Admission For Transfer and Adult Students

Exceptional value. Transfer-friendly.

Complete your degree and reach your full potential, your way, at Elmhurst.

New Spring 2020 Transfer Credit Policy

Due to the extraordinary impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and in support of students seeking to transfer to Elmhurst College, the College is making the following exception to the existing transfer credit policy:

Students transferring to Elmhurst College will have their Spring 2020 transcripted “Pass” (non-letter) grades accepted at Elmhurst College for all courses, including courses for the Integrated Curriculum, majors and minors. Students applying to programs with external accreditation or professional licensure are subject to the standards associated with those programs.

Ask an Admission Counselor for More Information

We welcome more than 500 transfer and adult students to our campus each year. No matter where you began your educational journey, we’ll work with you to maximize your credits and plan your path to graduation.

We offer a number of transfer student resources, including generous financial aid packages that include scholarships specifically for transfer students. Find out why U.S. News & World Report ranks Elmhurst as one of the best values in the Midwest—and discover why we made the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society’s Transfer Honor Roll.
