Registration 2017-2018

Welcome to the Next Steps for admitted students in graduate programs!

This page will guide you through the registration process and introduce you to things you need to know before getting started as a new graduate student at Elmhurst College.

Confirmation of Intention to Enroll
All graduate students are required to pay a $200 non-refundable tuition deposit in order to register. Review the Confirmation of Intention to Enroll form to determine the payment option that works best for you.

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.

Tuition Payment Plan
The College offers several payment plan options for students to pay their tuition. For more information, contact the Office of Student Accounts at (630) 617-3015 or you can view the payment plan options online.

Employer Reimbursement
The College also offers alternative payment plans for students whose employer offers tuition reimbursement. Students should contact the Office of Student Accounts at (630) 617-3014 to discuss their individual employer's plan and required documentation, or view the employer reimbursement policy and instructions.

Graduate students are responsible for registering online for classes and preparing for the beginning of classes themselves. Graduate students should have a conversation with their program director before going online to register. 

Your program director is your academic advisor and students select classes in consultation with them prior to registering each term. Please consult the list of graduate program directors and their contact information for assistance. For students in non-cohort programs, it is important to meet with the program director to determine a course schedule prior to going online to register.

Once registration is completed, 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 and accept your financial aid on Bluenet if you have applied for a guaranteed student loan.

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. 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
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.

  • Go to My Elmhurst Campus Portal and select BlueNet. Select “Forgot User ID” at the top of the screen. This will lead you to a screen where you have to enter your last name and your social security (SSN) or student ID (Colleague ID) number. The User ID will be shown. Usually last name and first initial is the ID.
  • Next, repeat the same steps but select “Forgot my Password.” Again, enter your last name and social security number or your student ID number. The temporary Password will be emailed to you.
  • Go back to the login page and enter your User ID and temporary password.
  • When you login to Bluenet the first time, you will be prompted to change your password right away. Be sure to choose something you will remember.
  • Now that you are logged in, you can enter the New/Current Student portal to register for classes, locate where your grades and GPA will be posted, and also check on your financial aid and student account.

If you have any questions about this process or need additional assistance, contact the Computer Services Help Desk at (630) 617-3543.

2. Register for Classes on Bluenet
There are step-by-step instructions to assist you in the registration process. Contact your program director in order to determine your course sequence. Please refer to the advising section. 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 William (Bill) Smith, Associate Director, Admission Management and Advising for the School for Professional Studies at (630) 617-3384 or

Additional Information

  • 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 loaded onto the card. Students should get their photo ID prior to classes beginning. For current Library hours, visit the A.C. Buehler Library.
  • 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. View the Parking Policy and Map. If you have any questions, contact Campus Security at (630) 617-3000.
  • Technology Account
    The Technology Account (eNumber and password) gives you access to your Elmhurst College email, library archives, BlueNet services, Blackboard and other online resources through the Portal. The format for the eNumber is a lower case letter ‘e’ followed by the last seven digits of the ID number (located on the bottom-left of your Jaypass identification card). The Technology Account is required to access any public computer on campus. Stop by the Academic Computing Services Office in Goebel Hall, to pick up your access information. Be sure to bring your Photo ID with you. For more information, refer to the Elmhurst College Help Desk.
  • Textbooks
    Students may purchase textbooks at The Book Cellar, located at the west end of Goebel Hall on campus. The Book Cellar has information regarding the textbooks you will need for your classes. Be sure to bring a list of the classes in which you are registered for to assure that you purchase the correct textbooks being used in those classes. If you have any questions, contact The Book Cellar at (630) 617-3185. 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.

NOTE: 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.

If you have any questions, contact the School for Professional Studies at (630) 617-3300 or
