Here, we’ve gathered everything prospective first-year, transfer and international students typically need when learning more about Temple University and what it means to be an Owl. These resources can help guide students through the application process and answer any questions they may have, including what life is like for students in a city as vibrant as Philadelphia.

The first step applicants should take after they apply is activating their TUportal account. Shortly after they submit their application, students will receive an email with directions to activate their TUportal account. They’ll also need to check back regularly for academic calendar and admissions updates.

Applicants can connect with Temple’s team of dedicated professionals ready to help them navigate the admissions process. And, they can join our list to receive up-to-date information from the university.
