The College of Liberal Arts Advising Center is dedicated to helping students understand their academic requirements, deadlines, and policies of Temple University. Because of this, we have developed this web page of Advising Tools that are designed to help students in each of these areas.
Communicating with the CLA Advising Center
At Temple University, e-mail is the official means of communication. When using this official means of communication, it is important to follow certain procedures in order to make sure that your message is being conveyed clearly and you are able to receive the quickest response possible.
Registering for Classes
Continuing matriculated students in good academic standing (minimum 2.0 GPA in the previous fall or spring semester and cumulative GPA) can register via Self Service Banner.
All students who have Unsatisfactory Academic Performance must meet with an advisor for registration. Re-enrolled students will recive an email from the CLA advising center in regards to their registration.
During the registration process, you may encounter circumstances that require special approval and the appropriate approval forms. These circumstances also require manual registration by the Academic Advising Center. These include the following: Closed Section Approval, Credit Level, Credit/No Credit (Audit Only), Overload, Special Authorization, and Time Conflict.
Note that no changes will be processed unless the student presents the request in person and waits for processing and a receipt of the transaction.
Visit the Undergraduate Bulletin to find out if you have enough credits and have taken the correct courses in order to graduate. The Advising Center has composed a document outlining the requirements for graduation from the College of Liberal Arts. This document shows the departments within the College of Liberal Arts, the semester hour requirements for graduation, the language requirement, and more.
