Elon Core Curriculum
The Elon Core Curriculum website is a great resource to review the the components and requirements of the Elon University general education program, which we call the Elon Core Curriculum. First-year students will mostly focus on First-Year Foundations, World Languages, and the Studies in the Arts & Sciences; along with courses for major(s) of interest in their first semester.
Student Planning (found within OnTrack)
Student Planning is Elon’s academic management system for placement test results (Test Summary), reviewing course offerings, planning classes, and class registration. This is embedded within the OnTrack system.
One of the first features of this system that students will use is the resources for course planning and registration. The Office of the Registrar offers additional resources for how to use this system. Please sign up for a collaborative presentation and demonstration on how to use Student Planning on June 6th at 4:00 PM. Sign up on the FYAR Virtual Advising Sessions section of our website.
The Smart Catalog is your guidebook to the requirements to graduate from Elon. This resource includes information on general graduation requirements as well as our lists of majors and minors. Review the majors and courses that you would have an opportunity to complete to help you determine courses of interest for your first semester.
Transfer Course Equivalencies
The Transfer Course Equivalencies website allows you to review what classes have transferred from other institutions in the past. Additionally, the Review Transfer Credit from Exams link on this site displays how Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, and other exams translate to course credit at Elon.
First Year Seminars
First Year Seminars are an integral aspect of the course offerings for incoming first-year fall admitted students. These seminars focus on the topic at hand, but with an inquiry methodology focused on developing critical thinking, analytical processing, self-awareness, and community and global connections.
