Valencia College (FL)-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.
