What We Consider
Previous college academic history: This is the basis of our admissions decision, as it is most telling of the work you will demonstrate as a Temple student. Our average GPA for transfer admission is 3.1 with 15 or more attempted college-level credits. Remedial and developmental coursework is not counted toward our 15-credit minimum. Architecture, Nursing and Health Information Management have higher GPA requirements.
If you are seeking a second bachelor's degree, note that
- Nursing, the College of Liberal Arts and the College of Education and Human Development do not grant admission to second-degree students.
- The Fox School of Business does not grant admission to students who have already completed a first degree in a business-related field at a U.S. institution.
- The College of Science and Technology (CST) students wanting to complete prerequisites toward professional programs should contact Continuing Studies.
