Financial Aid in TUportal
Federal regulations require that a student’s total annual student financial aid, including loans and work-study, not exceed a student’s annual cost of attendance. For most students, financial aid only meets part of their financial need. Completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the first step in determining the types of aid for which you are eligible.
Your financial aid eligibility depends on your FAFSA determined expected family contribution (EFC), your year in school, your dependency status, your residency, your enrollment status (full-time assumed), and the direct costs associated with your chosen school/college and housing selection. There are differential tuition charges among Temple’s schools/colleges, therefore it is very important to utilize the university’s tuition calculator resource as a way to estimate the current or upcoming year’s total bill.
Our Handbook for Incoming Students and Families also reviews the information you need to know to prepare for an upcoming academic year.
Temple University is committed to using the Principles & Standards of the College Cost Transparency Initiative in its student financial aid offer.
