Please read on to view our policies regarding billing, payment, registration, deposits, and more.

Registration and Payment

The first step to attend a pre-college program is to apply to Temple Summer Academy or Temple Summer Scholars, or fill out the enrollment form for Temple Pre-college Workshops. These steps are completed online. For other programs, please see the program-specific page for registration and payment information.

We accept Visa, MasterCard, American Express, and Discover. To pay by check, please contact us at 215-204-2712 or precollege@temple.edu. Please note that we are unable to accept cash. If you have been invoiced for a program and need to pay your balance, please view the instructions for how to do so online.

Course and Workshop Cancelation

The Office of Summer and Pre-college Programs reserves the right to cancel a workshop or course due to low enrollment. Students will be given the option of enrolling in an alternate choice or receiving a full refund. We would like to stress that it is very helpful to the process if you enroll early! Please allow 14 days if paying by credit card.

Refund Policy

Your deposit to any pre-college program is non-refundable. If you need to withdraw from your program, you must provide written notice to our office by emailing precollege@temple.edu.

If your withdrawal notice is sent more than 14 days before your program's start date, you will be issued a full refund, less your deposit.

If your withdrawal notice is sent less 14 days and 1 day before your program's start date, you will be issued a 50% refund, less your deposit.

No refunds will be issued for withdrawal requests received with less than one day prior to the student's scheduled program start date.

Final course selections will be confirmed as early as possible, but no later than 7 days prior to the start of the program. If your first choice courses or workshops do not run due to low enrollment, we will issue a full refund or we will gladly place the student in another course of their choice.

Payment Plans

You must hold your space in your program with a deposit ($100 for Pre-college Workshops, $200 for Temple Summer Academy, or $300 for Temple Summer Scholars), but you can pay the remaining balance in any installments that work for you and your family. All program fees must be paid in full 7 days prior to the start of the program.
