Visa Information for Students

Students are required to obtain a visa in order to study for a summer, semester, or year in most countries. Arcadia's goal is to provide you with clear, accurate instruction on obtaining appropriate travel documentation. While it is each student’s responsibility for obtaining the appropriate visa documentation, we strive to be a comprehensive resource for you and will advise and assist you in all aspects of the visa process.

The Arcadia student services and overseas staff members routinely correspond with the international education community, NAFSA Consular Liaisons, and organizations that advocate on behalf of American universities to foreign governments administering consulates in the United States. Additionally, Arcadia frequently reviews consular websites and other materials in order to maintain the most current and accurate information about a particular country's entry procedures.

Please work with your program manager, and review the visa information for the country where you will be studying, for more information.
