Temple’s leadership introduced the tuition freeze as a way of responding to the COVID-19 pandemic while maintaining the university’s finances. Instituting a tuition freeze allowed Temple to save students money and keep the university financially viable during the pandemic.

Information about Tuition and Fees

Estimated tuition and fees are updated annually each summer. Some or all instruction for all or part of the academic year may be delivered remotely. Tuition, the University Services Fee and certain other fees are set regardless of the method of instruction and will not be refunded in the event instruction occurs remotely for any part of the academic year and regardless of the inability to access university-maintained facilities, or any disruption to or cancellation of activities, events, services or programs during the academic year.​
