Before starting our discussion about the registration process, I would like to mention the difference between credit and non-credit courses in passing.
Credit courses are specifically geared to students who are interested in earning college credits towards a degree or certificate. These courses are a full session-long (usually 16 weeks for fall or spring and 8 weeks in summer), offering in-depth and intensive instruction in a subject area. If taking a credit course, you will receive a letter grade (A, B, C, D or F) at the end of the semester.
Offered as seminars and workshops, non-credit courses are short-term classes offered through the continuing education department. These courses are intended for those who want to expand knowledge, learn a new skill, update existing skills or develop personal interests. However, no academic credits or CEUs (Continuing Education Units) are awarded.
You know both of these courses can be offered at a college or university. So, among the nation’s largest providers of professional education, Temple University of course offers online non-credit courses in addition to online degree programs.
Currently, these online non-credit courses are available in a wide range of subject areas in Temple University. Some of these subject areas include:
• Arts, Literature and Language
• Certificate Financial Planning
• Food & Entertainment
• Interior Design
• Physical Therapy
Check the list of non-credit credit courses they currently offer and select one you are interested in.
How to Register for an online non-credit course at Temple University
Having chosen the course you want to enroll in? Now, it’s time to register for the course. Actually, it’s easy and convenient to register for an online non-credit course at Temple University. Just enroll in online. Here is a step-by-step guide.
1. Add to Enrollment Card
As I mentioned before, you can look up the course you want to enroll in at the above page. In fact, in addition to the course listing, you can also find a link called “Enrollment Card” on that page. Just click the link to start the registration process.
2. Log on
One point I would like to say is that you must have an account with Temple University to enroll in its non-credit courses online. If you don’t have an account with them, you can create an account after entering the “Enrollment Card” page. Be aware that you need to provide the following information when setting up a new account.
• Password (your password can be up to 10 characters)
• First name, last name
• Address Line 1
• City, state, zip code
• Day phone
• Evening phone
• Email address
Be noted that the email address you supplied cannot be assigned to another user in the online registration system. If the email address is assigned to another user, you will be informed and given the opportunity to enter a new email address.
If you are a returning student or have used the online system before, just log on with your email address and password. If you have any questions in this process, please call Temple University at 267-468-8500.
3. Select Course Fees and Make Payment
After logging on, you will be required to select the course fee options (such as registration fee and add optional fees).
If you are enrolled in other courses, click the “Enrollment Card” link and repeat steps 1 and 3. Once you have added all the courses you are interested in to your Enrollment Card, click the “Finish Registration” button to perform the next step.
Note: For some courses, additional registration information may be required. If the courses you are registered for involve extra registration information, you will be taken to the “Supplemental Data” page to enter the information.
4. Make Payments
Once you finish selecting the course fee options, click the “Submit” (payment) button. Then, you will be taken to the TUPay payment site. Enter the required payment information. If payment information is valid, you will be able to print a receipt. But, what if your payment is not valid? No need to worry – you will have the opportunity to re-enter payment information.
For online registrations, the methods of payment that are accepted online include Visa, MasterCard, Discover and e-checks.
5. Registration Confirmed
After getting registered, you will receive an e-mail confirmation within 48 hours. The confirmation will state that your registration and payment information has been confirmed and you are fully registered for the course.
Note: Payment in full must accompany registration. I am sorry to tell you that cash is not accepted. In addition, Temple University accepts any registration up to the starting date of each class or until the enrollment limit has been reached.
