To register for classes, start in the Student Tools tab on TUPortal. Under the “Registration” channel select “Add or Drop Classes” and then select the term. This brings you to the Add or Drop classes page. There are step by step video tutorials for the registration system in TUPortal.
Registration for the next semester or summer session occurs during “priority registration” period. Your day within the priority registration is based on your total earned Temple credits to date (this does not include credits you are currently registered for). The schedule for registration is emailed to students every semester and can be found on the Registrar Office’s website.
There are different options available to meet this checkpoint depending on if you are a first-year, sophomore, junior or senior. The “consult your advisor” checkpoint needs to be met each fall/spring by a pre-determined deadline listed on the Fly-in-4 webpage. We offer Fly-in-4 Fridays. Fly-in-4 Fridays are designed for students to satisfy this checkpoint.
You will need to retake the course if it is required for your major. It is beneficial to determine why you struggled in your course in order to determine if you were initially prepared to start in the course or if it would be beneficial to take a different course prior to your second attempt at a required course. It is important to understand the repeat policy as you are limited on the number of attempts per course. Plan to meet with your academic advisor to discuss why you think you struggled and to come up with a plan to improve.
Declaring a major, minor or certificate
All students who wish to declare/add or change a primary major within the College of Science and Technology should have a cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.00 or higher. For students in their first semester at Temple (first time freshmen and transfers) the GPA requirement is waived.
Current CST students
In order to declare majors, minors or certificates within the College of Science and Technology, a CST student must meet with an advisor. To schedule an appointment:
1. Log into TUPortal
2. Go to Student Tools
3. Scroll to Appointment System
4. Click on the Schedule tab
5. Follow the prompts
In order to declare a CST major as your primary major, a non-CST student must complete the CST Change of Program (COP) requirements on Canvas.
To access the Canvas site please select Temple University – Change of Program.
1. You will need to log in using your Accessnet username and password.
2. Select “Join this Course” in the upper right corner.

In order to add or drop a CST minor or certificate, a non-CST student can email email@example.com to make an appointment.
Human Anatomy & Physiology (KINS 1223 & 1224) is offered out of the College of Public Health. The majority of students in the College of Public Health are required to take this sequence. To ensure that the students who are required to take this course for their major are able to do so, a significant amount of sections of these courses are completely reserved for students in the College of Public Health. There are a limited number of sections that are open to students in any major. You can determine whether a section is restricted by clicking on the CRN for a specific section. If the section is restricted, you will see a notation stating the restriction. You may register or waitlist for a section that is open to all majors.
Other options to consider:
Will your professional school accept Human A&P that doesn’t require a lab? If so, you might be able to sign up for KINS 1221 (fall only) and KINS 1222 (spring only).
Will your professional school accept Mammalian Anatomy and Mammalian Physiology? If so, you could take BIO 2233 (fall only) and BIO 3334 (spring only), as long as you meet the prerequisites.

Students are encouraged to discuss pursuing an excused withdrawal with an advisor to learn more about possible academic and/or financial implications and whether your situation meets the conditions.

We offer same-day appointments (SDAs) Monday through Friday. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are having issues scheduling an appointment.
“ANDs” separate each requirement, and “ORs” show options within each of those requirements. “ORs” make reading the prerequisites complex but they allow students who have bypassed early requirements, or taken variant courses, to not be flagged every time they register for a course that requires that early requirement.
The simple prerequisite of a C in Math 1021 is required for courses such as Math 1022. Note that one can demonstrate completion of this by any of the following:
- Passing Math 1021 at the C level at TU (the distinction of where it was taken is due to the C minimum grade);
- Having a test code that shows you have passed Math 1021 in transfer at the C level;
- Passing a higher level mathematics course; or
- Placing into a higher level mathematics course.
