Those students anticipating graduation in the upcoming semester must submit an Intent to Graduate form to the Registrar. The Registrar's Office will make known the date by which the form must be submitted. Prompt submission of this form ensures that the student can be included in the proper graduating class. Failure to submit the form may delay graduation. A graduation fee will be assessed and billed to all students during the semester of their graduation, and it must be paid prior to the graduation date.
The Law School's graduation ceremony is held in May. January and prospective July graduates of the same year are welcome to participate. Details are made available to graduating students in late spring.
Temple University and the American Bar Association (through the Student Division) both offer health plans for law students.
Temple's Student Health Insurance Open Enrollment begins on August 19, 2013 and ends on October 18, 2013. The insurance coverage is effective September 1, 2013. For more information, go to the Human Resources web site.
Questions about the Temple Student Health Insurance Plans can be addressed to the Temple University Benefits Department at (215) 926-2270

Lockers are available to students on a first-come, first-served basis. They are located on the first floor of the law school. To request a locker, newly admitted students can go to Admissions Office in Barrack Hall, Room 101. If you are a returning a student please go to the Student Services Office in Barrack, Room 103 to get a new locker.
Lockers may be kept until graduation. Should a student decide not to keep a locker, the Operational Services Office must be informed no later than May 31. If a student takes a leave of absence, his/her locker will be reassigned. Upon returning from a leave, a student may apply for a new locker assignment. Temple University is not responsible for the contents of the lockers.
If you have any problems with your locker, please inform Operational Services 204-7862 in Klein 513.
Students who wish to study at another ABA approved, AALS member law school during their third year may apply a maximum of 30 transfer credits toward their Temple degree. To receive credit for work at another law school, a student must receive advance permission from the Associate Dean for Student Affairs and have all courses approved in advance.
Permission to study at another school in the second year requires Administrative Committee approval.
No credit will be accepted for courses in which the student received below the average grade required for graduation at the transferring institution, which generally means a 'C' or better. Pass/fail courses do not meet this requirement. No credit will be given for internships. The grades earned for a full semester at the transferring institution will not be calculated into the student's G.P.A. at Temple.
Students who wish to transfer credits from another law school to Temple Law School must have the visited school send an official transcript to the Temple Law School Registrar upon completion of each semester spent visiting.
Due to the differing graduation dates, it is possible that visiting at another school in the final year could delay a student's Temple graduation date and could affect the student's ability to take the July bar examination.
