All students enrolled in a degree program at the University of the Arts plan and register for courses, view grades, and monitor progress towards degree completion online through the Self Service Student Planning tool. A complete guide to advising, registration, and degree planning is available in the University Catalogue.

Students who are not enrolled at the University may register for courses as a non-matriculated student. Non-matriculated status provides opportunity to pursue college-level instruction for those who have earned a high school diploma (or equivalent) or beyond, or for others who receive permission of a department, division, or school to enroll in a specific course. 

To enroll as a non-matriculated student:

  1. Browse available course sections
  2. Complete the Non-Matriculated Student application
  3. Submit your completed application and official transcripts to the Office of the Registrar

The University of the Arts partnerships with Peirce College and the University of the Sciences allow students to take courses at partnership institutions while paying tuition at their home institution. 

Enrollment verification provides information regarding a student's enrollment status (full time/part time), dates of attendance, degrees sought or awarded, and program of study. 

This information may be required by the student's lender, insurance carriers, sponsor, et cetera to determine eligibility for loan deferment and continuation of in-school benefits. The Office of the Registrar will verify enrollment for future terms only after the student has registered for classes and has been cleared by Student Financial Services.

Student enrollment is transmitted to the National Student Clearinghouse (NSCH) approximately 3-4 weeks before the start of a term, 3-5 days after the first day of a term, one week after the end of the drop/add period, and then once every 30 days. Schedule changes that alter a student’s enrollment status (full time/part time) will be reflected in accordance with this transmission schedule.
