Elon is planning for a Healthy 2021-2022, with a continued focus on the well-being of the entire community. We will benefit from last year’s experience of holding in-person classes and on-campus activities and operations. Now, with a vaccinated campus and the ability to pivot and adapt as conditions demand, we look forward to a more normal year and a fully engaged, relationship-rich learning model on campus and beyond.

Vaccination Central

Elon University requires all students (undergraduate, law school and other graduate students) to provide documentation of being fully vaccinated with a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration or the World Health Organization (for international students).

Arrival on Campus in August

(enrolling undergraduates)

New students will have an assigned move-in time on Friday, August 20. On arrival, all first-year and transfer students and families must report first to the central check-in at Schar Center to receive orientation materials. Students must show confirmation that they’ve submitted vaccination documents by pulling up Elon’s My Readiness portal on their smart phones.

Students who have not submitted their vaccination documentation or those exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms will be required to be tested for the virus at Schar Center. Unvaccinated individuals must wear masks indoors at all times. Additional health and safety measures may be necessary, as determined by CDC recommendations.
