Group Arrivals: Arcadia has organized a Group Flight for certain programs. Group flights are met by the Arcadia in-country staff and students will be provided transportation to either their orientation venue or program site.

Individual Travel: Arcadia in-country staff will be on hand at designated times on the program arrival date to assist students arriving independently.
