Gateway to Success Admission
Students who apply for admission to Arcadia University may be invited to apply to the Gateway to Success program. The invitation will ask students and their parent/guardian to come to campus for placement examinations and one-on-one meetings with academic and financial aid counselors. Families should have the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) completed prior to attending a Gateway meeting or should plan to complete it the day of the event. The FAFSA can be accessed at www.fafsa.gov. Gateway meetings will be held in January, February and March.
Admissions decisions to the University will be made on a rolling basis for students who have participated in the Gateway application process. Applications completed by January 15 will receive priority consideration. Applications completed after January 15 will be considered as program space allows.
Those admitted to the University via Gateway to Success must reserve their place in the program by May 1, 2012, by submitting an admissions deposit of $400 for resident students or $200 for commuting students. Students participating in the summer program will be asked to submit an additional deposit of $100.
