Courses and Credits

A variety of courses are offered. See arcadia.edu for course listings and descriptions. Specific Ohio State course equivalences and credits will be determined by the appropriate Ohio State academic departments.

Each course a student takes abroad, regardless of the grade received or how course credit counts toward degree requirements, must:
  • Be approved. Student may either select courses from the pre-approved course list or seek course approval via the credit evaluation process; students are strongly encouraged to do this prior to submitting their applications.
  • Transfer back to the student’s Ohio State record.
  • Be completed for graded Ohio State credit. This grade will be factored into the student’s GPA.
PLEASE NOTE: Course approval, either via the pre-approved course list or completion of the credit evaluation process, does not guarantee the availability of the course abroad. Students must consult their program provider regarding course availability and talk with their Ohio State academic advisor to ensure that approved course options are appropriate given their degree requirements. All students should have multiple back-up courses approved. Canceling participation for failure to secure approval for desired course work will be subject to the cancellation policy

Admitted participants are required to register themselves in the temporary study abroad placeholder course, ARTSSCI 5797.  Further instructions will be provided upon admission to the program.

Program Costs

Students will pay the Arcadia program fee directly to Arcadia.

The Arcadia program fee includes tuition, housing, excursions, and in-country orientation.

If students withdraw or become ineligible any time 11 days after the acceptance notification from OSU, they will be held responsible for a $200 cancellation fee. Please refer to OIA's Cancellation Policy.

Testimonial:
This program allowed me to really get to know Sydney. I had a lot of free time to go out and explore and see what Sydney had to offer. I loved meeting Australians and experiencing their laid-back way of life. I felt like 7 weeks was a perfect amount of time to get used to the city and feel like I was at home.
