About Temple University
Important reminders for non-Temple students
- 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.
