Elon’s Global Education Center (GEC) takes health and wellness very seriously and this year is no exception. GEC Program Managers are collaborating with our faculty and partners to reconsider all program aspects to ensure that programs can be implemented according to health and wellness guidelines set by Elon, CDC and local authorities. We are working through these considerations as quickly as possible and will be emailing a communication by Tuesday, July 14. 

Currently, there is a freeze on new applications and change forms. 

 

If Elon cancels a winter term program by Aug. 31, students will be credited the $400 initial payment and will not be responsible for the program cost.

Please take note of our cancellation policy and use those dates as checkpoints for you and your family to consider your own comfort with pursuing a global engagement opportunity at this time. If an unforeseen cancellation must be made by Elon during the fall semester due to COVID-19 circumstances, students accepted and/or wait-listed into the program will be refunded all recoverable program costs.

By Aug. 21:  Students that withdraw on or before this date will not be billed the $400 initial payment.

Aug. 22 – Aug. 31, 2020: Students that withdraw between these dates will not have the $400 initial payment refunded, even if they have not yet paid it.

Sept. 1 – 30, 2020: Students that withdraw will be billed 25 percent of the program cost, even if they have not yet paid their bill.

Oct. 1 – 15, 2020: Students that withdraw will be billed 50 percent of the program cost, even if they have not yet paid their bill.

After Oct. 15, 2020: Students that withdraw are billed the full program cost, even if they have not yet paid their bill.

Linked below for each program is the course listing, prerequisite course description, cost breakdown, and brochure and application. The brochure lists a tentative itinerary and additional policy and contact information.

All programs are open for rolling applications (unless canceled) — students may apply to, or switch into, programs with open spots OR to be added to the bottom of a program’s wait list.
