Academic Advising

Non-Degree Students

It is not necessary to apply and be admitted to a degree program in order to register for credit courses. Non-degree students take courses for professional development, personal enrichment, or eventual application to a Temple University degree program. Visiting students from other colleges or universities are also non-degree students.

To learn more about taking courses as a non-degree student, please contact the TUCC Advising Coordinator. Office hours are scheduled so that you may meet with an adviser during your lunch hour or after work. You may also discuss transfer options and career-related topics.

Tuesday: 10:00 a.m. to 6:45 p.m.
