We distribute a limited number of partial scholarships for high school students to art teachers and guidance counselors. Please see if your teacher or counselor has received one (we will email one to an educator if they are not on our list). Scholarship certificates include a coupon code to be entered at checkout during online registration. 
Note: Only one scholarship can be applied for each workshop/program. You will be permitted to register for a program until the first class day, but we cannot accept discount scholarships after the registration deadline, or apply a scholarship discount to your account after you have paid in full for a program. 

Beyond these partial scholarships, we do offer need-based scholarship aid to a limited number of high school students. Please contact us at for more information about need-based aid. 


Tyler Pre-College & Continuing Education reserves the right to cancel a workshop class due to low enrollment. Students will be given the option of enrolling in an alternate choice or receiving a full refund. We would like to stress that it is very helpful to the process if you enroll early! Please allow 45 days for the refund process if paying by check, and 14 days if paying by credit card.

Our course schedule is constantly being updated throughout the year so please check our program pages!


Tyler School of Art and Architecture will issue a full refund, less a $100 processing fee, provided a written withdrawal notice is emailed, mailed or faxed to the office of Pre-College & Continuing Education. This must be received two weeks prior to the first day of class (due on a Friday).
After the withdrawal date and prior to the first class, a 50% refund, less the $100 processing fee, will be issued following the above procedure. NO refunds will be issued after the first class meeting. Allow 45 days for refund if paying by check, and 14 days if paying by credit card.


High school students enrolled in any of Tyler's Pre-Collge summer programs are required to complete a few next steps to ensure they're ready for the first day of their program. 



Tyler Pre-College Programs offer on-campus residential arrangements through Temple University Housing for high school students attending our summer programs. Students must have completed their freshman year of high school in order to enroll in housing. Housing is available for students attending one, two or three sessions of our programs!



Educators can find high quality continuing education at Temple University to upgrade their knowledge and skills in the classroom and to comply with Pennsylvania's Act 48 requirements for certified educators.

How do Educators Comply with Act 48?

All Pennsylvania educators holding PA public certification must complete ongoing professional development every five years to comply with Act 48 requirements and to keep their certification active. Educators may choose one of the following ways to meet Act 48 requirements:

  • Complete six (6) credits of collegiate studies. Each semester college credit hour is equivalent to 30 hours of professional development education.
  • Participate in 180 hours of continuing professional education through Act 48-approved non-credit workshops, courses, conferences, and other educational activities.
  • Combine college credits and professional development education (Act 48-approved non-credit workshops, courses, conferences, and other educational activities) equivalent to 180 hours.
