Notes ABOUT COST

 

  • Tuition rates are for 12 to 17 undergraduate credits; graduate tuition for 15 credits.
  • *Per university policy, Temple students who are considered “upper division” are charged an additional $300 tuition per semester. “Upper division” is defined as an undergraduate student with a minimum of 60 earned credits, regardless of how obtained. This policy does not affect non-Temple students.
  • **The homestay cost includes accommodations and some meals: breakfast Monday-Friday and dinner Monday-Thursday.

 

Non-Temple Student Surcharge

 

In addition to the above costs, non-Temple students are charged an additional fee to cover program costs as follows: $600, Pennsylvania residents attending Pennsylvania public universities; $800, all other non-Temple students.

 

Course-Related Fees

 

Students should also be prepared to budget for course-related excursion fees and studio fees. These fees can range from as low as $20 for a studio fee or half-day excursion to several hundred dollars or more for a three-day excursion.

 

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.
