First-Year Summer Experience Programs

Want to start your Elon experience before you arrive on campus?  

First-Year Summer Experience (FSE) programs are designed to help incoming students feel confident and prepared as they enroll at Elon. The FSE programs embrace the university’s commitment to experiential learning, and use this guiding philosophy to help students develop self-awareness, enhance relationships, and define community in preparation for their Elon experience.

Registration for FSE 2017 will open in early February. You will be able to access the system after you have paid your enrollment deposit and have received your OnTrack username and password.
