The online course form students submit to Arcadia prior to departure does not guarantee approval or enrollment in those courses. There is a drop/add period at the beginning of each semester that allows students to make changes to course enrollments. If you make any changes, it is your responsibility to inform your home institution.
A supplemental tuition fee will be applied for students enrolled in two or more Science or Engineering courses. Additionally, special course fees may apply to certain courses in Mathematics and Fine Arts. Arcadia strives to bill these fees prior to departure; however, charges may not be assessed until after the add/drop period in some instances. If you have any questions about this, please contact your Program Advisor or the Billing Office.
