Academic Advising


Tyler School of Art and Architecture students have access to academic advising as well as a variety of academic resources, both within Tyler and across Temple—a large, public research university—to help them reach their goals.

Tyler Academic Advising
Tyler's Academic Advising team offers every Tyler student one-on-one, personal and academic guidance, beginning at orientation, right through graduation. Same-day walk-in appointments are available or you can schedule a meeting easily using their online system.

Stay on track to graduation
Through Temple’s Fly in 4 program, Tyler undergraduates are given a map to complete their requirements and earn their degree in four years—a key factor in reducing student debt. Students and their advisors use DARS (the Degree Audit Reporting System) to stay on track.
