Welcome to the Next Steps for admitted students in graduate programs!
This page will guide you through the registration process and introduce you to things you need to know before getting started as a new graduate student at Elmhurst College.
Confirmation of Intention to Enroll
All graduate students are required to pay a $200 non-refundable tuition deposit in order to register. Review the Confirmation of Intention to Enroll form to determine the payment option that works best for you.
Required Student Health Record Form
Complete the Student Health Record form. Only students born after 1956 are required to complete this form. Please return the completed form to the College’s Wellness Center before your first day of class.
Tuition Payment Plan
The College offers several payment plan options for students to pay their tuition. For more information, contact the Office of Student Accounts at (630) 617-3015 or you can view the payment plan options online.
The College also offers alternative payment plans for students whose employer offers tuition reimbursement. Students should contact the Office of Student Accounts at (630) 617-3014 to discuss their individual employer's plan and required documentation, or view the employer reimbursement policy and instructions.
Graduate students are responsible for registering online for classes and preparing for the beginning of classes themselves. Graduate students should have a conversation with their program director before going online to register.
Your program director is your academic advisor and students select classes in consultation with them prior to registering each term. Please consult the list of graduate program directors and their contact information for assistance. For students in non-cohort programs, it is important to meet with the program director to determine a course schedule prior to going online to register.
Once registration is completed, you will be able to check your student account, financial aid and other information regarding your status as a student at Elmhurst College on Bluenet. You can pay your tuition and fees and accept your financial aid on Bluenet if you have applied for a guaranteed student loan.
New graduate students have two options for registration; you can download a hard copy of the registration form or go on Bluenet and register for classes. The downloaded registration form must be submitted in person or by fax to the Office of Registration and Records as instructed. If you choose to go online to Bluenet to register yourself, please follow these steps.
1. Bluenet User ID and password
Shortly after you submitted your application for admission to graduate study at Elmhurst College, you received a letter indicating your Bluenet User ID and password. You need this information to register online. If, for some reason, you did not receive this letter or you’ve misplaced it, you can use these instructions to retrieve your User ID and password.
If you have any questions about this process or need additional assistance, contact the Computer Services Help Desk at (630) 617-3543.
2. Register for Classes on Bluenet
There are step-by-step instructions to assist you in the registration process. Contact your program director in order to determine your course sequence. Please refer to the advising section. You should also be certain that you are able to access Bluenet by following the instructions in No. 1 above.
If you have any difficulty registering for classes, please contact William (Bill) Smith, Associate Director, Admission Management and Advising for the School for Professional Studies at (630) 617-3384 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
NOTE: It is recommended that you come to campus before the term begins to pick up your Photo ID, the vehicle registration, the technology access (College email address and Blackboard User I.D. and password) and your textbooks.
