When Is Orientation?

  • Summer Orientation, a one-day event where you’ll take placement tests and select your classes. There are seven dates during June and July offered for first-year students and three dates during June, July, and August offered to transfers. You must select one.
  • Fall Orientation takes place at the end of August, 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.
  • Spring Orientation is a one-day orientation program held for full-time students entering Arcadia University at the beginning of the Spring semester.
