There’s no limit to the number of credits we accept, but you must complete at least 45 of your last 60 credits at Temple in order to receive a Temple degree. Our Admissions Office will let you know which credits are acceptable through a mailed official credit evaluation after you’re admitted.
Generally, Temple accepts academic, college-level courses beyond the developmental level, completed with a grade of C or better from schools with regional accreditation.
Each academic department determines how credits apply to your major, and students meet with advising units during on-campus registration. For more information about transferring credits to Temple, check out our Undergraduate Bulletin.
Temple also awards college credits to students who participated in Advanced Placement or International Baccalaureate programs in high school.
