Tuition and Expenses
Tuition and books for the students entering the program in August 2014:
RMB 150,000 (estimated, subject to final approval by the Temple University Board of Trustees)
Payment of Tuition
The tuition payment may be made in two installments during the program. The first payment at the beginning of registration shall not be less than fifty percent (50%) of the total applicable tuition, and the second payment made at the beginning of the spring term. Failure to satisfy any financial obligation promptly is cause for cancellation of students’ registration, withholding of transcripts or diplomas, and denial to participate in the graduation ceremony.
Summer Session in Philadelphia
Students are responsible for all their living expenses for the summer session in Philadelphia, including transportation, room and board, university fees, and health insurance costs.
Housing in Beijing
Students must provide their own housing in China. Students may apply to stay in a Tsinghua University student dormitory at their own cost, indicating their request in their application for admission. The program cannot guarantee housing on the Tsinghua campus for any student.
A limited amount of financial aid is available to cover part of the cost of tuition. It is awarded based on academic merit and need, and will be determined at the same time decisions are made on admissions. No financial aid may be used to cover living expenses.
Tuition refunds will be provided only to those students who formally withdraw from the program. Refunds are provided on a pro rata basis for courses not attended and for which books have not already been ordered. Any such tuition refund requests must be made in writing to the program director before the start of any term.
