Transfer your credits.
We accept up to 75 credits from regionally accredited two-year institutions and up to 90 credits from four-year institutions. We also award limited credit for prior learning and employment experiences. Our transfer equivalency tool will help you estimate how many of your credits will transfer.
Submit your application.
Transfer students must submit official transcripts from each school attended, regardless of how many semesters they completed.
Summer sessions at Arcadia offer the opportunity to catch up on classes, earn credits, and conduct research—and transfer students receive a tuition discount.
Can I receive scholarships?
We will automatically consider you for merit scholarships and achievement awards up to $20,000 per year based on your cumulative GPA and coursework. Members of Phi Theta Kappa are guaranteed a $1,500 scholarship per year for full-time study, and there is a $5,000 scholarship opportunity for full-time transfer students who graduated from an approved associate’s program from one of our community college partner schools.
What core classes will I need to take?
You will need to take English 101 if you have not completed an equivalent course with a “B” or better. In addition, you must complete the Global Connections Experience and Reflection and a Senior Capstone Project. The number of credits accepted will determine your remaining course requirements.

Can I schedule a one-on-one transfer appointment?
You can email firstname.lastname@example.org to walk through the application process, financial aid, and your transition to Arcadia with one of our counselors. One-hour appointments are available Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m., but arrangements can be made beyond these hours. Tours of campus may be available upon request.
