Rowan College at Gloucester County-Temple Transfer Information
Generally, Temple accepts academic, college-level courses beyond the developmental level completed with a grade C or better, from schools with regional accreditation. Credit is only awarded in academic subjects with a corresponding Temple department. Duplicate credit in the same course is not awarded in any case. Whenever possible, credit is allowed for courses completed more than 10 years before the date of admission. Courses evaluated for transfer from colleges and universities with different credit systems (e.g. quarter hours, units, etc.) are converted to semester hours (i.e., 2 quarter hour credits are equivalent to 1.5 semester hour credits; 3 quarter hour credits are equivalent to 2.0 semester hour credits; 4 quarter hour credits are equivalent to 2.5 semester hour credits). For more information about transfer credit evaluation see: Credit Evaluation.
To better encourage and facilitate the transfer of Rowan College at Gloucester County students to Temple University, Temple and Rowan College at Gloucester County have established the following transfer agreement:
GenEd-to-GenEd and Core-to-Core Transfer Agreements
GenEd-to-GenEd and Core-to-Core Transfer agreements accept -- upon Temple evaluation and approval -- the general education requirements of approved associate degrees in lieu of most of Temple's Core or GenEd requirements. Students entering Temple with an approved Associate degree are identified upon admission to or enrollment in the University and their fulfillment of the General Education by a GenEd Transfer Agreement is noted on pertinent student records.
The following Rowan College at Gloucester County associate degrees are approved:
Core-to-Core: One of the following degrees received in or after May 1985: Any Associate of Arts; Associate of Science in these fields if and only if the county college certifies to Temple's Office of First Year and Transfer Programs that the student has taken the correct distribution of courses: Arts and Science, Biology, Business Administration, Chemistry, or Human Development. Effective for students entering Temple for the first time for Spring 2001 and after. Other Associate in Science degrees, and Associate in Applied Science degrees, are not approved for Core-to-Core Transfer.
