Graduate students can submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be reviewed for federal student aid. Scholarship funding is determined by the student's graduate program upon admission. We recommend that graduate students review their department's website for any priority filing deadlines.
Graduate students can view our Graduate fact sheet for a condensed overview of important financial aid terms, conditions, and policies.
International students can review information from Temple University's International Student and Scholar Services. International students are not eligible for federal student aid through the US Department of Education.

Transitioning from Undergraduate to Graduate Mid-Year
If you complete your undergraduate degree in Fall and begin a graduate program in Spring of the same academic year, then you must update you FAFSA at the end of the Fall semester. The FAFSA must reflect the "graduate" status for the your degree program, grade level, and dependency status for an aid offer to be issued with graduate loan funding.
Graduate Programs That Begin in Summer
If you are a new graduate student who is matriculating in Summer I or II 2024, be sure to update the 2023-2024 FAFSA after May 1 to reflect you are now a graduate student. SFS must receive a copy of the corrected FAFSA before the end of the summer session to issue an aid offer.
