Step 4: Passing your file to the Admissions Committee

If your file is complete: Your file is passed on to the Admissions Committee. There your essay is evaluated and your academics and activities are compared to Elon's admission standards. All admission decisions will be released according to the following notification dates:

Early Decision : December 1
Early Action: December 21
Regular Deadline: March 15

Decisions: Admission to Elon is selective. Consequently, applications may be accepted, deferred or declined on the dates above. When Early Decision and Early Action applicants are deferred, the admissions committee is requesting new information to be used in reconsidering your application in the Regular Deadline program. While receiving a deferred decision may be disappointing, receipt of new information in the form of mid-year grades or updated standardized test scores provides you the opportunity to be considered for admission in the final pool.

Wait List: Because of the large number of qualified applicants annually, it is not always possible for Elon to admit all talented students. Under the Regular Deadline program, applications may be accepted, declined or offered a place in a wait list pool. Since deferred applications are reconsidered with senior year information in Regular Deadline, some students may move from a deferred status to the wait list.

If your file is incomplete: We will do our best to notify you of materials missing from your application; however, it is not always possible to do so before a deadline has passed. Our advice: If you are applying Early Decision or Early Action, send your materials well before the deadline. In the event that official documentation is not received by the deadline you applied for, your application will roll to the Regular Deadline pool.
