You may request an official copy of your transcript through the Office of the University Registrar.
Continuing Studies students may qualify for a loan if they are seeking admission to a Temple degree program and they are required to take courses through Continuing Studies before they qualify for admission. Please see Student Financial Services for specific information about the requirements and limitations on these loan opportunities.
Continuing Studies students cannot register themselves online. Please see the registration page for details.
You can check for open seats in alternate sections of the same course, or you can be added to the waitlist for your preferred section by your academic advisor. Being on a wait list does not guarantee registration in a course, however.
If you already have a bachelor’s degree you may be able to obtain approval for up to 9 credits at the graduate level. For most graduate courses you will need permission from the professor or department. You can find faculty contact information in the Directory. For more information about non-degree graduate students please review the Continuing Studies Graduate Student Information.
If you would like to take a Math, English, or language course and do not have the pre-requisite to the course or do not have transferable credit for a course in that subject area you will need to take the placement assessment. When you schedule your initial appointment with a Continuing Studies advisor, they will discuss this with you.
Unofficial transcripts (or photo copies) are acceptable as long as they include: your name, the name of the school you attended, the names and numbers of the courses you took, your grades, and your GPA. We will NOT accept a cut and pasted version. (Meaning, please print it directly from your school’s student information system website rather than cutting and pasting it into a Word document). Please note, we will need a transcript from each school you attended.
Yes, you may take courses. You will need to schedule an appointment and bring with you copies of all previous transcripts.
Yes, the courses you take through Continuing Studies are the same courses degree students take. You can earn credits, grades, and a GPA through Continuing Studies.
Unfortunately, no, you will need to bring your GPA up to a 2.0 minimum elsewhere before you can take courses through Continuing Studies.
Unfortunately, no, if you’ve been denied admission to Temple undergraduate admissions you cannot take courses through Continuing Studies. You will need to improve your academic record elsewhere and then reapply for admission. There are two exceptions to this rule, (1) if you earned your bachelor’s degree elsewhere you can provide your transcript showing you’ve earned your degree, (2) if you are currently admitted in a degree program at another college or university and are coming to take classes as a Visiting Student with a cumulative GPA of a 2.0 or higher.
Generally, no. This is a firm rule with only a few exceptions and generally the student must have an excellent GPA (A/B average) and have an academically compelling reason. If you believe you meet this exception, please schedule an appointment with your advisor to discuss this further.
No, if you would like to take non-credit courses through Temple you can visit Non-Credit and Continuing Education for a complete listing of courses or call the Continuing Education Systems Office at 215-204-4866. Temple University offers a wide-range of professional development, personal enrichment, and lifelong learning programs to meet your educational goals.

We ask that you schedule an appointment. We are better able to serve you if we can devote the appropriate time and attention to your needs. An appointment gives us that ability. During our busy times you may need to schedule an appointment a week or two in advance. Please contact our front desk and our Peer Advisors will be glad to assist you. (They can also answer lots of quick questions over the phone). That said, if you have a quick question and are on campus, we will do our best to accommodate you.
If you have additional questions, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 215.204.2500.
