HOURS

The academic advising office is open Monday through Friday, 8:30 AM to 5 PM. Our office follows the university schedule, meaning it is closed on the days the university is not open for business.

MAKE AN APPOINTMENT

Students can make an appointment to see their academic advisor by logging in to TUPortal, going to “Student Tools” and finding the appointment scheduler in “Appointment System.” Once in, students can search for appointments available by their preferred day and time. They can also let their advisor know a bit more about what they want to talk about. Appointments are available year round.

PREPARE FOR YOUR ADVISING APPOINTMENT

  • Know your TUID (91xxxxxxx)
  • Review your DARS report prior to attending your appointment
  • Write down and bring a list of all of the topics you wish to discuss or questions you have for your academic advisor
  • If you wish to discuss semester course planning, review your curriculum on the Temple Bulletin, and the course offerings for the upcoming semester.
  • Review any holds on your account and clear up those that you can prior to your advising appointment.
  • If asking questions about a letter or email that you received from anyone at the university, bring a copy of it with you for the advisor to review.
