Academic Advising for Readmitted Students

If you are a readmitted student returning to Elon, we’re here to help you get settled into your first semester.  We will assist you with developing a course schedule and registering you for your first-semester classes.  A professional staff member in the Academic Support Center will serve as your academic advisor until you are assigned an academic advisor in your major after arriving on campus.

Preparing for course preregistration

Fall semester preregistration dates – early June to late July
Spring semester preregistration dates – early December to mid January

Readmitted students are eligible to preregister for first-semester courses when all of the following conditions are met:

  • Preregistration for current students has ended. 
  • You have been officially admitted or readmitted to Elon University.
  • Your enrollment deposit has been paid and processed.

Once the above conditions are met, look for an information packet from Elon’s Academic Support Center in your mail. 

Preregistration steps

  1. Complete and submit the preregistration information form.
  2. The Academic Support Center will email you a checklist of recommended courses, based on your transfer credits and intended major, for your first semester. Once you receive the checklist, you can prepare for registration by accessing course offerings using OnTrack.
  3. After completing steps 1 and 2, you can call to preregister for courses. Call the Academic Support Center, 336-278-6500. We are open 8 a.m. - 5 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Reminder: You must have all official transcripts of your college work, including current coursework, sent to Elon's Office of Admissions: Campus Box 2700, Elon, NC 27244. Failure to do so will interfere with appropriate course selection.

Foreign language placement exam: Instructions for taking the foreign language placement exam will be sent to transfer students. Contact the Academic Support Center if you need further information.
