Student Support Services
In keeping with its holistic approach towards medicine, the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University offers students a myriad of support services that range from academic and financial to personal and social.
Student support—whether it is formal help with study skills or time management or an informal talk with a professor to elucidate a lesson—is built into the fabric of a Temple education. Led by the associate dean for student affairs, our student support network includes faculty advisors, deans and individual faculty members. The Office of Student Affairs offers confidential support and counseling regarding financial assistance, academic progress, personal and social needs and concerns, and career counseling.
Managing student indebtedness is a major goal of the school. A dedicated financial aid coordinator provides information to applicants on interview day and works closely with students the summer before matriculation. A thorough, structured program of financial counseling and debt management continues throughout a student’s time at Temple.
A limited number of merit and need-based scholarships are available to incoming students. Both merit scholarships and need based scholarships are awarded starting in the spring prior to matriculation. Merit scholarships are awarded to the most academically qualified students; need-based scholarships are awarded to accepted students with extreme financial need, as determined by the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). Most awards are renewable for all four years as long as students maintain good academic standing.
