To help ease the process of applying to Temple University, we have created this simple calendar to make sure students complete the necessary steps in a timely manor.
Keep your grades up!
The Temple Admissions Committee will review grades from your entire high school career.
Take the SAT, ACT, or both.
Temple University will accept the highest combination of SAT scores or take the ACT if that is higher. Check with your guidance department for upcoming test dates, or check out the CollegeBoard.com or ACT Web sites.
New SAT: High school students are required to take the new three-section SAT, which is comprised of a Math, Critical Reading, and Essay Writing section. Temple does require students to complete all three sections for their admissions application.
Begin thinking about what type of college you would like to go to and what you would like to study.

Apply, Apply, Apply!
Many schools, including Temple, work on a rolling admissions cycle, which means the sooner you apply, the sooner you will receive a decision.
Temple’s application deadline is March 1 of your senior year. You will receive a decision letter by mail 4 to 6 weeks after we receive your completed application (application, essay, high school transcripts, SAT or ACT scores, and any letters of recommendation).
Fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) form to qualify for financial assistance.
Seventy percent of Temple students receive some form of financial aid. The priority deadline to file a FAFSA is March 1. You can file online here.
Decisions, Decisions, Decisions!
It is now time to decide where you want to continue your education.
Once you receive your acceptance letters, the National Tuition Deposit deadline is May 1. For Temple, the housing deposit deadline is also May 1.
Don’t go it alone! Our Admissions staff at Temple University Ambler is here to advise you every step of the way. Feel free to contact us anytime via phone at 267-468-8100 or e-mail at email@example.com.
