Making sure your credits will transfer back

It is your responsibility to make sure that you are registered for a full academic load according to your home school and that the courses you take abroad will transfer for credit. While every effort will be made to accommodate your course selection, Arcadia University does not guarantee placement in any course. You will formally register for courses during orientation in Italy at the Università del Salento.

Successful completion of an Italian proficiency test and/or the approval of language faculty is necessary for entry to all upper level Italian language courses. Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form on your Arcadia Passport.
