Visiting Students

If you are currently enrolled in a degree program at another college or university and would like to take courses to transfer back to your home institution, then you are a visiting student.

If you are able to come for an in person appointment we would love to meet you. We also understand you may be living far away from Temple while at school. You also have the option to mail or fax your paperwork.

Registration process as a visiting student

Note: Please gather all of the following necessary paperwork and send your registration materials all at once; please do not send partial or incomplete paperwork.

Visiting students are eligible to receive a Temple University identification (ID) card 24 hours after completing the initial registration through the Office of Academic Services. This card enables visiting students to access University support services and programs in the same way that Temple University students do. These services include academic and personal counseling, tutorial services in mathematics, science, and writing, in addition to many others. The Office of Academic Services can provide further information on specific services.

Financial Aid

For information and instructions, visiting students should contact the financial aid office at their home schools and Temple University Ambler's office of Student Financial Services. At Ambler, please call 267-468-8443.

Transcripts/Transfer of Credits to Home Institutions

The University will not send a transcript to home institutions automatically. Upon completion of the course(s), visiting students should contact the Office of the Academic Services at Ambler (West Hall Room 102, 267-468-8248) in order to request an official transcript.
