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.

Temple Easy Payment Plan (TEPP)

If you are unable to pay the full amount owed before the semester starts, you will automatically be enrolled in TEPP. Payment of 25% of the total amount due will be required plus a $11 installment fee. The balance must be paid in up to three more monthly installments, each accompanied by a $11 installment fee.
