Peace Officer Tuition Exemption

 Temple College transcribes up to 31 hours of college credit for peace officers interesting in obtaining their degree in criminal justice. Additionally, the Texas Legislature approved tuition exemption for police officers. Police officers are exempt from tuition for criminal justice classes related to their criminal justice degree. Temple College must have a letter from your Chief or Human Resources Director that indicates you are a commissioned police officer in good standing before tuition is exempt and the letter must be renewed annually. All tuition exemption is processed through the Department Chair of Criminal Justice, Dr. Lesley Keeling-Olson. You can contact her at or 254-298-8634.
