Welcome to the Next Steps for admitted students in accelerated degree completion programs!
This page will guide you through the registration process and introduce you to things you need to know as you get started as a new student in an accelerated program at Elmhurst College.
Confirmation of Enrollment - $100 Tuition Deposit
All students in an accelerated program are required to pay a $100 non-refundable tuition deposit in order to register. Please review the Confirmation of Intention to Enroll form to review payment options.
If you are currently enrolled in college courses, please send us your final transcripts. Request that official, sealed transcripts be mailed directly to the School for Professional Studies as soon as final grades are posted. Once we receive the final transcript, you will receive an updated Transfer Credit Evaluation.
If applicable, please have all Advanced Placement (AP) and College Level Examination Placement (CLEP) scores or Military Credit/Documents (e.g. DD-214, AARTS, SMART, CCAF transcripts) sent to the School for Professional Studies.
Advising and Registration
All students in an accelerated program must meet with an academic advisor to select their courses. Please make sure to call the School for Professional Studies to set up an appointment at (630) 617-3300.
Required Student Health Record Form
Students born after 1956 are required to complete the Student Health Record form. Please return the completed form to the Wellness Center prior to your first day of class.
Note: Beginning August 15, 2015, an initial payment of 20% of the total charges (minus any scholarship, grants and loans which have been formally awarded and accepted) for the Fall 2015 term will need to be submitted to the Student Financial Services Office. Students registering on or after August 15, 2015 will need to pay 20% of the total tuition and fees before registering for courses.
- Student Photo ID/Jaypass
All Elmhurst students must have a photo ID. The Library staff takes photo ID pictures and prepares the Jaypass, which students use to access library services, attend campus events, use the fitness center and purchase coffee and food on campus after money has been loaded onto the card. Students should get their photo ID prior to classes beginning. For current Library hours, visit the A.C. Buehler Library.
- Parking and Vehicle Registration
Students registered in adult accelerated undergraduate programs are not charged a parking fee and do not need to register their vehicle on campus. View the Parking Policy and Map.
- Technology Account
The Technology Account (eNumber and password) gives you access to your Elmhurst College email, library archives, BlueNet services, Blackboard and other online resources through the Portal. The format for the eNumber is a lower case letter ‘e’ followed by the last seven digits of the ID number (located on the bottom-left of your Jaypass identification card). The Technology Account is required to access any public computer on campus. For more information, refer to the Elmhurst College Help Desk.
- My Elmhurst Portal
The My Elmhurst Portal has been designed to improve communication, convenience and collaboration on campus. The My Elmhurst Portal gives you access to various College systems from one location and through a consolidation of various accounts (BlueNet, TouchNet, D2L, Blackboard, etc.) it simplifies access through the use of a master Technology account. The Portal is the place to go to get campus news and announcements, to check your college email and to find links to campus references. For more information, refer to the Elmhurst College Help Desk.
Students may purchase textbooks at The Book Cellar, located at the west end of Goebel Hall on campus. The Book Cellar has information regarding the textbooks you will need for your classes. Be sure to bring a list of the classes in which you are registered for to assure that you purchase the correct textbooks being used in those classes. If you have any questions, contact The Book Cellar at (630) 617-3185.
