Documentation

All documents received as part of the admissions process become the property of Arcadia University. They will not be duplicated, returned to the applicant or forwarded to any other college, university, individual or agency.

Transcripts

One official transcript from each college, university or professional school attended is required. Transfer credits included on a transcript must include grades earned; if not, an official transcript from the original school must be submitted. Transcripts must be sent from the issuing school in a sealed envelope and contain the appropriate signatures and seals to be considered official.

Letters of Recommendation

Recommendations must be of a professional or academic rather than personal nature. Recommendations must be sent by the Recommender and not the applicant. For students who have been out of school five years or less, at least one letter of recommendation must come from a professor. Other students may submit letters from employers or persons who know them in some professional capacity. See individual program sections for specific requirements.

Specific Admissions Policies and Procedures

Submit a Deposit

Some programs require a deposit to hold a student's spot in the class. Please refer to your specific program of interest to determine deposit requirements.

To deposit online using a credit card (Visa, Discover, MasterCard and American Express) or by checking or savings account, visit www.arcadia.edu/depositnowgrad. All first and second deposits are non-refundable. Future tuition payments can be paid online using a credit card or electronic check. Payments can also be made in person at the One-Stop Shop using check, money order or cash.

**Please note that depositing does not officially ensure you a spot in a graduate program without formal review and confirmation of receipt by an Enrollment Management staff member.**
