Preview for Transfer Students

Preview for Transfers

Arcadia's 21st Preview / Global Expo, April 4
Each of the 388 first-year and transfer students and 40 faculty and staff members have returned from Preview, having immersed themselves in other cultures as part of unique academic courses. The University community is invited to learn more about their experiences at the Global Expo on Friday, April 4, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. in the Commons.

Preview gives transfer students a unique opportunity to study for a week abroad over spring break and earn two credits—all for just $495, including transportation and hotel accommodations.

The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University will plan social activities in the evening as well as some meals to immerse students in the local culture. 

What does the Preview experience include?

  • Roundtrip airfare and ground transportation
  • Programmed activities
  • Hotel
  • Some meals
  • Two credits

The total value of the Preview program, available only to new full-time transfer and first-year students, is more than $2,800, but is offered to full-time Spring 2014 and Fall 2014 transfers for only $495.

How do I earn credits for Preview?
Preview’s participants will meet for class on Friday afternoons beginning in late January. Students must attend class if they want to go on Preview. Students will be notified in the fall semester about the time and location of the classes. Participants will also complete a group project to be presented to the University community upon return to Glenside.

All new full-time transfer students who remain in good standing and are enrolled full time at the time of departure can participate in Preview.

Who will accompany transfer students on this study abroad experience?

Do I need to know the language to participate?
No. This opportunity is open to students with and without language competency.

Is this program restricted to students in specific majors?
Preview is open to transfer students in all majors.

How do I sign up?
All eligible students are notified by email in early fall about the online registration. Current students will receive specific details about deadlines and payment by email. Information about Preview and a link to online registration is also available on MyArcadia. Honors students are not required to pay the program fee but are responsible for passport/visa fees, meals, and incidental expenses.
