Each year, members of the graduating class come together to present the College with a gift. This is one of the most important ways that you and your class can impact Elmhurst College and make a difference for future Elmhurst College students. You can make your class gift online. Further details regarding upcoming events will be emailed to you.
Grades for the term classes for prospective graduates are due from the instructors on a specific date. Prospective graduates who fail the term and do not meet the requirements will be informed and they will be removed from the graduation list.
Tuition and Fee Payment
Financial obligations to the College must be satisfied in order for your degree to be awarded. You are encouraged to contact the Office of Student Financial Services at (630) 617-3015 with questions regarding the discharge of financial obligations.
All "incompletes" ("I" grades) must be resolved and submitted to the Office of Registration and Records. Students will not be allowed to graduate if "incompletes" remain on the record, including any received during the term.
