What Is Orientation?

Arcadia’s orientation program for full-time students is an opportunity to set you on the best path for your transition to college life.

When Is Orientation?

There are two orientations, both of which you must participate in:

  • Summer orientation, a one-day event where you’ll take placement tests and select your classes. There are seven dates offered for first-year students and three dates offered to transfers. You must select one.
  • Fall orientation takes place the five days before classes begin. First-year students participate all five days, while transfers can choose to attend either the five-day session or a condensed one-day option.
