A Great College for Veterans

Elmhurst has been designated a 2016 Military Friendly® School by a well-known resource for military veterans.

Welcome Military Servicemembers and Veterans!

Elmhurst College welcomes all members of the U.S. Armed Forces and is proud to serve you as you take the next step toward achieving your academic goals. We strive to provide personalized support for our military veterans through our Veterans Affairs office at the Center for Professional Excellence. 

Elmhurst is a Yellow Ribbon School and accepts all Federal VA educational benefits for veterans, servicemembers, spouses and dependents. We encourage everyone who is potentially eligible for these benefits to apply. For more information on veterans' eligibility for educational benefits, please contact our Military Services Coordinator or visit the VA website.

We recognize that active military and veterans may face additional challenges when pursuing their academic goals, and we are committed to supporting you through that transition through:

  • The Yellow Ribbon Program (available to an unlimited number of students)
  • Full-time veteran advisor on staff
  • College credit for military training and experience
  • Military students who are called to active duty may withdraw without financial penalty

Academic Programs
We offer a variety of undergraduate, graduate and certificate programs to meet the needs of military veterans and servicemembers. In addition to the traditional on-campus format, we also offer online and hybrid courses.
