Graduate School Overview

Planning ahead is essential to the graduate school application process. Begin the summer before your senior year of college or at least a year before you plan to attend graduate school. Our timetable can be used as a guide for the steps you need to take. No generalized chart provides the specifics you will need to meet your personal timeline. As you refine your own timeline, carefully examine each application for deadlines as they may vary significantly. Keep your timeline updated and be sure to follow it. Below are additional resources to help you in your application process.

Career Outcomes

The term Student Outcomes refers to undergraduate outcomes within the 6-9 months following graduation, providing a snapshot of Arcadia undergraduates’ success following degree completion. The data is collected through a survey distributed to students at graduation, and again in the months following, along with knowledge gained from faculty, LinkedIn, and phone calls to our graduates, in accordance with national standards. The knowledge rate of outcomes for each class was 86% for the class of 2022, 79% for the class of 2021, 81% for the class of 2020, and 87% for the class of 2019, though response rates vary among colleges and departments.
