The College of Education and Human Development Academic Advising unit guides students from new student orientation to degree completion.  Our purpose is to provide quality academic advising services that empower students to make informed decisions about their academic goals, along with their personal/career goals related to their chosen program (major).  Students work collaboratively with our academic advising team to develop individual plans for academic success, interpret university policy, and to stay informed of college and university resources that can support their needs and ambitions.   The Undergraduate advising team serves as a resource for students, partnering with them as they work to achieve their goals.  

Each student in the College of Education and Human Development has the flexibility to meet with any Academic Advisor, once they have matriculated into the College.  All students are encouraged to see an Academic Advisor every semester.  Advising is key in helping each student to create an individualized and accurate academic plan.  Meeting and Academic Advisor also gives each student the opportunity to ask questions, receive support, and engage in decision-making related to their goals. Academic Advisors utilize best practices to facilitate academic growth while guiding students from pre-admission to degree completion. Our Academic Advisors encourage independent thinking while providing guidance.

Who Should See An Advisor?

All College of Education and Human Development students are encouraged to see an Academic Advisor every semester. This helps the student in creating an accurate academic plan while also giving students the opportunity to ask questions about such things as certification exams, study abroad, academic opportunities, resources at Temple, and more.

Most students are able to self-register, but we recommend that students consult an Academic Advisor before doing so. Registration is completed using Self-Service Banner (SSB) which is available through TUPortal. Registration information and details are available on the Office of the University Registrar's pages. Students who MUST see an Academic Advisor before they can register:

  1. Students in their first semester at Temple University
  2. Students on Academic Warning must see an Academic Advisor before they are able to register. After an appointment with an Academic Advisor, students on Warning will be provided a PIN number allowing them to self-register.
  3. Students on Academic Probation must see an Academic Advisor to register, they cannot self-register.
  4. Students who have just re-enrolled must meet with an Academic Advisor before registering.

Current students please remember to visit TUPortal >> College of Education and Human Development tab for more information.
