Program Format

As an adult learner, you come to class equipped with knowledge and skills that enable you to learn at an accelerated pace. The degree completion program in information technology can be completed in as little as three semesters.

The program is offered in the EU Flex model, allowing you to choose your academic experience. You can attend on-site, online or both. Classroom-based activities allow you to participate on-site or by webinar. The webinars are recorded so that you may view them as often as you would like. All courses are eight weeks in length.

Whichever format you choose, instructors are always available to meet with you by appointment. 


As an IT student at Elmhurst University, you’ll enjoy access to a wide range of general-purpose and specialized technologies and applications available to you on campus, in the public cloud and through the University’s private cloud. From classrooms with the latest in wireless to modern computer labs and the University’s online academic applications, you’ll be able to access the learning resources and technology environments you need to deepen your knowledge and practice your skills anytime, anywhere, through almost any device. And you’ll enjoy complete access to Daniels Hall—a superior facility that would be the envy of a much larger campus.
