Program Status and Waitlist Information

Global Temple Conference

Students are encouraged to apply early for Temple study abroad programs, as applications for most* programs are reviewed on a rolling basis, and space on some programs is limited. Temple Rome additionally has capacity limits for specific Program Tracks. Once a program (or Program Track) fills, qualified applicants may be placed on a waitlist, or, depending on the term, offered a spot on a second choice Temple program. Students are typically notified of an admission or waitlist decision within two business weeks of submitting a completed application. Use the chart below to check on the capacity status of upcoming Temple programs.   

**Temple Exchanges and Architecture programs in Rome and Japan are reviewed after the deadline (not rolling admissions)


Important Updates for Spring 2021 applicants:

Rome and Japan

Please note that in order to comply with governmental health regulations regarding social distancing, Temple Rome and Temple Japan will have to limit the number of study abroad students they can host on their campuses for the Spring 2021 term. Capacity limits for Rome Program Tracks will be adjusted accordingly. In addition, we anticipate interest in the spring programs may be higher than in previous years as some students are deferring applications in light of the pandemic. 

Applications for Spring 2021 continue to be reviewed on a rolling admission basis. We expect that the programs will fill well before the October 1st deadline. See below for program status and waitlist information. We will continue to monitor the situation and make adjustments to our capacity if and when we can. However, waitlists for both programs are likely, and prospective students are urged to submit their applications for spring 2021 programs well in advance of the deadline, and to consider summer 2021 or fall 2021 as an alternative. We will review waitlists periodically to ensure we can provide the opportunity to as many students as possible.

Important Update for Summer 2021 applications:

Although typically open in November, Temple Rome Summer I 2021 and Temple Japan Summer 2021 applications opened in June. Applications for other Temple summer study programs will open at a later date.

As with spring, we anticipate interest in Temple Rome and Temple Japan summer programs may be higher than usual as some students are deferring their study abroad plans. We therefore continue to encourage early application.
