You will receive information about fall course registration, which will be critical for you to successfully register for your first semester of classes at Elon!


Advising & Registration

Once you have completed the Elon Bound Virtual Pre-Orientation program, sign up for a required small group advising session. We offer a variety of advising sessions. Some will be focused on certain academic disciplines, such as in the Love School of Business or the School of Communications. Others will be general sessions for students with any academic interest. These sessions, which are in a group of 10 or fewer students, last 30-minutes. We review the Elon Core Curriculum, the use of Student Planning to register for classes, incoming credits earned and discuss any questions you have about the process. Once the required small group advising session is completed, you will be provided a date and time to register for your classes.
