  • 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 form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.

Enrollment Process

Please list your courses in order of preference.

Curricular changes in the summer are very rare, but may occur, and are always subject to enrollment. Please choose alternate courses.

Official course registration will take place upon arrival. The online course form you submit to Arcadia prior to acceptance is not set in stone. If your enrollment is conditional upon entry into a specific course or courses, it is very important that you indicate these requirements at the bottom of the online course form on your Arcadia Passport.

Miscellaneous and Fees

You are only required to take one 3 - 4 credit course. Taking additional courses is optional and will result in increased tuition cost.

Please be sure to consult your program manager to learn if your courses have associated lab fees.

Grade Scale

Grades will be reported exactly as they appear on the Accademia Italiana transcript.
