Online Courses While Studying Abroad: Arcadia students are required to pursue a minimum of 12 U.S. credits in the study abroad country. In cases where the host institution requires a student to pursue more than 12 U.S. credits, this requirement will supersede the Arcadia minimum. Students can also choose to pursue between 2-4 U.S.credits online as long as the total credit load does not exceed 18 U.S. credits.
Online Courses for Residential Students: First semester first-year students may not take any courses on-line. Second semester first-year residential students and sophomores may take a maximum of one on-line course per semester, not including the two credit Global Connections and Reflection course. Residential juniors and seniors may take a maximum of two on-line courses per semester, not including the two credit Global Connections and Reflection course, with no more than half of the total number of courses taken in a semester being on-line.
