If you are a non-Temple student, there are several steps you should take in regards to finances if you are applying to a Temple program:
- Consult with your study abroad or financial aid advisors at your home school to find out which sources of aid are available to you and what the processes are for using aid to attend a Temple program. Federal awards and a number of state awards are usually transferable to Temple and other schools.
- Many schools use a contractual agreement called a consortium agreement to process your aid when you’re attending another institution such as Temple. If your home school uses consortium agreements, you or an advisor from your home school should send the consortium agreement to us along with your application or shortly after you apply. Temple will complete the agreement and send it back to your financial aid office.
- Once your financial aid is disbursed, it may be sent directly to Temple or it may be sent to you. Check in with your study abroad or financial aid advisors at your home school to find out exactly how financial aid transfer would work for you.
- If you’re planning to finance all or part of your study abroad through financial aid funds, make sure to follow all of your school’s procedures for transferring financial aid before you leave for your program.
