The Advantage Program

The Advantage Program is coordinated with the Elmhurst Learning and Success Academy.

Students enrolled in a degree program at the University, and interested in some support from the ELSA program, have the opportunity to enroll in one ELSA course alongside three degree courses at the University. Students must apply and be admitted into Elmhurst University first. Once admitted, students can submit an ELSA application along with latest IEP and educational evaluations. ELSA staff will invite the candidate in for an interview to help determine which ELSA courses may best complement the student’s goals.

Students will work closely with the University access and disability coordinator for academic accommodations desired for degree courses. Students have pursued ELSA courses such as: Intro to College Life, Education Coaching, Self Determination, Individual Literacy Needs, and various career exploration courses. Students interested in the Advantage Program are strongly recommended to meet with the ELSA admission counselor, and the University access and disability coordinator prior to completing an ELSA application.
