Financial Aid

Invest in Your Future

A great education is the best investment you can make in your future. And at Elmhurst College, it’s an affordable one, too.

Most Elmhurst families pay much less than the listed tuition cost. We reduce your costs through exceptionally generous financial aid packages, including scholarships, grants, student employment and loans.

In recent years, almost every Elmhurst undergraduate has qualified for some form of aid, with awards averaging $25,830 per student.
