Campus Visit Grant

The Arcadia University Campus Visit Grant helps defray the costs of a Glenside campus visit for prospective undergraduate students and families from a distance of 250 miles or more (500 miles or more round-trip). We know the importance of a campus visit in the college search, and we understand the challenges associated with the costs of traveling from a distance.
