First-Year Advising & Registration Virtual Events

The Office of Academic Advising and our campus partners will be offering a variety of sessions for new Class of 2026 students and friends/families throughout the summer. These sessions are targeted toward students who will be joining the Elon Community in fall 2022.

How to Use Student Planning for Course Registration

Student Planning within OnTrack is the online tool that students use to plan and register for classes. The two videos below provide students a how-to in terms of logging in, accessing Student Planning, determining their date and time to register, and planning their classes.

Required Small Group Virtual Advising Sessions

The Small Group Virtual Advising Sessions are offered at a variety of date, times, and academic interests. You may select your session in advance. This will not impact the date and time that you will register for classes in July.

This session is required. Students must complete both Elon Bound and their Small Group Virtual Advising Session to be cleared to register for classes. Within 5 to 7 business days of completing Elon Bound, the sign up for the Small Group Virtual Advising will be available in your Acorn Account.
