Temple University Ambler offers full registration services to students. It is possible to meet with an advisor, sign up for courses, and pay bills entirely at Ambler. You may also process your registration and obtain a photo I.D. (photo identification may also be processed for staff) in one location.
Additional services include registering for classes requiring special authorization and requesting a Verification of Enrollment letter; readmissions; intra-university transfers; changing majors; changing names/addresses; and maintaining and transmitting student records in accordance with the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA). The first time you register, we’ll walk you through the process. After that, students should register through Self Service Banner on the Tuportal Webpage.

Students planning to register for classes should visit Temple's Course Schedule Web site at www.temple.edu/tu_courses.
If interested in Ambler Campus courses only, please view the Schedule of Classes above. These locations will help you determine which courses are being offered during the upcoming semester(s).
Advising is required prior to initial registration for students who must register at terminals and is strongly recommended for all students who register through Self Service Banner at TUportal. Students should contact their school, college, or department advisors for appointments or information. Generally, advisors and students review options and requirements, select courses, and complete and sign a registration form when necessary. For further information on academic advising, please see Academic Advising.
Self Service Banner at TUportal is Temple’s interactive, web-based student system that gives you real-time access to most of your records. You can use Self Service Banner to register for classes, add and drop courses, substitute one course for another, view your roster, find an available course, change your PIN, update your address information, make payments with your credit card (please note that Temple no longer accepts VISA), check your admissions application status, and more.
You can also view and print certain student records including undergraduate DARS reports, academic history in a composite format (similar to an unofficial transcript) or single-semester grade reports, financial aid application status and awards, account balances, and billing history. Your student I.D. and Temple PIN are required to access information.
Enrollment is not complete until payment of tuition and fees has been made and processed through the Department of the Bursar. Failure to satisfy financial obligations will result in a Financial hold placed on your account, and it will prevent you from obtaining official transcripts, grades, degrees, and diplomas; denial of the right to register for future sessions; and the assessment of late fees and collection costs.
Students who withdraw from classes by the end of a term's drop/add period (the end of the second week of the fall and spring semesters and summer sessions) will have the courses deleted from their rosters. This will relieve them of academic responsibility and in many instances financial responsibility associated with the course.
Students who withdraw from classes after the drop/add period are responsible for full payment of all tuition and fees. Unpaid tuition balances may be referred for collection and students may be held liable for paying all associated collection costs and/or legal fees.
Temple University Ambler and Temple University Fort Washington provide a diversity of graduate programs, which can be completed entirely at the respective campuses.
As with Undergraduate registration, Graduate registration is accomplished through Self Service Banner on the Tuportal Webpage.

Continuing Student Registration is the period in which all currently enrolled, matriculated students are required to register.
The Registrar's Office will post the priority registration information at www.temple.edu/registrar. An installment tuition payment plan is available for students who register for the fall or spring semesters during this period. See the Tuition and Fees section of the Bulletin as well as the printed Course Schedule for payment information.
Please note the following important information with respect to continuing registration for matriculated students (graduates and undergraduates) enrolled in the current semester:
- For fall semester, held mid-March to mid-April, with initial fall semester bills mailed beginning in late July and due mid-August.
- For spring semester, held mid-October to mid-November, with initial spring semester bills mailed beginning in December and due in January.
- Continuing, matriculated students (graduates and undergraduates) may continue to register beyond these dates but must register for their next semester by stated deadlines or risk a late registration penalty. Generally, they must be registered for the spring semester no later than the last day of the fall semester and for the fall semester by July 31. See the Continuing Student Registration brochure, Registration Dates & Information, and the Course Schedule for the specific deadlines in each fall and spring semester.
Open registration is available:
- For new students, re-enrolled students, and continuing students who could not register during continuing student registration
- For fall semester, held mid-April to late August
- For spring semester, held late November to mid-January
An installment tuition payment plan is available for most students who register during this period. See Tuition and Fees and the printed Course Schedule for payment information and registration dates.

Temple conducts late registration at the beginning of each semester or summer session. Registration appointments may be required.
A late fee of $100.00* will be assessed beginning the first day of classes in the fall and spring semesters and each summer session. No initial registrations or registration revisions will be processed after the first week of classes of the fall and spring semesters and second day of the summer sessions. These charges and restrictions apply to both initial and reinstated registrations and are subject to change.
* This fee is assessed earlier to continuing matriculated students who delay their registration. See Continuing Student Registration above.
Students may revise their schedules at any time after they have registered. Students who cannot register by the Web but wish to make changes in their course schedules should complete a Schedule Revision (Drop/Add) form. Approvals required vary according to the time the transaction is completed and the student's college.
These students must:
- Obtain a schedule revision form from their advising office.
- Complete form with appropriate signatures.
- Take the completed form to their campus registration office.
Students may not add courses or change course sections after the first week of fall and spring semesters and second day of the summer sessions. Course sections may be dropped through the second week of the fall and spring semesters and summer sessions. Withdrawing from a course within the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters or the summer session results in the deletion of the class from the student's roster. In some instances, it also relieves the student of the financial liability associated with the deleted course. If a refund is due, the provisions of the refund policy will apply.
See Schedule Revision and Withdrawal from Classes in Academic Policies and Regulations.
Student ID cards are produced on the Ambler campus by the Office of Academic Services.
An ID card is needed for entry into buildings, library privileges, and many University services.
Replacement cards are available from the Academic Services Office, West Hall Room 102. The cost of a replacement is $20.
Veterans may enroll as full-time or part-time students; however, benefits are based on enrollment status. The Veterans Coordinator in the Office of the University Registrar is available to answer questions concerning V.A. benefits at 215-204-7378.
If a student is on a non-immigrant visa, enrollment for a minimum of 12 credits each semester is required to meet immigration regulations. Non-resident tuition charges are assessed.
