1 Welcome to the Undergraduate Online Orientation for Continuing Studies
2 What is Continuing Studies? The Office of Continuing Studies (CS) is nondegree granting. CS is a student status NOT a type of course. Our students take the same courses as students who are in degree programs. You can still earn college credit but you are not admitted to the University. Students who are nondegree have not been admitted into a Temple degree program, therefore they cannot earn a degree at Temple. In order to earn a degree at Temple you must apply and be admitted to the University. You can use Continuing Studies to help build an academic record if you plan to apply to Temple.
3 Who are CS Students? We serve a wide variety of students, many backgrounds and education levels: Students interested in applying to Temple undergraduate or graduate programs Professionals updating their knowledge and skills People taking courses for personal enrichment Students visiting from other colleges High school students taking college courses
4 CS Student Policies CS undergraduate students can take up to 11 credits per semester (8 per summer session), CS students cannot take a full time course load. CS undergraduate students are limited to 30 credits total as a nonmatriculated student. CS undergraduate students cannot register online. You must provide copies of ALL previous college transcripts. If you ve never taken a college course before you must provide documentation of your HS Diploma or GED. You must have at least a 2.0 cumulative GPA for all previous college course work. You cannot have previously been denied admission to Temple.
5 Applying for a Degree Program As mentioned previously, CS students are non-degree. If you would like to be in a degree program you must apply to Temple University through the Office of Admissions. Please contact a CS advisor for counseling if you are deciding between applying to Temple or take classes through CS first.
