Veterans Programs

At Temple, we’re committed to helping veterans make a smooth transition from military to college life. It’s one of the reasons we are designated a Military Friendly School for 2012-2013 by G.I. Jobs Magazine. Military service members and veterans also enjoy the unparalleled access to excellence and opportunities for success that we offer. We invite you to learn more about Temple University and apply now.

Transfer credits for military service

Temple awards college credit for documented military experience according to the ACE (American Council on Education) guide recommendations. Examples of acceptable documentation for military experience include AARTS (Army/ACE Registry Transcript System), SMART (Sailor/Marine/ACE Registry Transcript), or Community College of the Air Force transcript. For credit to be awarded, it must be useful in a student's program of study. Learn more about transfer credits for veterans.

Applying for benefits

We offer several programs, including the Post-9/11 GI Bill and the Yellow Ribbon Program, that help give financial support to veterans and military service members. You need to apply for benefits through the Office of the University Registrar once you’re admitted to the university and again at the beginning of each semester.

Learn more about veterans’ benefits and how to apply on Temple’s Veteran Affairs website.

If you have questions, please call the Veterans Certification Officer in the Office of the University Registrar at 215.204.7378.
