On-Campus Information Session and Tours

Our campus tours begin with an information session led by an admissions counselor who will provide details about the admissions and financial aid process.

Following the information session, a student guide will lead the campus walking tour. Our student guides love telling their stories and answering questions, so this a great opportunity to learn firsthand what it’s like to be a student at Elon. Meet our tour guides.

After you register for a tour, a confirmation email will be sent that includes directions to campus and other important information. Be sure to check your email prior to your visit.

Your information session and tour will last approximately two hours. In the event of inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances, tours will be canceled to ensure the safety of our visitors. You will be notified via email and/or text message if there is a change.

Questions? Email admissions@elon.edu or call (336) 278-3566.


Class Visits

Class visits are available during the fall and spring semesters for prospective students only. Reservations to attend a class must be made at least one week in advance.

Why visit an Elon class?
  • This is an opportunity to experience what makes Elon distinctive – our small class sizes, student-to-faculty ratio, and faculty mentorship.
  • Experiencing an Elon class is not about exploring your desired major, but rather a chance to see how you fit at Elon.

What do I need to know before attending class?
