Graduate and Doctorate
Admissions Requirements

Students are the lifeblood of any university. Through the collaborative efforts of our various offices, we help students make informed choices about continuing their education. We provide a welcoming atmosphere that reflects the best of the Benedictine values of hospitality and a concern for the development of each individual.

Admission to a graduate program is offered to applicants who have a bachelor's degree from an accredited college or university and show high probability of success in the program and the profession. The University admits students year-round, allowing them to begin in any term, including summer. If the student has taken coursework as a graduate student at large at Benedictine University, the grade point average earned will be considered in the decision to admit the student.

It is strongly recommended that you schedule a time to meet with a Graduate Counselor. Graduate Counselors will assist you throughout the admission process.
