What is the relevant terminology related to registration? 


Can I register if I have an unpaid balance or a hold?

Students are required to pay their balance in-full in order to register for future semesters.  Payments can be made in TUpay.  If you are un-able to pay in-full, please contact the Bursar Credit & Collections Department at 215-204-5549 or bursarcollections@temple.edu to discuss payment options. 

Using your TUportal login, sign into the View Holds app to view the details about any holds you may have that will prevent you from registering for courses.
