A copy of the employer letter must be submitted each term in order to defer your tuition and fees. There is a $25 fee per term to defer.
Registration for Classes
New graduate students have two options for registration; you can download a hard copy of the registration form or go on Bluenet and register for classes yourself. The downloaded registration form must be submitted in person or by fax to the Office of Registration and Records as instructed. If you choose to go online to Bluenet to register yourself, please follow these steps.
1. Bluenet User ID and password/Graduate Students
Shortly after you submitted your application for admission to graduate study at Elmhurst College, you received a letter indicating your Bluenet User ID and password. You need this information to register online. If, for some reason, you did not receive this letter or you’ve misplaced it, you can use these instructions to retrieve your User ID and password
NOTE: Call (630) 617-3543 for the Computer Services Help Desk if you have questions about this process or need additional assistance.
2. Registration for Classes on Bluenet
There are step-by-step instructions to assist you in the registration process. If you are in a cohort program, you will register for the courses in the first term of the planned curriculum (see course schedule below or in your admission/registration packet). If you are in a non-cohort program, you should meet with, or contact your program director in order to determine your Summer/Fall classes. You should also be certain that you are able to access Bluenet by following the instructions in No. 1 above.
If you have any difficulty registering for classes, please contact Linda Dufort at the Office of Registration and Records at (630) 617-3055 or Chrisoula Drivas, Office of Adult and Graduate Admission at (630) 617-3306.
Fall Term 2013 Courses
Graduate students registering for Fall Term 2013 courses, please have a conversation with your program director before going online to register. Your program director is your academic advisor and you should go over your program with your advisor prior to registering each term. Please consult the list of graduate program directors and their contact information for assistance.
Once you have completed your registration, you will be able to check your student account, financial aid, and other information regarding your status as a student at Elmhurst College on Bluenet. You can pay your tuition and fees on Bluenet and you will be able to accept your financial aid on Bluenet if you have applied for a guaranteed student loan
Required Student Health Record Form
Complete the Student Health Record form. Only students born after 1956 are required to complete this form. Please return the completed form to the College’s Wellness Center before your first day of class.
Student Health Insurance
Graduate students have the option to receive health insurance through Elmhurst College. Interested students should contact the Wellness Center for details.
Student Photo ID/Jaypass
All Elmhurst students must have a photo ID. The Library staff takes photo ID pictures and prepares the Jaypass, which students use to access library services, attend campus events, use the fitness center, and purchase coffee and food on campus after money has been put on the card. Students should get the photo ID before classes begin.
Parking and Vehicle Registration
If you plan to park your car or motorcycle on campus, you must register your vehicle in the Campus Security Office, Lehmann Hall, Room 008. There is no charge for parking for graduate students but you must display a parking permit sticker on your car windshield. If you have any questions, contact Campus Security at (630) 617-3000.
In addition to the User ID and password you already have to access Bluenet, you will also need a College email address and a User ID and password to access Blackboard, the College electronic classroom. Stop by the Academic Computing Services Office in Daniels Hall, Room 107, to pick up your access information. Be sure to bring your Photo ID with you.
The Book Cellar (west end of Goebel Hall) has information regarding textbooks you will need for your classes. Be sure to bring a list of the classes in which you are registered to assure that you will purchase the textbook(s) being used in those classes. NOTE: Students enrolled in the Master of Education in Teacher Leadership program will learn about required textbooks from their instructors on the first night of class.
It is recommended that you come to campus before the term begins to pick up your Photo ID, the vehicle registration, the technology access (College email address and Blackboard User I.D. and password), and your textbooks.
