2015 Summer Orientation Days
The Summer Orientation component of the Arcadia University New Student Orientation program is the time that new students complete academic inventories that will help them place into appropriate classes. Inventories are given for writing, modern languages, mathematics and, for some students, physical science. Students will then select possible courses for the Fall semester.
Due to the different needs of first-year and transfer students, the days have been designated for each population. You must attend on one of your designated days. New students should login to MyArcadia to register online for an Orientation day.
Please note, there will be a two-day program (June 26 and 27) for students participating in the Fall First-Year Study Abroad Experience (FYSAE) program and their families. All Fall FYSAE students and families should attend on those days.
Every new, full-time student is required to attend one of the following Summer Orientation Days:
Thursday, June 25
Friday, June 26
Friday, June 26 - Saturday, June 27 (FYSAE only)*
Monday, June 29**
