Curriculum Requirements for Transfer Students

Three Parts to Our Curriculum

To graduate from Arcadia University, undergraduates who enter as transfer students must do three things:

  1. Complete a total of 128 credits. 
  2. Complete the requirements of their chosen major. 
  3. Complete the Undergraduate Curriculum Requirements for transfer students, which depend upon the number of credits initially transferred.  All students must complete EN101 if they do not have an equivalent course with a “B” or better.

Note: Undergraduate Curriculum requirements are defined by courses rather than credits. Numbers in parentheses indicate the number of courses.
