Elon Gap Semester

Program Vision

Elon's 10-year strategic plan, The Elon Commitment, details the university's commitment to launch "innovative pathways in undergraduate and graduation education."

The Elon Gap Semester Program represents a fulfillment of that commitment. The program's components represent the pillars of an Elon education: engaged learning through academic coursework and the Elon Experiences: leadership, international study and service experiences.

The program is NOT for the student who has a history of discipline problems, academic or social suspension from high school, or other personal circumstances that might be challenging to the the individual or group dynamic.
