Academic Policies & Regulations

Please see the Undergraduate Bulletin's Academic Policies section. Students are responsible for complying with all university-wide academic policies that apply to their individual academic status. Additional and unique policies or exceptions for the Division of University Studies appear below.

Academic Course Load - Academic overloads during the fall and spring semesters, students who want to take 18 or more semester hours, need special approval of the director of Student Services.

Dean's List - Each fall and spring semester, those undergraduates who have met the credit hour and academic criteria are placed on the Dean's List. See the Dean's List policy for specific GPA and credit-hour requirements.

Program Performance – Upon completion of 45 credits, pre-nursing students in the Division of University Studies with non-competitive grade point averages (below 3.0) may receive an academic progress hold requiring them to see an academic advisor. These students will be required to meet with their advisor to discuss and develop an alternative academic plan as well as discuss strategies for improving their academic performance. Under the university’s Declaration of Major Policy, students not in a degree-granting program upon completion of 60 credits will be prevented from future registrations.

Transfer between Colleges within the University: Intra-University Transfer (IUT) into the Division of University Studies - Students currently enrolled in other schools or colleges who are reconsidering their choice of major or who wish to explore other academic options may process an intra-university transfer application to enter University Studies as an undeclared major. To transfer into University Studies, students must have a 2.0 cumulative grade point average and fewer than 60 credits completed (transfer and/or Temple credits combined). Students entering University Studies having completed between 45-59 credits can remain in University Studies up to two academic-year semesters if enrolled full-time or until completion of 60 credits if attending part-time. All students interested in transferring into the Division of University Studies must meet with an academic advisor to discuss this transfer.

Students transferring (IUT) into the Division of University Studies for pre-nursing should have a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 based on credits completed to be competitive for nursing school consideration and should develop an alternative academic plan with an advisor.

Requests for Intra-University Transfer into the Division of University Studies for pre-health information management will be reviewed in consultation with the department chairperson for Health Information Management. Students should maintain at least a 2.5 minimum cumulative GPA for program consideration.

Grievances - Students can bring grievances to the Director of Student Services. Grievances regarding instructors and grades are referred to the grievance protocol for the school/college offering the course.
