Tuition & Cost

Tuition and Expenses

Tuition and books for the students entering the program in August 2019: RMB 180,000 (estimated, subject to final approval by the Temple University Board of Trustees)

Payment of Tuition

Tuition must be made in three installments during the program. The first two installments of RMB 75,000 yuan are paid at the beginning of the Fall I and Spring terms. The third installment, the USD equivalent of 30,000 yuan, is paid at the beginning of the Philadelphia summer session.

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.

Refund Policy

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.
