Given current unrest in Egypt and a US Department of State Travel Warning, we are not currently accepting applications for the program at AUC.
The most populous country in the Middle East, Egypt has a rich cultural and intellectual heritage that has developed over several millennia. Cairo is a major political and cultural center of the Arab world. More than 17 million people are in the urban area surrounding the capital city, as are the Pyramids and the Sphinx.
Grades count toward an Elon GPA.
Study abroad courses may not be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis, regardless of the host institution's policy.

Costs for study abroad vary program to program and will not be exactly the same as on-campus costs of attendance at Elon.
For cost information for this program, please see the budget sheets:
Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC. For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Funding for Study Abroad page.
If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program. Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.
Initial approval is granted by Elon, and final acceptance is granted by The American University in Cairo.
A successful semester abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation. Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad. These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety. Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program. Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, are the student's full responsibility.
Interested in the program? Join the GEC Facebook page and chat with alumni and other prospective students!
Study Abroad Student Ambassadors (SASAs) are GEC student representatives who have participated in one or more study abroad programs, and have been trained to speak about their experiences. You can be in touch with current SASAs via email, or contact past study abroad participants who have attended your program. They are looking forward to hearing from you!
