Immunizations

Under the North Carolina General Statutes (G.S. 130A-152), all entering college or university students are required to provide their immunization history. Elon University students must submit documentation of these immunizations to Student Health Services on or before July 1, 2014. The immunization forms are available at Student Health Services’ website.

Staying Fit

Maintaining physical well being is key to your law school success. The City of Greensboro offers a wide array of recreational facilities and parks.

In addition, Elon Law students are provided with annual memberships to the Kathleen Price Bryan Family YMCA in downtown Greensboro. Students are supplied with the paperwork and information about joining the Bryan Family YMCA during Orientation Week.

Elon Law students also have access to all of Elon University’s indoor and outdoor fitness facilities. Law students have the opportunity to form teams to compete in intramurals run by Campus Recreation on the main campus.

Health Insurance Requirement

Elon University School of Law requires that all students have insurance coverage. The School of Law provides students with the opportunity to be in enrolled in the University’s Injury/Sickness Insurance. All students are automatically enrolled in this health coverage. If you are covered by a comparable insurance plan, an online waiver is available and needs to be completed by August 15, 2014.

Health and Counseling Services

Law students may visit the R.N. Ellington Health and Counseling Center on the main campus for health needs. Student visits to the Health & Counseling Center are free of charge. There are nominal charges for medications, lab tests, procedures and medical supply items.

Elon law students will also have access to BarCARES, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides confidential counseling at no charge to lawyers and law students in participating bar associations and law schools.

Disability Accommodations

The School of Law and Elon University are committed to the principle of equal opportunity. One of the ways we express that commitment is in our efforts to accommodate qualified students with disabilities as they face the challenges of university life. Faculty, staff, administrators and students work together to find approaches and accommodations that enable students to benefit from the wide variety of programs and activities on campus. The School of Law works with the University’s Academic Advising Center to arrive at the most suitable approaches and accommodations for its students. Students with disabilities who are seeking accommodations must register with the Disabilities Services Office. For individual steps in this procedure, please see the Registration Checklist.

For more information about the University’s disabilities services, accessing accommodations, and to view a copy of the University’s Disabilities Guidebook, students may visit the University’s Academic Advising Center website.

Law students and prospective law students who need more information about disability services should contact Susan Wise, Coordinator of Disability Services at 336-278-6500 or Alexis Martinez-Fedrizzi, Assistant Dean for Student Affairs, at (336) 279-9256.
