Payment Options

Payments made by personal check, business check or online by ACH will be subject to a 3 business day hold to allow for clearance of funds. This hold will not be lifted until 3 business days have passed, regardless of your scheduled registration date. Any holds on your account must be satisfied before registration for the upcoming term will be allowed.

If you have questions regarding an outstanding balance or a financial hold on your account, please contact the Business Office at (630) 829-6503.

Tuition and fees are incurred at the time of registration. For ALL programs payment of tuition, fees and housing charges is due seven (7) calendar days after the first day of class unless the balance is covered by financial aid or set up on a payment plan.

Tuition is due by the tuition due date whether or not a bill has been received. Students can always view their most up-to-date account information at http://www.ben.edu/MyBenU.

2) Monthly Payment Plans

Benedictine University provides interest-free monthly payment options through MyBenU (administered by TouchNet). Students may set-up plans to manage their out-of-pocket tuition costs annually or per term, depending on their program. Students may enroll online through MyBenU or make a parent/guardian an authorized user to set up a payment plan. Click here for instructions on how to enroll in a payment plan.

Please note that you will continue to receive monthly account statements from Benedictine University while enrolled in a payment plan until your student account balance is paid in full. Any late payments may result in a late fee and financial hold.

  • Annual budgets (Fall and Spring Combined Tuition) Traditional Semester students only - For a fee of $40, students can make monthly payments toward their full-year's tuition balance (June - May). To determine your budget, double your out-of-pocket cost for fall (tuition and fees – financial aid). Please note you may need to adjust your budget after spring, and tuition for the spring semester must be paid in full with the May 1 payment.
  • Single Term budgets (Quarter/Semester)- All Campuses - For a fee of $25, students can make monthly payments toward their tuition balance for a single term. The budget will automatically calculate based on your account balance. The budget will update when any changes are made to your account. Balances must be paid in full prior to the next quarter/semester registration or start date.
3) Employer Tuition Reimbursement

For a $25 fee per session, students can enroll in a single tuition payment due at the end of the term/session (plus approximately a month grace period). Documentation of your approval in your employer's tuition assistance plan must be submitted to the Business Office of Benedictine University prior to enrolling in this plan. An updated copy of your eligibility must be submitted annually. Students may fax this documentation to the Business Office at (630) 829-6501 or email it to sar@ben.edu. After submitting the documentation, you will receive notification from the Business Office that you are eligible to enroll in the payment plan. Please note that tuition is due in full according to the deferred due date regardless of when individual employers reimburse their employees.

4) Third Party Payment Authorization/Direct Company Billing

The Business Office will bill a third party (an organization, business or agency) for any and all charges on a student's account, if a valid authorization from the third party sponsor is received on or before the beginning of the course/term. Benedictine will send an invoice to the third party after the add/drop period. Payment is due upon receipt of the invoice and is not contingent upon the student successfully completing the course. All authorized and non authorized charges not paid for by the third party will be the responsibility of the student.

 ***Failure to meet options by payment deadline will result in a late payment fee of $100 and a financial hold placed on the student's account***

Returned Checks

Payment of tuition or fees with a check or ACH that is subsequently returned from the bank unpaid will result in a returned check fee posted to your student account. A student may not satisfy a returned check obligation with a personal check.
