Transfer Agreements

To better encourage and facilitate the transfer of Reading Area Community College students to Temple University, Temple and Reading Area Community College have established the following transfer agreements:

Dual Admissions

The Dual Admissions agreement between Temple and Reading Area Community College conditionally admits students to Temple at the same time they are admitted to a community college, and provides the opportunity for merit scholarships to Temple for those students. Students may enroll in the Dual Admissions program before attaining 30 transferable credits, including any colleges previously attended. Students are then admitted to Temple upon attaining their associate's degrees at the community college. Click here for more details about Dual Admissions with Reading Area Community College
