Steps for Enrollment in Dual Admissions Program
- Visit the RACC Transfer Office to fill out a Dual Admission Intent Form before completing 30 college credits. You will be pre-screened to make sure you are eligible for the program.
- Within the semester you are accepted into the dual admission program, you will receive a conditional admission letter from Temple University.
- In the semester before you are planning to begin attending Temple University, you must pick up a Dual Admission application from the RACC Transfer Office. This form should be sent to Temple along with official RACC transcripts by June 1 for Fall admission or November 1 for Spring Admission.
- Request official transcripts from any other college you have attended, as well as from your high school.
- To be considered for a dual admission scholarship, a final transcript reflecting degree earned and final GPA must be sent from RACC to Temple Admissions.
Dual admissions agreements are non-binding for students. If you decide not to attend Temple after signing an Intent Form, you can cancel your dual admissions agreement by sending written notification to both Temple University and RACC.
