Benedictine University In Springfield To Stop Accepting Undergrads

(Springfield, IL) -- Changes are coming to Benedictine University in Springfield. On May 31st, students ages 18 to 22 will not be allowed to attend the school. The president of the Springfield branch says the decision comes in response to what they say is a growing need for adult education. University leaders also say undergraduate education wasn't financially stable for the school. Undergrad students enrolled at the Springfield campus have the option to transfer to the main campus in Northern Illinois or a branch campus in Mesa, Arizona.
