Temple University Welcomes
University of the Arts Students

Temple University is committed to providing an accessible college education for all. As partners in higher education, we are ready to welcome University of the Arts students. You’ve chosen to pursue your degree in Philadelphia, and we want you to stay. At Temple, we provide a world-class education to our community of bold, creative and curious thinkers and doers, who are motivated to positively impact the world around them.

We can’t wait to help you join our community. Our intent is to make the path to enrollment at Temple seamless and transparent. We’re here to support you with making your decision to enroll here as an official Temple Owl.

More information will be posted soon. We encourage you to check back for updates.

Here is our promise to you. 

  • Students who transfer will not pay any more in net tuition and required university fee costs to attend Temple than you would if your education continued at the University of the Arts. (Requires full-time attendance and the application of all available federal and state aid.)  

  • Temple will transfer as many credits as possible to ensure you stay on track for graduation. 

  • Temple will waive the application fee for all University of the Arts students. 

  • University Housing and Residential Life will work with you to find your preferred housing option, either on campus or in an approved Best Nest property within Temple’s patrol zone.
