Students must carry private insurance or be covered under the policy offered through the university.
Due to the strenuous nature of the NOLS program and travel schedule, students with disabilities are encouraged to fully consider their participation and the associated risks. Students are welcome to contact Susan Wise, coordinator of Disability Services with questions. NOLS provides additional information on the Student Essential Eligibility Criteria document. (In section 2 of the document, only 2.a. Wilderness Hiking Course applies to the Elon Gap Semester Program activities).
Students must complete the normal health and immunization forms required of all Elon students. Acceptance in the Gap Program is contingent upon submission of health forms by June 1 and subsequent acceptance by Elon and the National Outdoor Leadership School.
