Academic Advising

The mission of the Office of Academic Advising is to serve the Elon community by partnering with all students to offer holistic, student-centered academic advising which focuses on: self-advocacy, degree attainment, and life as a global citizen.

We fulfill this mission by:

  • Focusing on individual student needs and interests to promote equitable success for all students.
  • Fostering meaningful connections between students and professional staff.
  • Supporting the transition of incoming students through the First Year Advising Seminar program.
  • Engaging with faculty and staff as collaborative campus partners.
  • Facilitating the understanding of university policies, procedures, and the exploration of resources.
  • Implementing dynamic, ongoing assessment and training towards the development of best practices.

The First-Year Course Request is due June 1st for incoming first-year students. This video explains the process and discusses many common questions by students in the Class of 2025.
