The Bursar's Office issues balance due notifications by e-mail to students and their Authorized Payers when there is a balance due on the student account. The e-mail notifications are sent from email@example.com to a student’s official Temple University e-mail account and the e-mail account of the Authorized Payer in TUpay (Temple University’s online student account and payment system).
TUpay is Temple University’s official online student account and payment system. Students can access their student account, view their current balance, create authorized payers and can make online payments through TUpay.

Students can access TUpay through TUportal.
