Elliott arrives at Craven Cottage on a free transfer from Major League Soccer side Colombus Crew.
Fulham boss Chris Coleman has been trailing Elliott for some time, as revealed by skysports.com, with the midfielder impressing during a trial at the club last year.
The West London outfit have now pushed through a deal for Elliott, but the deal has been delayed because the player is awaiting international following a mix-up by Fulham.
Elliott becomes Fulham's first signing of the January transfer window and he could make his debut in this weekend's FA Cup clash with Leyton Orient.
"He's a solid midfield player and is experienced," said Coleman.
"He'll add strength and depth to the squad."
