How to Use the 1998-99 Bulletin

The Undergraduate Bulletin is produced by the Office of the Provost to present specific information about undergraduate academic programs with some general information about Temple University. Although every effort is made to provide complete and accurate information, the descriptions of programs and policies are announcements only and in no way serve as a contract. Because the Bulletin's publishing process must begin months prior to the beginning of the academic year, programs, courses, and other information are subject to change.

Temple undergraduate students are the largest group of Bulletin readers, but it also is used by prospective students, their families, and Temple faculty and administrators. Additional information is available in other University publications. In the Bulletin, these are referred to in italics. References to other sections in the Bulletin are made in bold type.

If you are a prospective student, you also should read the Undergraduate Admission Application and the Prospectus or brochure from the Temple school or college in which you are interested. These are available from the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. See Undergraduate Admissions.

If you are a new student at Temple this year, you have obtained this Bulletin at your New Student Workshop. You should retain it since it contains the requirements of programs into which you will be enrolling. For that reason, your advisers may refer to 1998-99 as your "Bulletin year."

This year the Table of Contents outlines in greater detail where information may be found in this Bulletin.

The General Information section is information of interest to all undergraduates. It has information about Temple University, its many campuses, degrees granted, its policies, admissions procedures, registration procedures and dates, and financial aid and scholoarship possibilities. For additional information, contact the various offices such as admissions, or a particular school. Many detailed brochures, packets and handbooks are available.

Academic Services amd Programs informs students of additional opportunities for enrichment and help pursuing a rich academic experience.

Campus Life and Student Services lists some of the help Temple gives to make each student's life at Temple unforgetably wonderful and stimulating.

The Schools and Colleges sections of this Bulletin provide information about the goals, admissions requirements and other regulations of each school, detailed academic information concerning programs offered and degree requirements, support programs and services, faculty, and course descriptions for courses to be offered in 1998-99. However, course descriptions for the University Honors Program, Military Science (ROTC), Aerospace Studies (Air Force ROTC), and Intensive English Language Program (IELP) are listed with the program descriptions.

Students may also wish to see a school's and college's Prospectus or brochure for more information. These are available in the Office of Undergraduate Admissions or the main office of the School or College.

Information about graduate or professional degrees or training, online learning opportunities and non-credit courses are either not covered or just mentioned. More detailed information is available in other Temple publications.
