Successful applicants have strong academic backgrounds, a record of involvement in co-curricular activities and a strong desire to contribute to the campus community. The most important factors in the admissions decision are the academic record (including courses taken, grades attained and class standing) followed by SAT or ACT scores. We also consider the Secondary School Report, extracurricular activities and involvement, the essay and a student's potential to contribute positively to our campus environment.
Transfer students are admitted based on their academic record at the school from which they are matriculating. To graduate, you must complete 60 semester hours or more at Elon, including the last term before graduation.
