The considerations and requirements for the Temple Rome Entry Year application are the same as those of Temple University Main Campus.

If you have already been accepted to Temple and would like to change your campus to Rome, please email so we can assess your eligibility. There are no extra application materials required. Admitted students requesting to start their degree at the Rome Campus must:

  • Be accepted into one of our eligible degree programs;
  • Be 18 years of age by the program start date OR have a legal guardian located in Rome. 

The deadline to switch to the Rome Campus for admitted students requiring an Italian visa is May 1. The deadline for EU passport holders is May 20

Application Deadlines for First-Year Students

  • Applications open: Aug. 1
  • Early Action: Nov. 1
  • Regular Decision: Feb. 1 (extended to Mar. 18)
  • FAFSA priority filing deadline: Feb. 1
  • Decision deadline for admitted students: May 1

How to Apply

1. Choose your deadline.

Decide if you’d like to apply Early Action (Nov. 1) or Regular Decision (Feb. 1). Learn more about what these options mean on our Admissions page

2. Consider your standardized test scores. 

Students may choose to submit their test scores when applying to Temple. We are a test-optional school, and choosing to not submit your scores does not negatively impact your application. If you are an international student, please review the requirements for English Language Proficiency Tests.

If you choose not to submit your scores, you will apply using the Temple Option. If you believe an SAT or ACT score would complement your application, you should submit your scores. Standardized test scores are otherwise entirely optional and in no way required for admission. Learn more about the Temple Option and if it’s the right choice for you.

3. Apply using the Common Application.

Temple exclusively uses the Common Application. Be sure to​ select "Rome Campus" when choosing the campus that you're applying to.

After submitting the Common Application, you’ll need to submit additional information through TUportal, including your self-reported high school transcript, confirm your SAT or ACT scores have been received, if you chose to submit them, and any additional information or materials you may be asked to submit.

4. Notify Us.

Notify the Temple Rome campus of your intention to join the Temple Rome Entry Year program by emailing
