We’re committed to keeping a Temple education affordable for all.

At Temple, you get the reasonable costs of a public university with the advantages of a world-class research institution. Our goal is to make it financially possible for every qualified applicant to enroll, so that we may continue to build the diverse and talented student community for which we’re known. It’s why all students are automatically considered for academic scholarships during the application process.

Financial aid opportunities can help you finance your education at Temple. 

  • We award more than $100 million in scholarships each year.
  • 70% of eligible first year students receive need-based aid. 
  • In recent years, more than half of our students were offered merit-based scholarships, ranging from $1,000 to full tuition.

Tuition varies according to the school, college or program you choose, but our annual rate for in-state students begins at $17,136​. Base tuition for out-of-state students is $30,864​.
