Temple forms must soon accommodate use of new TUid

Temple will soon replace the Social Security number with the new TUid as the means of identification for students, faculty and staff. This change will affect the way offices communicate and will require modifications to departmental, preprinted and Web-based forms.

Departments will have to change their developed forms by Sept. 30 to conform to the University’s Social Security Number Usage Policy and Procedures. The University’s Forms Team will send updates on how to obtain replacement forms as they become available. In the meantime, departments should review their forms and identify those that need to be modified.

The policies are available online at:

In addition, if you currently use the Temple “T” and/or the words Temple University on forms, you should contact publications (204-1367) to obtain an electronic file with the new Temple University signature that is being introduced this spring.

Hannigan selected in MLS draft

Senior goalkeeper Patrick Hannigan recently became the first Temple soccer player to be selected in the Major League Soccer draft. He was selected by the MetroStars with the sixth pick of the third round of the league’s supplemental draft on Feb. 4. He was the only player taken in the draft from a Philadelphia Soccer Seven school and one of two players from an Atlantic 10 program.

Hannigan, who also earned Academic All-Atlantic 10 Conference status in 2003, also was a two-time all-region selection. The Philadelphia native (Frankford High School) helped the Owls post consecutive 10-win seasons.
