Eligible students may start with steps below to apply for federal student aid. Student aid eligibility will help inform state and institutional aid funding options. International Affairs can assist international students with funding resources. Temple's priority deadline for undergraduate students is Feb. 1.
Temple University’s FAFSA code is 003371.
Dependent students whose parent(s) do not have a Social Security Number (SSN) can still complete the FAFSA with parent information by:
- Entering your Parent(s) SSN as 000-00-0000 if they do not have SSN
- Providing parental tax and income information by converting parent foreign income to U.S. Dollar
If your parent does not have a Social Security Number, then they will not be able to sign the FAFSA electronically. You will have print out the signature page of the FAFSA (you can find information on how to find the signature page here), have your parent sign it with an ink pen, and then mail it to the address on the signature page. The Department of Education will process your signature page when it is received and update your FAFSA to record receipt of the signature page. This process can take several weeks, so please file early.
