Temple University’s Risk Management and Education Abroad and Overseas Campuses want to provide guidance and best practices to Temple administrative units who are supporting Temple sponsored international programming.
Steps for requesting approval for a Temple sponsored program
Any Temple sponsored program must meet a set of programmatic standards in order to be considered for approval. The request for approval should come in advance of students being informed that the program has been approved and prior to any financial commitments being made.
As a first step, we recommend sponsoring administrative units speak with their counterparts onsite in order to obtain relevant information that will be needed during the approval process.
A Temple administrator or designee can apply for approval at any point in time prior to the start of the program. Once a Temple sponsored program is approved, it is approved for the academic year and does not need to be approved to run each term. Submissions for approval will be reviewed on a rolling basis outlined below.
After reviewing the submission, proposers will receive a notification indicating the status of the request. Any programs that are approved will continue to be evaluated periodically prior to departure to confirm that the basic program criteria continue to be met or to determine if adjustments need to be made to the program.
Upon receiving the electronic approval, proposers will receive a unique URL for their participants to complete the registration process.
