About Bradley University

You might think that it’s easy to get lost in a university with a campus of 6,000 students, but that’s not the case with Bradley University. Bradley values individuality and stresses the importance of engaged, discussion-based learning. The university stays true to these principles, with a student-to-faculty ratio under 15:1.

Yet, the university does not sacrifice varied academics for small class sizes. More than 100 undergraduate majors are available at Bradley University, as well as about 30 graduate degree programs. Many programs, such as Game Design and Sports Communication, are unique opportunities.

Student life at Bradley is especially vibrant. You can choose from more than 200 student clubs and organizations, including athletics, multicultural organizations, and leadership and service programs.

Bradley’s application deadline for undergraduates is January 31. After January, the school follows a rolling admissions policy until space is filled. However, January 31 is also the deadline for priority financial aid consideration, so it’s a good idea to apply early to ensure that you receive maximum financial assistance.

For graduate students, application deadlines vary by program. University graduate admissions requirements include an application fee, personal essays, transcripts, standardized test scores and letters of recommendation.

I recently visited Bradley and was extremely impressed with the overall interaction between the professors and students. The presentation was excellent. I felt that they were genuinely in the students.


Overall Rating

I liked meeting with current students and also alumni of Bradley University. The campus was beautiful even though it was snowing and freezing on the day that I visited. I can't wait to become a Bradley Brave in the fall of 2012!
