Benedictine University is an inclusive academic community dedicated to teaching and learning, scholarship and service, truth and justice, as inspired by the Catholic intellectual tradition, the social teaching of the Church, and the principles of wisdom in the Rule of St. Benedict.
Benedictine University aspires to be a thought leader in Catholic higher education. We seek to provide a transformative and integrative educational experience grounded in Benedictine values, helping students shape lives of meaning and purpose as engaged citizens who care for the earth, welcome people of diverse faiths and cultures, and promote the common good.
Please note, due to heat conditions in Lownik Hall the Office of the Registrar will be intermittently working virtually throughout the Summer.

Here, you will find information on why we renumbered, the goal of the project, a listing of the old and new course numbering sequence, and two tools to find specific courses and their new numbers.
