Veteran Education Benefits
Designated a Military Friendly School for 2016 by G.I. Jobs Magazine, Temple University provides access to excellence and opportunities for success for military service members and veterans who are admitted to, and enroll at Temple. The University is committed to assisting these students with making a smooth transition from military to college life.
Students seeking to use veteran education benefits towards their tuition and fees should begin by contacting the VA at 1-888-442-4551 or visit https://www.vets.gov/education/apply-for-education-benefits/. Students who already have their education benefit documents should upload them via the TUportal Veteran Declaration Page.
Attention: Admitted Temple students, please submit your VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) on the Veteran Declaration link in TUportal. On the Student Tools tab, select the Veterans Declaration link within the section labeled "Registration" and upload your COE. After your COE is processed, you will need to return to the Veterans Declaration page and declare for each term (including the first) that you intend to use your benefits. Failure to declare use of benefits will prevent your benefits from being applied for that term. Please visit the page regularly to view the history of benefit transactions, which is displayed at the bottom of the Veterans Declaration page in real-time whenever your benefit status is updated.
