Senior Scholars

Our alumni are the pride of Temple University and we value your continued support. As you may know, the Office of Alumni Relations has recently concluded a comprehensive assessment and strategic planning process with the goal of aligning existing resources with programmatic priorities. As always, our aim is to enrich the lives of our more than 308,000 living alumni through meaningful and relevant programs around the globe.

As a result of that process, it has been decided that the Senior Scholars program will now be administered through University College. University College is home to a numerous non-credit and continuing education programs, such as the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at our Center City Campus, the Office of Non-Credit and Continuing Education (ONCE) at our Ambler, Fort Washington, and Center City campuses, as well as the Real Estate Institute (REI) and the Office of Off-Campus Programs and Training.

If you have any questions or concerns, University College is available to guide you at 215-204-4866.

Alumni Education

Lifelong Learning for Alumni Age 50 and Older

Temple Senior Scholars invites alumni and their spouses or partners age 50 and older to return to Temple's vibrant educational community. For hundreds of Temple alumni each year, the Senior Scholars program means no tests and no grades, just the joy of learning with Temple's diverse students and acclaimed faculty. Choose from a variety of courses in subjects as diverse as American studies and anthropology, history and horticulture, political science and theater. Classes are offered weekdays and evenings at Main Campus, Center City and Ambler.
