International Students & Admission

Attend one of America's best Catholic, liberal arts residential colleges.

  1. An Excellent Reputation Benedictine College is one of the best colleges in the Midwest United States according to the annual U.S. News & World Report rankings, and has consistently been named one of the top Catholic colleges in the country by the Newman Guide to Choosing a Catholic College. There are 50 academic majors, including architecture and a full slate of engineering degrees (chemical, civil, electrical and mechanical). The recently renovated and expanded Westerman Hall is now one of the best STEM facilities of any small college in America. Coupled with the Liberal Arts education that is part of all academic endeavors at Benedictine, our students are well-rounded and ready to be successful in the world.
  2. Located in the Central United States Benedictine College is located on the bluffs above the Missouri River in the historic town of Atchison, Kansas. Being in the geographic center of the United States and close to Kansas City International Airport, the rest of the country is easily accessible. Small town Kansas is quiet and restful, but Kansas City is just 30 minutes from campus and is home to a vibrant arts community, professional sports teams, and numerous shopping, dining, and entertainment venues.
  3. Known for Community Benedictine College is known for its sense of community and family. The students, professors and staff are welcoming and supportive. With an enrollment of just under 2,000 students, Benedictine offers a 13:1 student/faculty ratio, meaning you have small class sizes and greater access to your professors, things that larger institutions simply cannot offer. We are a Catholic institution that welcomes students from all faiths, and we are committed to serving others through volunteering, service learning, humanitarian outreach programs, and activities in the local community, throughout the region, across the U.S., and around the world.
