  • Review Your Student Account

  • Complete Your Exit Interview

    Before you graduate, if you've received financial aid, you must complete your exit interview.

    It's a chance to better understand your student loans and personal finances. You can complete the interview online through TU's Financial Counselor Exit Interview.

  • Free Yearbook

    College is full of memories and firsts. What better way to cherish your time at Temple than a hard cover snapshot? Contact your adivising office for information on yearbook distribution.
