I got in because of a high SAT score. (probably)
I didn't do any extracurriculars in high school so at the very least they aren't a requirement to get in.

GPA above 3Dec 17 2016Unknown
GPA above 3.0 will most likely get you in. I had a 3.9 and a 1760 SAT.

I was prepared with a high GPA from my high school (3.8) and materials for the specific department that I was accepted into.
Barely anythingAug 27 2016Economics
Barely anything. They are a diploma mill. They just want your money.

Japanese people I talked to in Japan laugh at Temple. It's not a good school.


When I applied as a transfer, I got acceptedJul 30 2015Finance
When I applied as a transfer, I got accepted two weeks later once I submitted all of my materials. All I needed to submit was my college and high school transcripts. (I didn't need my SAT scores). As far as my transfer credits went, everything transferred, except for one class. However, if you get the syllabus from the class and submit it to your college for review, you can appeal the class. For me atleast, it worked out and I'm on track to still graduate on time. If you're transferring from another college, you definitely need a strong GPA (esp. for Fox) because spots are very limited. Roughly 40% of the applicants who applied to transfer into Fox were accepted the year I transferred in.
SAT: 1800 Female
