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 factor in the admission decision is the academic record (courses taken and grades attained). Other factors that are considered include the application essay, Secondary School Report, leadership potential, extra-curricular and service-related activities, special talents and the ability to contribute positively to the campus community.
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.
