Transfer Visit Options

TRANSFERmation Sessions

At our TRANSFERmation Session, staff and students will answer your questions and show you around. Small group sessions offer you a chance to talk with other transfer students.


First Fridays

TRANSFERmation sessions will be held on the first Friday of February, March, and April at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. (followed by a campus tour). These sessions are open to anyone seeking information about the transfer process and scholarship opportunities. If you are attending an  session, you may bring unofficial transcripts for a preliminary credit evaluation, which will be emailed within 48 hours of your visit.

Instant Decision

If you are applying for the next available semester, you can request an instant decision appointment during your info session visit. 

To be eligible to receive an on-the-spot decision:

  • You must bring official transcripts from all institutions where credit has been earned. If you have completed fewer than 30 college credits, you must bring an official high school transcript with SAT or ACT scores. If you do not bring official documentation, admission decisions may be provisional or not immediate.
  • You should have a cumulative GPA of 2.50 or higher to be evaluated for an immediate decision.

Please note: If you have already been offered admission, accepted your offer, and need to register for classes, please schedule your orientation program instead.

One-on-One Transfer Appointments

Schedule a one-on-one meeting to discuss admission, financial aid, and your transition to Arcadia University with one of our transfer counselors.

Email to schedule a time that is convenient for you.  
  • Appointments are typically available M-F 8:30-5:00, but arrangement can often be made beyond these hours.
  • Appointments typically last one hour. 
  • Tours of campus may be available upon request.
  • Bring official copies of your transcripts for a credit evaluation. If you are applying for the next available semester, you may be able to receive an on-the-spot decision.

Additional Visit Options

If our Transfer Visit Options do not work for you, we offer general campus visits as well. Attend a general information session or schedule a personal meeting, designed to answer general questions for incoming first-year or transfer students. Check the Visit Calendar for available dates/times and registration.


Information Session + Campus Tour

Information Sessions and Campus Tours are offered on weekdays and Saturdays. The sessions provide an overview of what Arcadia has to offer and a campus tour with a current Arcadia student.  The session is not transfer specific and will include incoming first-year students as well.

Personal Meeting + Campus Tour

One-on-one meetings are set aside for transfer, non-traditional and/or students with extenuating circumstances. The visit includes a one-on-one meeting with an Enrollment Management staff member and a campus tour with a current Arcadia student.  These meetings are designed to answer general questions about Arcadia and are not transfer specific.  You are welcome to leave an unoffocial or official transcript so that a preliminary credit evaluation can be emailed to you within 48 hours.
