Deposits, Payment Policies and financial aid


Upon acceptance to the Temple Rome program, a $200 non-refundable program deposit will be due within two weeks to confirm your participation. If you choose Temple-arranged housing, a $200 non-refundable housing deposit will be required by the deadline set for your semester. Both deposits will be credited to your account.. Temple University invoices students for all remaining program charges, at which point final payment must be made. Financial aid vouchers and/or award letters are the only exceptions to this policy. Students who have been awarded financial aid must present evidence of such awards according to the procedure outlined in the Financial Aid Section of our web site. More information and all payment due dates appear in the pre-departure information provided to students after acceptance.
