Enrollment process for Winter Term programs

STEP 1: Learn about programs and choose your top options.

Attend Program Launch on Wednesday, March 20th at Fonville Fountain in front of Alamance Building from 10:30am – 12:30pm to learn more about programs – faculty leaders, program alumni and GEC staff will be available to answer your questions.

When choosing a program, look for:

  1. Courses that support your graduation plan
  2. Potential course conflicts for the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar
  3. Activity level (posted to the program brochure)
  4. Cost (program fee will be listed from this page, and details posted to the brochure page)

STEP 2: Enroll in the fall preparatory seminar.

To enroll, simply register for the fall preparatory seminar (1 s.h.) that is the prerequisite for the winter term program in which you’d like to enroll.

The GEC no longer requires a pre-approval application for winter Study Abroad and Study USA courses. Instead, same as for other fall courses, if there are spots available for the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar (1 s.h.), and you do not have a course conflict, you may enroll once your registration access is open. Also consistent with other fall courses, you may choose to join a waitlist, course availability will be adjusted in real time, and you may make enrollment changes until the drop/add deadline in August.

Fall registration access begins on Thursday, Apr. 18. Your individual registration time will be posted on the “Schedule” tab in Student Planning.

TIP: Complete the Advisor Overload Form if the preparatory seminar (1 s.h.) will put you at overload (more than 18 s.h.)

If the additional one semester hour (1 s.h.) puts you in course overload (i.e. more than 18 s.h.), you will need academic advisor approval before you can register. Complete the Advisor Overload Form linked from the Course Overload page.

Submit this form EARLY so your registration access is not delayed.

The additional fees associated with exceeding the maximum course load in a semester is waived for full-time students put into overload by the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar.

STEP 3: Complete your MyElonGlobal registration within 10 days (toward the end of April)

Toward the end of April, the GEC will email you instructions for completing your program registration in MyElonGlobal. Once you receive that email, you have 10 days to complete your registration. If you don’t complete your MyElonGlobal registration within that window, you will be withdrawn from the course in order to allow for someone to join the course or move off the wait list.

    Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

    How is registration prioritized for Winter Term?

    Students will sign up for a WT predeparture course based on their Fall registration period. Course registration access time and waitlist standing are determined by class standing/credit hours earned and special circumstances, such as disability accommodations or special-program considerations.

    The minimum GPA for Winter Term programs is 2.0.

    What if the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar (1 s.h.) presents a course conflict?

    If you cannot enroll in the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar because of conflicts, you cannot participate in the winter term course. As you would with any other course conflict, either a) choose a different winter Study Abroad or Study USA with a fall preparatory seminar that does not present a course conflict or b) drop the other course that presents a conflict.

    What if the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar (1 s.h.) puts me in course overload?  

    If the additional one semester hour (1 s.h.) puts you in course overload (i.e. more than 18 s.h.), you will need academic advisor approval before you can register. Complete the Advisor Overload Form linked from the Course Overload page.

    Submit this form EARLY so your registration access is not delayed.

    The additional fees associated with exceeding the maximum course load in a semester is waived for full-time students put into overload by the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar.

    There is, however, a program cost for the Winter Term Study Abroad or Study USA program. Costs are or will be posted to the Winter 2024 programs listings page, and will be detailed from each program brochure.

    How many fall prerequisite preparatory seminar (1 s.h.) courses can I register for? 

    Students should register for only the fall preparatory seminar associated with the Winter Term Study Abroad or Study USA program they wish to participate in.

    Will I know my position on a wait list?

    Like other course wait lists, students can see the total number of students on the wait list, but they cannot see their position.

    When will I know if I’m “accepted” into a winter program?

    There is no separate application or acceptance process for participating in a global short-term program. You will enroll directly in the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar (1 s.h.) that corresponds to the Winter Term Study Abroad or Study USA program in which you wish to enroll.

    When will I see the Winter Term Study Abroad or Study USA course on my schedule?

    Students will register themselves for the winter term study away course when registration for winter term opens in the fall semester.

    I've registered for the fall prerequisite preparatory seminar (1 s.h.). Is that all I need to do?

    In late April, you will receive an email from the GEC with instructions on how to complete your MyElonGlobal requirements which should take you no more than 20 minutes to complete.

    You must complete your MyElonGlobal requirements within 10 days of receiving the email prompt in order to secure your spot in the course.

    When will I know about Elon Global Scholarship support?

    Students that complete their MyElonGlobal registration by May 31 will be notified in June.

    Students that complete their MyElonGlobal registration June to August will be notified in September.
