1) Register for a special experience just for admitted Ambler students.

As an admitted student, you and your family will be invited to join us for special admitted student experience designed to answer your questions and welcome you to the Ambler Campus community. More information will be sent, as it becomes available, to your TUmail account.

2) Get your financial aid in order.

If you are a U.S. citizen or eligible nonresident, submit your FAFSA application by the Feb. 1 priority deadline. Visit Student Financial Services for more information. If you have filed your FAFSA, your financial aid offer will be available in your TUportal account under the “Cost and Aid” tab.

3) Choose Temple!

To reserve your spot and confirm your intent to enroll at Temple, you must submit a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $200. We encourage first-year students to submit your deposit by May 1, or within two weeks if you were admitted after April 15. Transfer students are encouraged to submit their deposit as soon as possible. To pay your deposit, log in to TUportal and review the Next Steps channel.

4) If needed, request a room in University Housing.

If you would like a room in University Housing (available at Main Campus), you must first submit the $200 enrollment deposit, as well as the $250 housing deposit. Once you submit your enrollment and housing deposits, you can select your own housing and meal plan through our online selection process, which is available in MyHousing via TUportal. Housing selection will start on April 1, but you can explore residence hall options at any time. Learn more about housing and the Housing Selection Process

5) Participate in New Student Orientation and register for classes.

Complete the required Next Steps in your TUportal so you can register for New Student Orientation, designed to assist in your transition and get your Temple Ambler experience off to a great start! After submitting your deposit, you will receive information on completing the Temple Preview. Upon completion of Temple Preview, a member of the Ambler Campus Advising and Student Success team will be in touch to schedule your orientation/advising appointment so you can register for your Temple classes. Learn more about orientation.

6) Send your final transcripts

We do consider final grades. Ask your current high school or college to send us your final transcript. Transfer students, please note that we need your final transcript so all credits can be evaluated prior to meeting with an academic advisor.
