Cancellation Policy for Winter Term 2022 programs:

When Elon is forced to cancel a program, generally any recoverable costs are returned to students. Given the unprecedented nature of the Covid-19 pandemic, and Elon’s commitment to global engagement, the University will make an exception for Winter 2022 programs. If Elon must cancel a program between now and the date of departure due to Covid-19 restrictions, e.g. closed borders or prolonged mandatory quarantines, students can expect to receive a credit towards a future Elon global engagement program. Students graduating in May 2022 will be given an option to participate in an Elon summer study away program or to receive a refund of their program fee, after the program is officially canceled by Elon. In the event that a program is cancelled, the GEC will reach out to participants with guidance regarding next steps and options available. The GEC cannot reimburse personal purchases, i.e. expenses not included in the billable program fee. Students who withdraw prior to a program being cancelled will receive a refund, if eligible, according to the Student Withdrawal Policy, detailed on the deadlines webpage.

The Status Chart below is a quick, comparative tool to help you find the program that best supports your graduation plan. Here’s how to use it:

  1. Check course credit information. Note that if a requirement includes “OR,” the course can count as EITHER requirement listed — NOT BOTH. E.g. “Civilization or Society” would count as EITHER Civilization OR Society, NOT BOTH. Consistent with on-campus courses, a course cannot double count this way within the Core Curriculum.
  2. Confirm you can take the Fall Prerequisite Preparatory Seminar, 1 s.h. (exceptions: BUS 2600, COM 3660, COR 3110 and GBL 2050). If you cannot take this prerequisite, you cannot enroll in the Winter Term course. Full-time students are not charged overload for this one semester hour.
  3. Double check eligibility and credit notes, such as “Open to students in the third or fourth year of study” (COR 3310 and COR 4460), and “Does NOT meet ELR requirement” (BUS 2600 and COR 3310 Tanzania).
  4. Click the links for academic catalog information, program leader contact, and the program’s full brochure page and application (“apply now” button will appear from the brochure page on Apr. 14).

Students may apply to only ONE program per term.

Applications have closed for 2021-22 Global Short-Term Programs. 2022-23 programs will be announced in April 2022.
