Study Abroad Approval Procedures for External Programs

To receive credit for courses taken on an external study abroad program, students are required to complete Temple's External Program Approval process, which includes seeking permission from Education Abroad, having any anticipated courses evaluated and approved by appropriate academic departments, and receiving academic approval from their Temple school/college academic advising office.

A list of approved External Programs can be found on the Education Abroad web site. Temple University strongly encourages students to consider these program options prior to exploring other possibilities. In addition to the suggested list, students also have the ability to enroll directly at any accredited foreign university or petition to participate in a program that is not on the approved list.

Students should discuss their study abroad plans with their academic advisor. Permission to study abroad is rescinded if the student is placed on academic warning or probation. As with all courses accepted in transfer, only a grade of C or higher is acceptable.
