This section was created to meet the needs of Elon students who wish to return to complete their undergraduate degrees. Whether you have been out on medical, academic or personal leave, we want you back with us!
We hope you will find this information helpful as you reapply. Kaitlyn Schultz, director of transfer & special admissions, will coordinate this process.
It is important that you adhere to the above deadlines to ensure that there is adequate time to process your application for readmission, to update your financial aid information and to apply for housing. Applications are reviewed on a rolling admission basis, and the process (which is outlined below) usually takes about one month.
Print and complete the PDF version of the Application for Readmission. Answer all questions and write requested explanations. Unless you were out on medical leave, a $25 application fee is required. (If your computer is not equipped with the Adobe Acrobat Reader, click here.)

If you have taken courses at another college or university since you withdrew from Elon, it is your responsibility to:
Have an official transcript sent to the Elon Admissions Office as soon as your coursework is completed. You must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA there to be eligible to return to Elon.
Have the Dean's Evaluation Form completed by the dean of student life at that institution. This form can be found on the last page of the PDF of the transfer application. Or, you can call the Elon Admissions Office and we will mail the form to you.
Note: You must be in good standing academically and socially to be eligible to return to Elon.
In order for you to be reinstated, your application will be reviewed and approved by a committee from these areas: Academics, Student Life, Office of Student Conduct and the Bursar's Office.
If you have been on medical leave, your physician must send written documentation stating that you are permitted to resume classes. Your application will not be processed without this document. It should be sent to:
Jana Lynn Patterson, Assistant Vice President for Student Life
2970 Campus Box
Elon, NC 27244-2010
Or you can fax your documentation to 336-278-5283.
If you are planning to live on campus, you will need to contact the Office of Residence Life at 336-278-7300 concerning the housing selection process.
Once readmitted, you are required to pay the enrollment deposit, which is $500 for residents and $300 for commuters. This ensures that departments such as Academic Support and Student Life know to prepare for your return.
Once you have been readmitted and have paid your deposit, you may contact Academic Support to discuss course registration.
You may contact the Financial Planning Office at any time during the readmission process to update your information prior to your return.
