Prospective Students

Apply to Temple

Temple University, with its diverse student body and commitment to access, is a welcoming environment for students with a disability. We strive to create an inclusive learning environment where are all members of the community are valued.

Students with a disability considering Temple should follow the standard application procedures. Many of your questions regarding admissions can be answered by consulting the Undergraduate Admissions or Graduate Admissions offices.

Disability Resources and Services (DRS) encourages you to use any necessary accommodations when taking standardized tests such as the SATs or ACTs. You can also consider the Temple Option, an admissions path for talented students whose potential for academic success is not accurately captured by standardized test scores. Students who choose the Temple Option submit self-reflective, short-answers to a few specially designed, open-ended questions instead of their SAT or ACT scores.

The presence of a disability is not considered in admissions. Do not send your documentation of disability to the Admissions Office.

Prospective students are encouraged to meet with a DRS coordinator to learn more about resources and services available at Temple University. Please call 215-204-1280 or email DRS to schedule an information session.
