Academic Residency Requirement

Last update: September 2014

Matriculation in or before Summer 2014

Temple University requires that all undergraduate degree candidates complete 30 hours of the last 45 hours of the degree or program as matriculated students at Temple University. If a matriculated student previously took Temple courses on a non-matriculated basis, those courses are counted towards this requirement.

To graduate with Latin Honors, a student must complete at least 60 semester hours of the program matriculated at Temple. Please see Dean's List and Graduation (Latin) Honors.

Students should consult the Academic Advising Center for additional academic residency requirements based upon their program of study.
