Student Information

General Information

Most of Temple University's schools and colleges offer credit courses at TUCC. To enroll in undergraduate courses students must have earned a high school diploma or a G.E.D. Students who have attended another college or university must have earned a GPA of at least 2.0 and provide a transcript (official or unofficial) of their previous academic work.

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.

Monday through Thursday: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Friday: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Call 215-204-4358 for more information or to schedule an appointment. Appointments are recommended.

TUCC advising is made more convenient with the online (virtual) option, Webex, a web-based conferencing software that you can easily access without establishing an account. To schedule a virtual advising appointment, contact tuccadv@temple.edu and request an appointment time. We look forward to meeting with you online.
