Welcome to Elmhurst University!
Orientation at Elmhurst University is a great opportunity to explore, meet new people, get accustomed to college life, and build friendships that can last a lifetime.
First-Year and Transfer Students
Please save the date for our next New Student Orientation for both first-year and transfer students, August 25-28, 2021.
Transfer students: While Orientation is required for all students, we organize transfer student groups based on RSVPs. Therefore, if you are a new transfer student, please RSVP using the form below.
As of July 2021, we will be holding Orientation in-person. We are closely monitoring COVID-19 situations and protocols and will adjust appropriately and as needed. Please check back here as the date approaches for more updates!
