In order to better encourage and facilitate the admission of other colleges to Temple University, Temple has entered into articulation agreements with several colleges and institutions. There are three types of agreements between institutions: admission agreements, gened-to-gened transfer agreements and program-to-program agreements. All students must take two intensive writing courses at Temple University, in addition to meeting the gened requirements. Intensive transfer writing cannot be used to meet this academic/university requirement. The two intensive writing courses are determined by the student`s main subject. An evaluation with accepted transfer credits and a list of Temple course equivalencies is made available to students admitted on the TU portal. The evaluations are based on the main values that students indicate on their applications. The Temple School/College, in which they will register, will make the final decision on the transfer credits applicable to the diploma. All transcripts, including double high school enrollment, military transcripts and official score reports for standard exams, such as Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate, CLEP, etc. must be sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions (admissions.temple.edu/). Final transcripts are expected to be received prior to the start of registration for the next semester after the first registration, to ensure that students` academic records are up to date.
Applicants must submit official copies of the high schools and each higher education institution previously attended. The university defines “official transcription” as one sent directly from a high school or university to Temple`s Office of Undergraduate Admissions. Normally, SAT or ACT scores are only required if the authorisation authority has specifically requested it. Undergraduate Studies supports the long-standing commitment to facilitate transfer to the university, oversees the development and implementation of transfer credit strategies and practices, develops and supports partnerships between community universities, and works with other offices within the university to provide information and resources on transfer credit equivalences to current and future students.
