CSM students who complete a "Dual Admission Intent to Enroll" form will be governed by the Temple degree requirements in effect at the time of their Temple matriculation. 
  • For the Mechanical Engineering Articulation Agreement:
    • Once students transfer to Temple University, they shall be able to complete the Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering within four (4) regular semesters of full-time enrollment, assuming that no remedial or repeated courses are needed, that the recommended courses are successfully completed, and all applicable Temple grade and other requirements are met to the satisfaction of Temple.
