Program Description:
This program is open to all fields but students applying should either be declared majors in an education field (i.e Music Education or Gen Ed) or request an interview seeking consent of the instructor (Judy Grimes, judyg@elmhurst.edu). Application areas would include any student interested in Service Learning, Special Education, Speech Pathology, Medical or related music and education fields.
  • Important Note - In order to encourage students to take advantage of J-Term and EC Summer Short-Term study away opportunities, Elmhurst College has established the following policy:

    • Elmhurst College continues to allow students to apply their January Term tuition benefit to study away courses.  Students who are enrolled full-time during both the Fall and Spring Terms pay no tuition.  Students who are enrolled full-time during either the Fall or Spring Term pay one-half of the regular tuition fee.  Students who are not full-time during either Fall or Spring Term pay full regular tuition.  Students are responsible for paying the program fees for their selected course.
    • New benefit for Elmhurst College students!  Students who enroll in an EC Short-Term Summer Study Away experience will now pay a reduced $750 fee instead of the on-campus tuition fee.  This fee is in addition to the program costs. 
    • EC Summer Travel benefits are limited to study away courses that are led by EC faculty during the summer months.  It does NOT apply to courses taken on campus during the regular Summer Term or to courses taken through affiliated programs.
    • In all cases, students will register for the course during the term that travel occurs; however, students will meet several times during the term prior to travel to facilitate planning and learn the culture of the host country.  In most cases, EC Summer Travel will take place during June and/or July.
