Pennsylvania Residency Classification

Based on a student’s domicile, Temple University has two tuition schedules. One is relevant for Pennsylvania residents and the other for out-of-state residents. For tuition purposes, Pennsylvania residency is determined in accordance with the criteria outlined in the Pennsylvania Residency Guidelines. Questions about Pennsylvania residency, individual student status, change of domicile, or appeals for residency classification are answered on the website of the Office of the University Registrar.
