Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
As a state school Temple University has one of the lowest in-state and out of state tuitions in the country as far as I am aware of. In addition financial aid is very accommodating and helpful.
Brooke from Philadelphia, PA
You get a quality education at a more affordable price.
Kathryn from Wallingford, PA
Temple can be very expensive but it all depends on what your personal situation is. The financial aid packages are very helpful and flexible. Temple also has many on and off- campus work study jobs available for students.
Robin from Brooklyn, NY
The University is the most wired university on the east coast. There are computer labs all over campus with free access for students. And not to mention the loaner laptops just in case yours malfunctions. Honestly you don't even need to buy a personal lap top. However, if you do have one and it breaks down they have tech people there to fix it, no charge. I really feel like there are (free) resources all over campus to help me. My favorite one by far is the Math and Science Resource Center. They helped me oodles my first year and I know they'll be right there for the rest of my college career.
Corrine from Bear, DE
The tuition is not as expensive as other colleges that offer the same programs and class sizes. I already have a financial instability and suffered many hardships while deciding to attend which college. Temple offers many financial programs and aid for a student to join that he or she can't resist! Temple is very helpful with all of the scholarships and grants they offer for a prospecting student. It is like they are welcoming you with open arms no matter what ethnicity you are or how much money you have.
Gary from Philadelphia, PA
One of the most affordable tuition rates
Theeya from Philadelphia, PA
Its the least expensive out of all the schools I applied for and they give a good financial aid package if you have beter than average grades.
Nylejah from Brooklyn, NY
Though I believe that the tuition cost for out of state students is a bit high, I am very much enjoying both my education and leisure time at Temple.
Zaeiah from Newark, NJ
I will say that because I am a food connoisseur, I can really talk about bang for the buck in the context of food! The food trucks on campus are amazing! You can get chicken and rice with a soda for just $4.00 (no tax) and I guarantee that you won't be able to eat it all.
Julian from Glen Burnie, MD
It's VERY affordable for the amount of education and experience you get. For this price, it's a fantastic education, and I have known a few successful graduates come out of Temple with rewarding and enjoyable careers.
