International Student and Faculty Services
All international students
from countries with a high incidence of tuberculosis are required to provide
Student Health Services with documentation that they have tested negative
for tuberculosis within the past year. Health Services provides TB testing.
If the results of the TB test are positive, a chest X-ray will be required.
For questions regarding this requirement before arrival to the University,
please write, fax, or call Student Health Services.
Note: The Office
of International Services has available a Handbook for International Students
and Scholars at Temple University that is extremely useful for international
students. The Handbook provides detailed information about housing, health
care, insurance, immigration, and other subjects. It is available at the
Office in 203B Vivacqua Hall.
of the graduate academic programs at Temple University operates in a somewhat
different manner, but there are some important procedures that are the
same throughout the University.
- A student's academic program is administered almost entirely by
the chairperson of the department and the Graduate Chair, under authorization
by the Graduate Board.
- The student will be assigned a graduate adviser by
the department or Graduate Chair. This adviser will guide the student
in his or her choice of courses and assign the student tasks if s/he
is a graduate assistant.
- Either the graduate adviser or another professor who
is interested in the subject matter of a student's thesis or dissertation
will aid that student in completing those tasks. At Temple University,
the written report of the major project done for the master's degree
is called a thesis, and the written report of the major project done
for the doctorate is called a dissertation.
- If a student has problems or questions concerning his/her
academic program, s/he should make an appointment to discuss these
with the graduate or thesis (dissertation) adviser. Any changes made
within the academic program must be approved by the Graduate Board.
has a written appeal process; students should contact their department/program
