1. Register for a special event just for admitted students.
As an admitted student, you and your family are invited to attend Experience Temple Day at Main Campus or Admitted Student Reception at the Ambler Campus. To register to these events, log in to your TUportal account and review the Next Steps channel.
2. Get your financial aid in order.
If you are a U.S. citizen, submit your FAFSA application by the February 1 priority deadline. Visit Student Financial Services for more information. If you have filed your FAFSA, your financial aid offer will be available in your TUportal account under the Cost and Aid tab.
3. Choose Temple!
To reserve your place in the fall 2020 entering class, you must submit a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $200. If you would like to request a room in University Housing, combine both deposits and submit one payment of $450 (see below for housing information). We encourage you to make your deposit by May 1, or within two weeks if you were admitted after April 15. Housing selection is first come, first served. On-campus housing is guaranteed if you submit your deposit by May 1.
To pay your deposit, log in to TUportal and review the Next Steps channel.
4. Request a room in University Housing.
If you would like a room in University Housing, you must first submit the $200 tuition deposit, as well as the $250 housing deposit. To start the housing selection process, log in to your TUportal and access the MyHousing information section under the TUapplications channel. Please note, housing selection begins in April each year for new students. Learn more about housing and the Housing Selection Process.
5. Participate in summer orientation and register for classes.
Complete the required Next Steps in your TUportal and then register for your summer orientation. Your New Student Orientation is designed to assist in your transition and get your college career off to a great start! New Student Orientation sessions are offered throughout the summer online, giving you plenty of time to plan. Parent and Family Orientation sessions happen concurrently with New Student Orientation sessions. Information regarding orientation will be sent to your Temple email account from the New Student and Family Programs office once you submit your deposit. Learn more about orientation.
