Admission Status

Students are admitted as either:

1. Matriculated students

Students intending to complete a degree from Temple University.

2. Permanent non-matriculated students

Students who plan to take fewer than 30 credits at TUJ without earning a degree from Temple University (includes summer-only and visiting students from other universities).

3. Conditional non-matriculated students

Degree-seeking students who are conditionally admitted to the Undergraduate Program (includes Bridge Program students).


  • Conditionally admitted students will matriculate upon successful completion of the terms of their acceptance. All other non-matriculated students must apply for matriculation if they wish to complete more than 30 credits at TUJ.
  • Accepted students will be allowed to defer enrollment up to three semesters past their original semester of admission without being required to complete a new application for admission. Students who wish to defer to a future semester must notify TUJ in writing of their intention. Any TUJ merit scholarships awarded would be forfeited and a student would need to request to be reconsidered for scholarships for their new semester of admission.
  • If students are unable to complete any stage of the admissions process (including the visa application) in a timely manner, TUJ reserves the right to cancel or defer a student’s admission.
