Visiting Students

Students interested in taking one or more undergraduate-level courses without seeking admission to a bachelor’s degree program are considered non-degree. We invite you to join us for a term at Elmhurst University.

Each term registration for non-degree students will begin on a specific date. Non-degree students are expected to adhere to the University add and drop deadlines. These registration dates and deadlines can be found on the Registration and Records Calendar.

If a course requires a prerequisite, non-degree students must send an unofficial copy of their transcript to the department chair prior to registration. Upon submission of the Non-Degree Registration Form, you are registering for the course(s) indicated and will be responsible for payment upon receipt of billing.
