Fly to Philly Program
Last update: March 28, 2022
To enable TUJ students to accumulate even more global experience, qualified students can study at Temple University main campus in Philadelphia for 1-3 consecutive semesters by paying regular tuition at TUJ. The Fly to Philly Program (F2P) was created in an effort to make overseas study even more affordable for all degree-seeking TUJ students. By studying in both Tokyo and Philadelphia, our students can truly experience an international education. We are confident that the dual campus approach will enrich the university experience and provide our students with a springboard to a fulfilling global career.
- Fully matriculated at TUJ (Bridge program and non-matriculated students are not eligible)
- Have studied for at least one semester at TUJ
- In good academic standing at the university (This includes the semester before going to main campus. Academic Warning, Academic Probation and Visa Probation students are not eligible)
- Cumulative and current GPA is 2.0 or higher
- Clear of any conduct or disciplinary issues at TUJ
- Clear of any holds at TUJ (e.g. financial hold, visa hold)
- Must maintain full-time status (12-18 credits) each semester while at main campus
In addition, to ensure academic success at main campus, it is strongly recommended that students have:
- Successfully completed at least one semester of full-time coursework (12+ credits) at TUJ
- Completed the ENG 802/812 requirement
At the conclusion of the F2P program, TUJ students may choose to transfer to main campus permanently. At this point, students will pay regular Temple main campus tuition according to their major and residency status. This Change of Program (CoP) process is overseen by TUJ Academic Advising Center (AAC). For more information, contact at AAC@tuj.temple.edu.
F2P students are eligible for all TUJ scholarships for continuing students. Japanese citizens (and permanent residents of Japan) wishing to study at main campus are encouraged to apply for the Watanabe Scholarship by the US-Japan Council. There are other study abroad scholarship opportunities, and students should research and apply on their own. Your home town/country may have their own scholarship program to support study abroad.
