Benedictine’s flexible graduate programs are designed for adults with multiple time commitments. For more information about the scholarship and Benedictine’s graduate programs, visit or contact the Office of Admissions at or (630) 829-6300.
