How to Apply

View our How to Apply page for general instructions for all students and see below for important notes for non-Temple applicants.

  • Meet with your home institution study abroad office before applying to a Temple program as your own school may have an internal application or other requirements you need to complete in order to participate. Remember that your home institution’s internal deadline for those requirements will likely be different from Temple’s application deadline. 

  • 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. Review course offerings for your chosen program on our website. 

  • Once you have been accepted to a program, you will be issued a Temple University ID that will provide you with access to information related to your study abroad application.
