About This Bulletin

The Undergraduate Bulletin is produced by the Office of the Provost to present general information about Temple University and specific information about undergraduate academic programs. The information in this bulletin is subject to change by Temple University at any time. Neither this bulletin nor any parts of it may be relied upon as a contract between Temple University and any student, applicant, or other user of this site. All prospective and current students should consult with appropriate University Offices to verify current information and the status of policies, programs, descriptions of curricula, or other information in this bulletin.

If you are a new undergraduate student at Temple this year, this Bulletin contains the requirements of programs into which you will be enrolling. For that reason, your advisors may refer to Fall 2016 as "your Bulletin year."

Current students who started at Temple before Fall 2016 should visit the Archives to find the requirements of their program of study for their Bulletin year.

All new undergraduate students are required to complete the university's General Education (GenEd) curriculum.

New freshmen starting in the 2016-2017 academic year are required to complete the GenEd curriculum. Students who have fewer than 15 transferable credits are considered freshmen. Additionally, students whose transfer credits were earned while in high school, regardless of the number of transfer credits, are considered freshmen.

New transfer students starting in the 2016-2017 academic year are required to complete the GenEd curriculum. Students who attempted 15 or more transferable credits after high school and prior to being admitted to Temple University are considered transfer students.

In addition to this Bulletin, you will also find several other resources that provide important information for Temple University undergraduate students. These resources include, but are not limited to, the Course Descriptions, Class Schedule, Campus Safety Services, Disability Resources and Services, Military and Veteran Services, Transfer Student Information, and University Housing and Residential Life.

We hope this Undergraduate Bulletin will prove informative and useful to you as a Temple student. Questions or suggestions regarding the content of the Undergraduate Bulletin may be directed to the Office of the Senior Vice Provost for Undergraduate Studies (phone: 215-204-2044; e-mail: ug-bulletin@temple.edu).
