These academic policies and regulations generally apply to all undergraduate students and provide a framework within which schools and colleges may specify further conditions or variations appropriate to students in their courses or programs. Statements of academic policies and regulations apply to both matriculated and non-matriculated students unless explicitly noted otherwise.

The policies and regulations as stated in the Bulletin are announcements only and in no way serve as a contract between the student and Temple University.

The texts of some of these policies are available in the Temple online Policies and Procedures Manual at http://policies.temple.edu/

Students should consult their advisers and Dean's offices for any changes in policy that affect them.
