The Elon in New York City fall program is a full semester opportunity for students to take classes and intern in the Big Apple.
The program is open to ALL majors.
This program allows for students to take 12 hours of credit through our partnership with Marymount Manhattan College (MMM). The school offers a variety of course selections and offers an advisor to help students get the most from the course offerings. View additional information about MMM.
Additional credits are available through an internship (2 credit hours) and a professional development course (1 credit hour). Study USA offers all students assistance in obtaining internships that will provide a unique and engaging experience. The professional development course offered gives students a chance to jump start their professional careers. The course will include assessments of strengths & interests to create a unique career plan and will allow students to network, interview and identify industry professionals.
Grades count toward an Elon GPA.
Study USA courses may NOT be taken on an audit or pass/fail basis.
Additional programming outside of 92Y will also be coordinated by Elon staff and alumni and available to students. Tours of the New York Public Library, group trips to the theater district, and networking events are just some of the events included on the itinerary. Opportunities for service learning will also be offered.
For the fall of 2015, Elon students will move into the 92Y facility on Saturday, August 22, 2015. After a week of orientation, students begin classes at MMM on Tuesday, September 1, 2015. The fall semester at MMM concludes on Tuesday, December 8, 2015 and students are required to vacate 92Y by Saturday, December 19, 2015.
The cost of the NYC program includes basic Elon tuition, plus additional housing and programming fees. The billable total for the semester is estimated at $23,000.
There are costs of living that are NOT billed/paid for by Elon, such as food and transportation (subway, taxi, etc.) These are approximated to cost an additional $4,000.
Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC. For additional information on scholarships or other funding for Study USA, view the Funding for Study Abroad page.

Event examples include concerts, readings, performances, and classes taught by industry professionals. Also located in the facility is an art gallery, cafe, and fitness center.
