Since Bucks County Community College and Temple University have a direct affiliation, it made the transfer process seamless for financial planning major Mary Miller (Class of 2023).
In addition to having a program that prepares her to become a Certified Financial Planner, Mary “found Fox student organizations like Women in Finance and the Temple Financial Planning Association to be beneficial because these connections and building a network, practice my communication skills and the exposure to internship and job opportunities.”
Are there special transfer support services?
Yes! The Transfer Mentor Program is designed to facilitate your successful transition to campus. Transfer students are matched with a Transfer Ambassador, a current student who transferred to Temple who will help you find your place here on campus. The program includes one-on-one meetings with your mentor and monthly social opportunities with other Temple transfers.
Can I still study abroad as a transfer student?
Study abroad opportunities are open to transfer students. If you can't commit to an entire semester, consider a Fox School Global Immersion Program. Global Immersions are only a week to 10 days. Grant funding is available for Immersion Programs if you qualify.
Entrepreneurship major Vy Trinh, Class of 2025, transferred to the Fox School from Montgomery County Community College. She chose to transfer to Temple because of the diverse student population and the study-abroad opportunities.
