Higher education is an invaluable investment. At Benedictine University, we believe that the education we provide our students will yield valuable returns throughout the course of each student’s lifetime.

Benedictine University’s Office of Financial Aid is dedicated to assisting students and their families as they make this investment in themselves and their education. By helping students understand the resources available to them, we bridge the gap between the student’s cost of attendance and their ability to afford their degree. As a result, financial aid encompasses many different types of funding such as Benedictine University scholarships, federal and state grants, work-study opportunities, and federal and private student loans.

Every student’s financial background is different, and we pride ourselves on working with all students to help them make their Benedictine University education a possibility. We encourage all of our students and their families to use our website as a resource to understand all of the options available for funding their education.

The 2024-25 FAFSA Application is now available on www.studentaid.gov
