The financial aid cost of attendance includes both billable charges from the university and indirect costs to assist students in planning their budget each year.
Billable charges are invoiced by Temple University, whereas indirect costs are not billed by the university.
Indirect costs are meant to provide students with an estimate of the educational expenses they might incur while attending. Please note: Housing and meals are only charged to the student account if the student elects to live on campus and/or select a meal plan.
We encourage students to utilize the university’s tuition calculator to develop their own budget. This calculator allows students to view the different tuition, housing and meal plan options. Estimated tuition and fees are updated annually each summer. Some or all instruction for all or part of the academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition, the University Services Fee and certain other fees are set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the academic year.
This is not meant to be a student’s Temple University bill. The aid offer includes the estimated cost to attend Temple University for planning purposes. For information regarding official billing notifications and the due date schedule, visit the Bursar's Office website.
Any full tuition scholarship offer amounts remain estimated until the university’s Board of Trustees meets in July to confirm the upcoming year’s tuition rates. All full-tuition scholarship amounts will be updated towards the beginning of each semester.
Undergraduate student Academic Merit Scholarship funding is restricted to tuition only.
Temple’s estimated financial aid cost of attendance is calculated based on the aid period listed on the student’s aid offer. We aim to present students with the estimated cost for the year and then consider the cost for four years.
