Advising is required prior to initial registration for students who must register at terminals, and is recommended for all students who register by touch tone phone. Students should contact their colleges/schools, departments, or advisers for an advising appointment or information. Generally, advisers and students review options and requirements, select courses, and complete and sign a course request card.
Enrollment is not complete until payment of all 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 and diplomas, denial of the right to register for future sessions, and the incurring of late fees.
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 students are required to register. A brochure is mailed to currently enrolled students each semester outlining the registration schedule and containing important information regarding advising. A deferred tuition payment plan is available for most students who register during this period. See Tuition and Fees and Directory of Classes.
Students may arrange to pay their tuition, room and board, and fees (not including books or other personal expenses) in installments. See Special Payment Plans in the Tuition and Fees section of theBulletin.
Temple conducts late on-line 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. See the Office of Academic Records' web pages, http://www.temple.edu/registrar/
Students may revise their schedules at any time after they have registered.
Students who cannot register by phone but wish to make changes in their course schedules (course rosters) must 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:
Students may not add courses or change course sections after the first week of classes unless the class has not met for the second time. Withdrawing from a course within the first two weeks of the fall and spring semesters or the first three days of the summer session entails no academic penalty, and no record of the class appears on the student's transcript.
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. If a refund is due, the provisions of the refund policy will apply.
Student ID cards are produced on the Main Campus by the Office of Student Academic Records during New Student Workshops registration sessions and at scheduled times throughout the semester. Call (215) 204-1131 and select "information on obtaining a student ID" for instructions and scheduled hours. An ID card is needed for entry into buildings, library privileges, and many University services. ID cards must be validated at the beginning of each new semester. Validation will occur only after a student has presented a paid tuition receipt. Validation stickers are available in the Office of Student Academic Records, Second Floor, Conwell Hall; the Office of Student Financial Services, Ground floor, Conwell Hall and Cash Operations, First floor, Conwell Hall.
ID cards also are issued on the Ambler Campus and Health Sciences Center and on scheduled days and times at the Center City Campus.
