If you are applying as a first-year student from a U.S. high school, you’ll use Temple’s self-report high school transcript tool. This tool allows you to submit your high school courses and grade information prior to submitting your final official high school transcript, and it is a required step in the admissions process.
Once you have submitted your Common Application and activated your TUportal account, you will be notified to self-report your high school courses and grades. This step is completed in TUportal.
When entering your high school courses and grade information, you must use your own transcript, provided by your high school, to enter courses and grades exactly as they appear on your transcript. Inaccurate or false information could result in a review by our admissions committee and revocation of admission.
Enter all attempted courses for grades nine through 12, including pass/fail courses. If you have repeated a course, you will enter it twice. You must also choose the correct level for the course (e.g., college preparatory, advanced placement or international baccalaureate courses).
You will be able to indicate the academic level of all courses attempted. If you are enrolled or were previously enrolled in dual enrollment or college level courses, list them as “College Prep.” You will then add the name of the course and the name of the college you where you took the course in the same box. College prep courses includes pre-AP, gifted and talented and accelerated.
Enter only final grades for courses in grades nine through 11, including semester, trimester or yearlong courses. You must also add your grade 12 courses. You can select “in-progress” if you are currently completing grade 12 coursework and do not have grades or you can enter a current grade, even if it is not a final grade.
Do not add weight to your grades. Enter your grades exactly as they appear on your transcript.
If you receive a final grade each semester for a course, please list the course twice indicating "half year” and then you will report a first and second semester grade.
Block scheduled courses are considered full-year. A half block scheduled course is considered half-year. If you took a summer course, please include that course in the academic year prior to taking the course and list it as a full-year course.
Temple realizes some high school level courses may be completed in middle school, however, please only include the courses taken during high school.
Requests for Additional Grades
If we request additional grade information, either your first-quarter or mid-year grades, please have your high school counselor submit your updated transcript. This step is not completed through self-report.
Submitting Your Official Transcript
You must submit your official final high school transcript prior to enrollment. If you are offered admission to Temple, one of your next steps as an admitted student will be to submit your final high school transcript.
Your final transcript will be reviewed against your self-report transcript. Inaccurate or false information could result in a review by our admissions committee and revocation of admission.
