How to Apply

Global Opportunities programs are open to both undergraduate and graduate students at Temple University and other institutions. Applications are reviewed once all materials have been submitted through the Klein GO application portal. Applicants are contacted via their Temple University email once an admission decision has been made.

Steps to Apply to Global Opportunities

  • Research the programs you are interested in using the pages on this site or our program database.
  • Stop by our office or complete this form. Global Opportunities staff are happy to meet with students both in-person and virtually to review their options and provide an overview of the programs.
  • Complete an advising application. Before you begin your program application, the Global Opportunities office needs to know more about you and your goals for studying away. This will help us to ensure that you're placed in a program that will best meet your needs and expectations. To begin your advising application, visit the page of your program of interest on the Klein GO portal and click “Apply Now.”
  • Schedule an appointment with Global Opportunities staff or peer advisors. During this meeting, you’ll learn more about your program of interest, application requirements and review how to finance your program.
  • Once your advising application has been reviewed and approved by the Global Opportunities office, you will complete your program application in the Klein GO portal. You should also apply for scholarships from Global Opportunities, Klein College or national organizations at this time.
  • Upon acceptance, enroll in your program, review your course registration with your academic advisor and attend pre-departure orientation.
