Experiential learning, outstanding teaching & mentoring, and an excellent four-year graduation rate make Elon a top-100 National University.
Elon has built a reputation as a university like no other. Our remarkable growth is tied to two central beliefs: students learn most deeply through engaged, hands-on experiences; and students’ lives are transformed through personal relationships with faculty and staff whose first priorities are teaching and mentoring. Now, in a time of fundamental change, Elon University has emerged as the leader in defining what matters most in a college education. Schedule a visit or check us out virtually today!
Global study at Elon includes 100+ study abroad and Study USA programs. Expand your worldview, and you’ll be changed forever. Study abroad for a one-month Winter Term, a semester, a summer, or an academic year. While abroad, many Elon students pursue research, service, and internships.
Prepare for success.
Elon partners with an expansive network of employers who recruit students for internships and full-time positions. Student Professional Development Center counselors work with students beginning in their first year to create personal development plans, résumés and strong networking skills.
An Elon education is an investment for a lifetime.
Elon has never favored the “high price, high discount” model found at other top private universities. We understand that the cost of a college education is daunting for most families. So, Elon has adopted three strategies that favor students and consistently earn top “best-value” rankings—a reasonable total price, an average 79% four-year graduation rate and using tuition to fund what is most important—learning.
Merit scholarships and grants.
Scholarships and grants—money that does not have to be repaid—are naturally the most sought-after type of assistance. Elon offers merit-based scholarships; talent-based scholarships; and exceptional need- and merit-based scholarships. Visit elon.edu/finaid to learn more about the various options available to students.
With a four-hour course structure and an innovative one-month Winter Term, students have more time for experiential learning. All classes are taught by faculty scholars who are deeply committed to their vocation of teaching. Their dedication extends beyond the classroom as they form mentoring relationships with students that last a lifetime.
The national leader in global engagement, with 16 straight years of #1 rankings in study abroad.
A global perspective is central to an Elon education. From their first-year Global Experience courses to their senior seminars, students gain a deeper understanding of people, societies, and environments around the world. Elon has 100+ programs in 50+ countries.
Thinking beyond graduation starts from day one.
From their first year, students prepare résumés, create career plans, and connect with employers. More than 95% of the class of 2021 was employed, in graduate school or doing volunteer services within nine months of graduation. When you graduate, you’ll join our 35K alumni who are working and making a difference across the globe.
