Accelerated Pathway students will be enrolled in Elon 101 as a cohort. Elon 101 is a first-year seminar course with a foundation in academic advising that introduces first-year students to the Elon University community. Centered on the whole student, Elon 101 assists students with developing a holistic plan focused on academic planning, experiential learning, and co-curricular engagement. The course is taught by Tracey Thurnes, the director of the Accelerated Pathways Program who serves as the students’ first year academic advisor.
Once students have declared a major, they will work closely with their undergraduate major advisor and the Health Professions Advisory Committee to promote advancement in their field of study.
School of Health Sciences (SHS) Advising
To help ensure academic and professional readiness for Elon’s graduate PA and PT programs, students will meet regularly during the school year with their SHS advisor. Additionally, students will complete an online advisement session each summer with the SHS advisor to discuss performance within the Accelerated Pathways Program and progress in their graduation plan.
