Aid Basics and Eligibility

Elmhurst College offers aid based on demonstrated financial need to supplement scholarships offered at the time of admission. A variety of other financing options are available for those who are not eligible for need-based aid.

In addition, to be eligible for federal, state, and institutional need-based assistance, students must be:

  • Eligible according to federal student aid requirements
  • Formally admitted to Elmhurst College and enrolled in an eligible program
  • Meet enrollment requirements for the specific funds awarded
    • Elmhurst College Scholarship funds and need-based grants require full-time enrollment
    • Federal and state grant funds may be awarded to students enrolled less than full-time, depending on their eligibility determined by the FAFSA.
  • Maintaining satisfactory academic progress
