Best Answer

Poe attended the University of Virginia and the US Military Academy at West Point, but he did not graduate from either institution. Poe entered the University of Virginia founded by Thomas Jefferson with less than enough money from his foster father to pay for one year, but he left the university after that first year because his foster father refused to pay his gambling debts. His foster father then refused to help Poe pay for tuition. So out of fear and necessity Poe joined the US Army under an assumed name. Later he went to West Point, but left by deliberately breaking rules and being dismissed after a court martial found him guilty.

He attended the University of Virginia, 1926

He enlisted in the US Army, 1927-29

He attended the US Military Academy at West Point, 1930-31

Poe attended the United States Military Academy at West Point, but did not graduate. He realized a career in the army was not for him, so he engineered his own court martial and dismissal from the service by deliberately disobeying regulations.

Poe used the name Edgar Allan Poe. It was not until after his problems at the University of Virginia played out, and he went to Boston the following year to join the US Army when he used the assumed name of Edgar A. Perry.
