Transfer to the College of Liberal Arts

If you’ve already completed college credits after high school, you’ll find a wide variety of flexible degree programs to choose from when transferring to Temple University’s College of Liberal Arts. Whether transferring has always been a part of your plan or you suddenly find yourself ready to make a change, the College of Liberal Arts is here to help you achieve your educational goals.

Planning for Transfer

Every transfer student is unique—your story is unlike anyone else’s. Determining how the credits you’ve already earned can apply to a bachelor’s degree isn’t always intuitive, but the College of Liberal Arts is dedicated to making things as clear as possible as you take this next step.

Temple University has partnered with many two-year institutions in the Philadelphia area and across the country, making the transfer planning process transparent. If you began your college journey at one of our partner institutions, we encourage you to check out the Dual Admissions, GenEd-to-GenEd and program-to-program agreements.

Not attending one of our partner schools? That’s OK! To see how your credits will transfer to Temple, use our Transfer Equivalency Tool.

Transfer from another Temple School or College
