A Letter From the Dean

Dear Student,

Welcome to the School for Professional Studies. If you are thinking about making a change in your life that involves education, I encourage you to explore the options available to you here at Elmhurst College.

The School for Professional Studies (SPS) offers educational programs of exceptionally high quality to nontraditional students—people with busy lives who seek a better future. Our programs are especially designed to meet the needs of working adults and those whose life commitments have previously precluded higher education. With an unyielding commitment to academic quality, we offer master’s degrees, adult degree completion and certificate programs in a variety of formats: online, on campus, in hybrid form and at satellite locations.

At SPS, you’ll find experienced faculty members, relevant curricula, engaged students and a commitment to providing a high-touch experience for every student. Whether you attend classes here on our beautiful campus, at a satellite location, or through the Elmhurst College Online Center, you will find a spirited academic environment that challenges you to grow academically, personally and professionally.

I encourage you to contact us or stop by our office to learn how the School for Professional Studies at Elmhurst College can help you thrive.
