Please note: All questions about the certification process of your G.I. Bill® benefits should be directed to the Office of the Registrar (OUR), not the Military and Veteran Services Center. Listed below under "Student Services" are the names, emails and phone numbers of Temple Certifying Officials. Please make sure when you email OurVeterans@temple.edu, regarding issues or concerns copy tuvets@temple.edu.

Attention: Admitted and continuing Temple students, please submit your VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) on the Veterans Declaration page of the TUPortal. Go to 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 Veteran Declaration page in real-time whenever your benefit status is updated. If you have further questions, please contact the university's VA Coordinator at OurVeterans@temple.edu or call 215.204.7378.
