Academic classes are only a small part of what Elon Summer has to offer!

Internships are a great way to satisfy one or both units of the ELR requirement at Elon while gaining valuable experience specific to your professional interests.

Summer undergraduate research is a great way to delve into your favorite topics with engaged mentors. Summer programs offer students two opportunities to complete the undergraduate research ELR. Check out the Office of Undergraduate Research website to learn more.

Join our summer Study Abroad/Study USA programs, such as Elon in New York City. Take part in a study abroad program sponsored by a U.S. organization or enroll in classes at a university abroad.


Not to mention, the beautiful scenery of NC in the summer!

With temperatures averaging 80°, it’s always a pool day during the summer at Elon!
