About Temple University

In 1884, Reverend Russell Conwell began tutoring a young man who could only study at night because of his job. It wasn't long before Conwell was teaching dozens of students in similar circumstances. He soon convinced the members of his congregation and others in the community to start "an Educational Institution intended primarily for the benefit of Working Men." In 1888, “The Temple College” received a charter of incorporation. The university has since evolved into one of the nation’s premier institutions for higher education with 17 schools and colleges, nine campuses, hundreds of degree programs and nearly 38,000 students combine to create one of the nation's most comprehensive and diverse learning environments. Temple university today is among the 30 largest public universities in the United States and the 4th-largest provider of professional education in the nation. The projected number of freshmen in the Class of 2019 is about 4,900 and the average freshman high school GPA is 3.52.

Important reminders for non-Temple students

Once students fill out an application they will be issued an Temple University ID that will provide them with access to information related to their study abroad application. 
  • Meet with your home institution study abroad advisor before applying to a Temple program as your own school may have internal deadlines and paperwork you need to complete in order to participate.
  • Meet with your academic advisor to review your degree and graduation requirements and to discuss your plans to study abroad. With careful planning, a period of study abroad should fit into your program and not delay progress towards your degree. Look online at studyabroad.temple.edu for the latest course offerings.
