Visit Arcadia

No matter where you are in your college search, we’ll help you connect with staff and students to learn more about our one-of-a-kind University.

Aug. 13  

Join Us for an Open House

Hear from our student ambassadors, meet with faculty to learn more about academic programs, find out why we're nationally ranked in study abroad, and tour our Glenside campus. Students starting in the Fall of 2023 can receive an on-the-spot admissions decision (please bring a copy of your transcript—official or unofficial are both accepted).

Schedule a Visit

We offer a variety of on-campus visit options. Prospective students can meet with an Enrollment Management staff member and/or tour with a student ambassador. Registration is required; we are unable to accommodate walk-ins. Please register for one time slot and email as soon as possible if you are unable to attend.
