Make your deposit early and get the best of both worlds

Once you have been accepted to Elon, there are several advantages to making your $500 enrollment deposit as soon as possible:

  • Priority for housing selection and course registration is assigned based on date of enrollment deposit. So the sooner you make your deposit, the higher priority you will receive.
  • Students who have paid their enrollment deposits are invited to attend a Spring Orientation Weekend. This is a great opportunity to take a first, second or even third look at Elon to make your final decision. You'll also meet other incoming freshmen -- maybe even a future roommate!
  • Spring Orientation includes a special presentation called "How to Survive (or Not Survive) in College." This will provide you with great tips on time management, how to handle college classes, getting used to a new college environment and much more. And your parents will be getting their very own "How to Survive" presentation so they can prepare for the dreaded "I'm dropping my baby off at college" day.

Keep in mind that even if you attend one of these weekends you are not bound to enroll at Elon. The enrollment deposit is fully refundable as long as we receive notice in writing from you by May 1. $200 of your deposit is refundable until June 15. So you can have second thoughts!

Please note that if there are other circumstances preventing you from attending Elon now, you will always have the option to apply as a transfer student! Elon offers transfer opportunities in the fall and spring semesters.

To pay your deposit you will need your Ontrack username and password. If you have previously logged into OnTrack and changed your password, remember to use the password you created. Once you have logged in, click on the Pay Enrollment Deposit button, click on the Deposits tab located at the top of the screen, then Select a Term and click "select." Under Make a Deposit Payment, choose UG-Resident, click "select," then click Make Deposit Payment.
