First-year students are automatically reviewed for admission to the Temple University Honors Program. There is no separate application for Honors Program admission.
For current Temple students or transfers looking to join the Honors Program, we will review your college transcript and answers to our application. See more information on our Admissions page.
Honors students have access to all that Temple has to offer, which is a lot! But here in the Honors Program we have several organizations you can join. Check out the Honors Organizations here! Also follow us on Instagram & TikTok (@templehonors), so you can see what exciting things we are doing.
There is! About 85% of our first year students choose to live in the 1300 Residence Hall in the Honors Living Learning Community. The accommodations are suite-style with four students split into two bedrooms and sharing a 1.5 baths. 1300 also features study lounges, classrooms, a TV lounge, and computer stations with printing. There is also housing available for upper-classmen in the Returner LLC in 1300. Find out more about housing options on the Living Learning Community page.
There are no...limits to the advantages. Oh, but you probably want to know what they are:
Honors courses are NOT more work or more difficult than non-Honors courses. They are typically smaller in class size and taught as seminars rather than lectures, so they allow for a deeper and more personal exploration of the course content. Our professors are at the top of their fields and are lauded for their insight and focus on learning. We offer courses at all levels, featuring Honors options in all General Education areas. Honors "Special Topics" courses tend to be faculty passion projects such as Ethics in Medicine, Battleground Cinema, and Comics Journalism, just to name a few.
