Accreditation and Transcripts

Global Temple Conference


Temple University is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools; this accreditation includes Temple's campuses and programs abroad and assures that the university maintains high-quality academic programs internationally. In addition, Temple University’s Fox School of Business is fully accredited by the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB) and our Tyler School of Art is accredited by the National Association of Schools of Art and Design (NASAD) and National Architectural Accrediting Board (NAAB).

Transfer of credits

Be sure to discuss your academic plans, course selection, applicability of financial aid, and transfer of credits with your home institution prior to departure.

Credits earned on Temple University Study Abroad programs are recorded on standard Temple University transcripts and may be readily transferred to other institutions.


The Education Abroad office arranges to have an official transcript sent to non-Temple students' home institutions free of charge. You must sign the transcript release authorization on the Home College Approval Form of the application. Additional transcripts are available from the Temple University Registrar.

Non-Temple students also receive a Temple University login username during the application process; this provides access to their academic history and grades on TUportal, the University’s central student information system.
