Arcadia in Chile Summer Program Courses

The Chile summer program offers two five-week sessions worth a total of six credits each. You have the option to participate in one or both sessions. While in Chile you will take classes offered in English or Spanish.

  • Make sure your credits transfer back for credit with your home school – this is your responsibility.
  • Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
  • Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.

Completing the Preliminary Course Form

You must complete a Preliminary Course Form, available on your Arcadia Passport, as part of the application process. When selecting a Spanish language course, you should provide an educated estimate of which level you may take in Chile. Please note that you are unable to take different level courses simultaneously in one session. The final Spanish language level is determined by placement at orientation.
