Advising is required prior to initial registration for students who must register at terminals, and is strongly recommended for all students who register through the DiamondLine (215.204.2525) or OWLnet at owlnet.temple.edu. Students should contact their school, college or department advisers for an appointment or information. Generally, advisers and students review options and requirements, select courses, and complete and sign a registration form when necessary.
Also read General Registration Information provided by the Office of Academic Records.
Enrollment is not complete until payment of tuition and fees has been made and processed through the Department of Student Financial Services. Failure to satisfy financial obligations will result in cancellation of a student's current registration; withholding of official transcripts, degrees and diplomas; denial of the right to register for future sessions; and the incurring of late fees.
Students who withdraw from classes by the end of the drop/add period (the end of the second week of the fall and spring semesters and the third day of the summer session) will have the withdrawn course deleted from their rosters.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 held liable for paying all associated
collection costs and/or legal fees.
Continuing Student Registration is the period in which all currently enrolled, matriculated students are required to register. A brochure is mailed to currently enrolled students each semester which outlines the registration schedule and contains important information regarding advising. A deferred tuition payment plan is available for students who register during this period. See Tuition and Fees and the Class Schedule for payment information.
Temple conducts late registration at the beginning of each semester or summer session. Appointments may be required.
A late fee of $50.00* 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 12th week of classes during the fall and spring semesters, and after the fourth week 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 phone or 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. See the Schedule Revision Matrix in the Class Schedule for information.
These students must:
A charge of $10.00 is assessed for schedule revision after the first week of classes during the fall and spring semesters and after the first two days of the summer sessions. This fee is assessed each day that a revision is transacted.
