Registration Procedures for New Students

Getting Started
How do you get started in our RAQA graduate program? Just register for a course. You do not need to apply formally to a certificate program or the MS.

How many courses should you take?
Working full-time? We suggest starting with just one course. After you get used to juggling work and school, you may consider taking two courses or more per semester.

Studying full-time? If you're a full-time graduate student, you must take at least 3 courses a semester.

Forms You'll Need
Submit 1) the correct registration form AND 2) a state residency form (listed above).

Registering for an online course?
Make sure you include
1) photocopies of your undergraduate and/or graduate transcripts,
2) a signed copy of your current resume,
3) a recent photograph (digital photos are fine).

If you’re an international student registering for an online course, you must also include
Photocopies of TOEFL or IELTS scores
A photocopy of a WES report.

Email ( or fax (267.468.8565) all registration materials to the RAQA Office for processing.

Register Early
Registrations are processed on a first-come/first-served basis. Register early to save your spot in the course of your choice.

Tuition Bills Tuition & Fees
Temple uses electronic tuition bills. You will not receive a hard copy statement in the mail. Instead, you will receive a message on your TUmail account that your tuition statement is available with the due date. (If you miss the bill payment deadline, you will be charged a late fee.)

Fall tuition bills are due in early September.
Spring tuition bills are due in late January.
Summer tuition bills are due 2-3 weeks after your registration is processed in Banner.
