Preview Weekend

Applications to the Master of Arts in Higher Education program will be evaluated by the MHE Admissions Committee in mid-January. All applicants will be notified of their admission status during the third week of January. Applicants granted conditional admission to the MHE program will be invited to a Preview Weekend experience and be offered the choice to participate in either the on-campus or virtual Preview Weekend program. Every conditionally admitted student will be given full consideration for a scholarship; no separate application form is necessary for scholarship consideration.

We hope conditionally admitted students will visit Elon for Preview Weekend to experience first-hand the ambience of the campus and meet with current students, faculty, and staff in-person. However, anyone for whom a campus visit is not feasible is welcome to participate in the Virtual MHE Preview Weekend program. We wish to provide all conditionally admitted students with opportunities to learn more about the MHE program and Elon University, and interview for apprenticeship opportunities.

On-Campus Preview Weekend on the Elon campus will be Sunday and Monday, February 27-28, with an optional Saturday night (February 26th) dinner/social event with current MHE students. Single hotel rooms will be provided at no charge for Saturday and Sunday nights, with transportation provided to and from the Raleigh/Durham (RDU) airport and between the hotel and campus. You can review the draft in-person Preview Weekend schedule here (MHE Preview Weekend 2022 On-Campus).

Virtual Preview Weekend will be Sunday, February 20 from 2-5pm, with virtual faculty and apprenticeship interviews on Monday, February 28th. The virtual programming will be held on Zoom and include opportunities for interaction with current students, faculty, and apprenticeship supervisors. You can review the draft virtual Preview Weekend schedule here (MHE Preview Weekend 2022 Virtual).

Both Preview Weekend formats will include an opportunity to learn more about the MHE program as well as interview with a faculty member and apprenticeship supervisors. Candidates must interview for, be offered, and accept an approved apprenticeship before final admission to the MHE program is granted. The apprenticeships for which students may apply to interview are described at Apprenticeships.

Applicants who submitted a completed application by the January 10th deadline will receive full consideration for invitations to Preview Weekend. Applications completed after the deadline will be considered based on space availability.
