Temple values and welcomes international students who enrich the campus culturally and intellectually. More than 1,700 students from over 127 countries have chosen to receive their education at Temple. The University warmly welcomes students from around the globe.
Many of the services designed specifically for international students originate in the Office of International Services. This is where the planning takes place for international students' orientation, and where you will find a lounge stocked with periodicals from around the world. The office also organizes social events and trips for international students, and provides a team of peer and professional advisors to help with immigration and personal issues. To learn about the services and support available to international students, visit International Student and Scholar Services (ISSS) at Temple University.
Undergraduate International Applicants
Undergraduate international students must complete the International Student Application. An individual is considered an international student if he/she holds (or will need to obtain) a non-immigrant visa, including a student visa, visitor visa, or exchange visa. International students are required to complete a Financial Support Statement as part of the International Student Application.
An applicant not born in the U.S., but who is a permanent resident, naturalized citizen, or refugee, may use the regular application. Below are the minimum required test scores for most Boyer programs. Programs with different minimum required scores can be found in the Bulletin for each program under the Admissions tab.
