TUid

Temple’s TUid –For your security!
Temple University does not use social security numbers as the primary means of identification within the University.  Instead, when you register for a class at Temple for the first time, you will be issued a TUid number to protect your personal information and identity. 

You use your TUid to register, request academic information, drop and add classes, and perform all other administrative functions within Temple. Your Social Security number will only be requested for routine administrative functions as required by law, including tax purposes and the first time a student registers at Temple.

Here are some important points about the TUid system:

Fort Washington students:
The QA/RA Office issues your TUid the first time you register for a Temple class.  You may pick up a Temple ID card with your TUid number at the Fort Washington campus (425 Building) during regular office hours (generally 8:30 to 6:00 Mondays through Thursdays and 8:30 to 4:30 on Fridays.  Call 267.468.8500 to confirm when our office is available to make Temple ID cards, particularly during summer and University “breaks” (winter and spring recess).

The Fort Washington campus does not require the use of TUid cards for entry into classes;  however, you will need a Temple ID, if you wish to use the campus library, recreational facilities, or computer labs. 

Weekend students may have their ID cards created on specific dates and hours.  Again, call 267.468.8500 to verify exact times and days.

Remote students:
Remote students do not need Temple ID cards and can obtain them only if they are willing to come to a Temple campus to have their photograph taken.  Temple ID cards are primarily used for entrance into University buildings, computer labs, libraries, parking facilities, and other University-related functions.
If you are a remote student, we will email your new TUID number.  If you are a continuing student, you must have your TUid to register. 

Please be aware of University policies regarding adding/dropping courses. Deadlines are slightly different for weeknight and weekend classes, so please read the appropriate section below.

 

On-line Course Withdrawal Form

Fax Version of Course Withdrawal Form (fax to 267.468.8565)

 

WEEKNIGHT CLASSES

You will receive a full refund for a dropped weeknight class only if you drop your QA/RA course BEFORE the third class meeting. You are responsible for submitting the official Withdrawal Form to the QA/RA Office before the class meets a third time.  If you do not officially drop the class by the third meeting, you will be required to pay tuition in full, even though you will receive a “W” (withdraw) for the course.  Please do not assume that you are dropped from a class simply by not attending.  Once you are officially registered, you remain on the class list until the QA/RA Office processes a withdrawal.  It is your responsibility to forward the Course Withdrawal Form (available above) to the QA/RA Office, not your instructor's. The date on the fax or on-line submission will serve as proof of when the form was received by the QA/RA Office. It is your proof that you dropped the course by the proper date.

Before you register for a class, please determine whether you feel you will actually be able to finish it.  In the past, some students have left positions midway through the semester and find they are no longer eligible for tuition reimbursement from their former company or no longer have access to the site to attend a class.  Temple University's withdrawal policy is still the same in these circumstances:  students are responsible for all tuition after attending the first two meetings of a weeknight class.  The University is not responsible for reimbursing tuition because a student changes companies.

 

WEEKEND CLASSES:

You will receive a full refund for a dropped weekend class only if you drop your QA/RA course by the end of the first class meeting.  You are responsible for submitting the official Course Withdrawal Form to the QA/RA Office before the class meets a second time.  If you do not officially drop the class by the second meeting, you will be required to pay tuition in full, even though you will receive a “W” (withdraw) for the course.  Please do not assume that you are dropped from a class simply by not attending.  Once you are officially registered, you remain on the class list until the QA/RA Office processes a withdrawal form.  It is your responsibility to forward the Course Withdrawal Form (available above) to the QA/RA Office, not your instructor's. The date on the fax or on-line submission will serve as proof of when the form was received by the QA/RA Office.It is your proof that you dropped the course by the proper date.

DEADLINE for COURSE REGISTRATION

You should register for QA/RA courses before the semester begins.  If you register after the first class meeting, late fees may be imposed.  Sorry, but we cannot “retroactively” register students who do not enroll by the second class meeting, nor can we delete late penalties.
