Study Abroad

Registering for Classes For Your Return

You are responsible for registering yourself for courses through OnTrack for your next term on campus as you would in any other term. The Registrar's Office will grant you access to register; your advisor should not toggle your access.  Refer to OnTrack for registration dates and times.  Once the schedule of classes has been posted for the term, you may log in to see your individual time.  Registration times are local time at Elon, not the local time in your host city.  Your access to preregister in OnTrack will remain open through the end of preregistration.

You cannot register for internships, independent study courses, Honors Thesis, co-op, research, or any other class requiring the signature of the professor and/or the department chair while abroad.  You will need to register for these upon returning to Elon.  If you experience difficulty accessing preregistration through OnTrack at your assigned time, contact the Isabella Global Education Center (GEC) at (336) 278-6700 or

Planning Your Courses

Elon Center Students (Florence, London, San José)

Consult with your academic advisor at Elon as you plan your schedule.   The Elon faculty on-site at your Center can also assist you with advising questions.  Your advisor does not need to grant you access to register; the Office of the University Registrar will grant you access.

Students on Elon Affiliate Programs, Exchange Programs, and Non-Elon Programs 

The courses you are currently taking abroad will not appear in your degree audit.  Refer to your Course Request Form to determine which Elon requirements you are satisfying with your current courses abroad.  Review the tentative course plans you listed on the second page of the Course Request Form and consult with your academic advisor at Elon as you plan your schedule.   

If you plan to take a course at Elon for which you are currently taking the prerequisite, you will not be able to register for that class on your own.  We will register you for the course, if seats are open.  Send the course number, section, course name, and meeting times as well as the name of the prerequisite course you are taking this semester to  Please send this information before the start of preregistration.
