Selecting a university abroad is a very important decision and requires that you gather all the information that you can. No matter what the reason you have chosen to study in the United States, we will do our best to provide the answers that you need. Check out our BenU Advantage page and learn more about what separates us from other colleges and universities. Throughout our website we have provided information about academic programs, campus resources, financial aid and student life that will help you identify the advantages of a Benedictine education.
We encourage you to contact the Admissions Office to learn more.
It is strongly recommended that you schedule a time to meet with an Admission Representative. Admission Representatives will assist you throughout the admission process, in addition to providing you with an unofficial evaluation of your current and future courses.
BEN U ADVANTAGEThe Faculty
Benedictine University at Springfield has a student-to-teacher ratio of 15:1, which means that you will receive personal attention and develop close relationships with your teachers. You will not be just another number. More than 80 percent of full-time faculty have the highest degrees in their field. You will learn from experts, not teaching assistants.
Benedictine has a friendly and supportive staff that will provide you with advice, assistance and academic support services. The Resource Center provides tutoring for math, history, science and writing.
Students have access to many and varied internship and research opportunities. These experiences provide students with the knowledge and skills they will need when they enter the workforce.
Home away from Home
Benedictine’s closely-nestled campus and small student body create a home-like community. The 25-acre campus features 11 buildings, 3 of which are classrooms. The traditional undergraduate population for the 2010-2011 academic year was 600.
Benedictine makes transferring easy. We have transfer students from two- and four-year colleges from throughout the country. Our representatives are familiar with course offerings from other schools and are ready to assist you. If you are thinking about Benedictine, feel free to schedule an appointment with one of our Admission Representatives and they can help you choose classes that transfer to the major of your choice.
We offer a rolling admission policy, which means you can become an admitted, registered student prior to the start of our Fall, Spring and Summer terms.
