Tuition bills are e-mailed a few weeks prior to the start of each semester and are usually due the week before classes begin. If you have applied for and been approved for any type of financial aid as of the date the bills were generated, the approved amount will be shown as a credit on your tuition bill.

Payment is accepted in person, by mail or telephone, in the following forms: cash, check, money order, credit card (MasterCard, Discover, American Express), or electronic check. The University charges a 2.75% convenience fee for tuition payments made via credit card.

Payment Plans

Temple University offers the convenience of paying your tuition bill through one of two payment plans, TIPP and TEPP. Both are interest free and are not available for summer sessions.

Temple Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)

This is a 10-month pre-payment plan designed to help students meet current and future tuition expenses. There is a $45 annual application fee and payments begin in May.

Deferred Payment Plan

For the first bill of the fall and spring semester, students will be billed with a minimum amount due that represents 50% of current term charges less any anticipated financial aid plus any prior term balances. While the total amount due is the recommended payment, students are required to pay the minimum amount due to remain in good financial standing with the University.

Students who elect this payment option and do not pay the total account balance will be automatically enrolled in the University’s Deferred Payment Plan. Students will be assessed a $25 non-refundable deferred payment plan fee if the total account balance is not paid by the due date.

For the second bill of the fall and spring semester, students will be billed for the remaining account balance. Students who do not pay the total account balance in full by the due date are indicating that they wish to remain in the University’s Deferred Payment plan and will be assessed an additional $20 non-refundable deferred payment plan fee.
