Pre-Med Health Scholar Program

The Pre-Med Health Scholar Program is offered to highly talented High School Seniors interested in pursuing a career as a physician. It is designed to recruit exceptional students to Temple University by offering a Linkage Agreement (4+4) with the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. Students entering Temple University as Pre-Med Health Scholars are the only students able to consider an Accelerated BA/MD (3+4) Degree option.

Dentistry, Pharmacy, Physical Therapy, and Podiatry Accelerated Scholar Programs

Accelerated Scholar Programs allow Pre: Dentistry, Pharmacy, and Podiatry (3+4 Tracks) as well as Physical Therapy (3+3 Track) students the option of earning both their Bachelor of Arts and Graduate Degrees in a shorter period of time after successfully passing all courses in the first year of professional school. The Accelerated BA/DMD, BA/PharmD, BA/DPM, or DPT Programs are designed for high-achieving high school students who have distinguished themselves with impressive high school academic records and a demonstrated interest in their respective field.

Accelerated Scholar Program applications for interested entering freshman are available on the Pre-Professional Health Studies web site. Completed applications are due before a student enters Temple University. Applicants will therefore know their accelerated option status before entering Temple University.

The Temple Law Scholars program provides an opportunity for outstanding students in the College of Liberal Arts and the Fox School of Business and Management to gain provisional admission to Temple University School of Law at the same time they are accepted into an undergraduate program. As Temple Law Scholars, students are expected to complete the University Honors Certificate Program in conjunction with their undergraduate degree, after which they enroll in the Temple University School of Law, leading to the degree of Juris Doctor. While most Law Scholars complete their undergraduate degree before entering Beasley School of Law, Law Scholars can choose the Accelerated Option and enter Beasley School of Law after their third year of undergraduate study. This 3+3 option is currently available only to students in the College of Liberal Arts and the Fox School of Business and Management. A Law Scholar who chooses the Accelerated Option applies the first year of law school coursework toward undergraduate degree requirements and receives a Bachelor's Degree in his or her chosen major(s) after the first year of Law School. Law Scholars interested in pursuing the 3+3 option must indicate their interest in doing so during the first semester of their first year of undergraduate study. For more information or an application, please visit the Temple Law Scholars Program web site.

University Honors Program

The University Honors Program is open to students enrolled in every undergraduate school and college. No special application is required for incoming first-year students. Current Temple students or transfer students who would like to be considered for the program must apply through the Honors web site. Applications are reviewed at the end of each semester after grades have been posted.
