Perks for Out-of-staters

As an out-of-state student from Virginia, Nasia was yearning to experience college life in a new city for a reasonable price. After receiving her acceptance to Temple, she discovered Fly in 4—and signed up immediately to save as much money as possible by graduating on time.

“It feels like a weight has been taken off my shoulders with Fly in 4. Not having to worry about graduating on time has made all the difference. Fly in 4 has made this experience stress-free and your advisor helps modify goals to fit within your schedule.”

Opportunities for Exploring Majors

Meet Gabriela, a student who had a wide range of interests (like many incoming first-year students) but wasn’t quite ready to choose a major her first year of school. With Fly in 4, Gabriela was able to explore a variety of classes before declaring a major, and didn’t have to worry about it negatively impacting her graduation year.

“As somebody who was an undeclared student for so long, I appreciated the regular advisor meetings. They really helped with my university career timeline. I’m also the type of person who needs deadlines in order to encourage me to get things done.”

“Signing the Fly in 4 agreement is one of the first things new Temple students do. When you meet other students they will ask you what your major is and if you are Fly in 4. The aim of the program is to ensure you graduate on time and enter the workforce or start graduate and pursue professional studies after four years. It costs less to graduate in four years than it does to graduate in four-and-a-half, five or six.”
