The Academic Policies section of the current Temple Undergraduate Bulletin describes a number of policies that relate to Credit for Prior Learning.  Official transcripts for courses from other institutions and official score reports should be sent directly to the Office of Undergraduate Admissions. The Undergraduate Admissions office determines which credits will transfer to the University (See the Admissions: Transfer Credit section of the Undergraduate Bulletin), whereas the academic unit to which the student has been admitted determines how credits will be used to fulfill degree requirements in a student's program of study.
