Apply Using the Common Application
Temple exclusively uses the Common Application. When completing your application, be sure to indicate whether you’re applying Early Action or Regular Decision. Even if you submit before or by the Early Action deadline, you still must indicate Early Action on your application to ensure you will receive an admissions decision early.
There’s an application fee of $55, which you will submit with the Common Application unless you qualify for a waiver through a federal or state program.
After submitting the Common Application, you’ll need to submit additional information through TUportal, which is a communication platform we use to keep you up-to-date with the admissions process.
In addition to your application, we also consider several other factors to fully capture each student’s experiences, interests and academic coursework, including
- an application essay,
- extracurricular activities,
- optional letters of recommendation,
- standardized test scores and
- your high school performance.

Your application will be complete and ready for our admissions team to review as soon as all of the above information is received.
