How the Summer & Fall URP application process works:

Apply online by Thursday 3/30 by 10PM

Approved students will be notified by end of day April 10th 2017

Students can then contact the faculty members who they are interested in doing research with and ask to set up an interview.
Faculty members will select the student(s) who they wish to work with and will notify them.
When selection is complete the URP Approval Form must be completed and submitted.

Summer URP Approval forms must be submitted by 4/26 to Rose McGinnis
Fall URP Approval forms can be submitted before you leave for summer break or when you return by 9/6.
We HIGHLY recommend that you submit your Fall URP Approval form before the Fall semester begins.

In order for a CST student to be approved for URP
They must have a CST GPA of 2.75 (which includes withdrawn CST courses and repeated CST courses)
Students must have or be completing two semesters in CST

Important notes for Summer URP:
(1) Students are eligible for a stipend of up to $4000 based on their participation in the summer research program. You will record your hours and be placed on the Temple Payroll  - please remember you must pay taxes on these funds
(2) There are no course credits awarded for Summer research
(3) You can NOT take courses while you are doing Summer URP - it is to be like a full time job so taking classes
would take away from your research experience.

Important notes for Fall URP:
(1) Students must register for a research course in their Fall 2017 schedule.
(2) Students who continue from Summer to Fall must submit a Fall URP Approval Form to continue
(3) Students are expected to work at least 10 to 12 hours a week in the lab or on their research
