Refer to the Umbra website for your chosen period of study:
Most courses use a textbook or a “reader,” a packet of information compiled by the professor. Books and readers will be available for purchase at the Umbra Institute or at local copy shops and bookstores. You will receive more information regarding locations and costs on arrival.
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.
Your course may require academic excursions and other activities that have additional fees associated which are not included in your program fee. Please be sure to consult the Umbra Institute course pages to learn if your courses have associated lab fees.
Grades will be reported exactly as they appear on the Umbra Institute transcript.
