Students may elect to pay tuition over time, using the Elmhurst College Payment Plan.
The plan offers two options.
Option A: Payment in full by the initial payment date
Option B: Monthly payment plan
The monthly payment plan gives students the opportunity to pay tuition and fees in five monthly installments per semester. To participate, students make an initial payment of 20 percent of the total charges (minus any scholarships, grants and loans that have been awarded and accepted). For the fall term the first payment is due by August 15, with the remaining balance due in four installments on the 15th of September, October, November and December. For the spring term, the first payment is due by January 15, with the remaining balance due in four installments on the 15th of February, March, April and May. A 1 percent service charge will be added each month on any remaining balance. Call the Office of Student Accounts at (630) 617-3015 for more information.
When your employer or other agency authorizes a billing under its tuition benefit plan and will pay the tuition directly to Elmhurst College, service charges relating to the payment will be waived or removed provided the payment is received within six weeks of the beginning of the term. Under such plans, payment of the charges cannot bedependent upon grades or course completion.
Tuition Reimbursement Plans
Some employers reimburse employees for tuition costs after the end of the term. Provisions for these types of reimbursement plans vary from one employer to another. To participate in a tuition reimbursement plan, students must submit a letter from the employer for each term of registration. Students receiving 100% reimbursement from their companies are not required to make an initial payment. Students receiving less than 100% reimbursement are required to make payment for their portion of charges in keeping with the Elmhurst College payment plan.
