Students receive academic advising directly from their school and college advising offices, and after they have declared a major, from faculty or staff advisors in academic departments. Students are urged to be in touch with their advising centers early and often to resolve questions about degree requirements, course selection, graduation checks, and many other academic matters.
Students who are still deciding about a major, those in several pre-health fields and non-matriculated students can receive advising help from the Division of University Studies.
Academic Advising Mission:
In support of the mission of Temple University, academic advisors work collaboratively with students, faculty, staff, and community partners to meet the diverse, evolving needs of all students within our university community. It is our purpose to provide quality advising programs and services that support students in achieving their personal, academic, and career goals. By helping students interpret university policy, providing referrals to appropriate resources, and assisting students in creating individual plans for academic success, Temple advisors encourage our students to engage in and to take ownership of their education.
