Temple University Continuing Education (TUCE) provides a broad administrative framework to present and support a wide range of University offerings not falling within the province of typical undergraduate and graduate degree work on Temple campuses. It acts as an umbrella organization promoting all of the continuing education possibilities available at Temple. It assists all of the schools and colleges in making companies and individuals in the region aware of the multiplicity of opportunities for adults at Temple. In addition to credit programs, TUCE develops and offers a wide range of non-credit programs.
Course offerings of TUCE respond to the differing needs of adults seeking additional education. Some offerings are of common interest to all, such as writing and general computer skills. Others, tailored for those adults who wish to change their work situation, focus on new skill and knowledge development. Course work is also designed for adults who wish to maintain their current work position in a profession that requires re-certification to maintain appropriate licenses. Course offerings also are geared to those adults seeking personal enrichment as their primary goal.
The form of TUCE programming includes full degrees, degree completion programs, credit certificates, non-credit professional certificates and non-credit personal enrichment courses. TUCE presents offerings at the following Temple sites: Ambler, Temple University Center City, Harrisburg and a variety of public and private off-campus sites through the auspices of Extension Services.

Main Campus Continuing Education
The Main Campus Office of Continuing Education is the University's central office serving non-matriculated students. Non-matriculated students are those who have not been formally admitted to a degree program. The Office serves a variety of students including adults returning to school for undergraduate or graduate courses; professionals updating their skills; students taking courses to meet admissions requirements into graduate or professional schools; qualified students seeking undergraduate admission; students taking courses for personal enrichment, and visiting students. There is no formal application to enroll as a Continuing Education student, however, first-time enrollers are asked to provide documentation of education completed (high school diploma, GED certificate, college transcripts, college diploma).
See Policies and Regulations for non-matriculated students for more information.
Temple University Center City (TUCC) brings the educational resources of Temple University to downtown Philadelphia. The concentration of corporate offices, professional firms, and public agencies in the immediate area make it highly convenient for students to continue their education after work. Most graduate and undergraduate courses are offered in the evening or on Saturdays.

Most of Temple Universitys schools and colleges offer courses at TUCC during the academic year. You may take one or a few courses here without formally applying for admission to the University. If you choose to enroll in a degree program, you may complete selected full degrees at TUCC.
