Students are encouraged to pay the total account balance by the bill due date. In doing so, students avoid any payment plan fees and late payment fees. However, if you are un-able to do so, Temple University offers two payment plans to help students and their families.
Please note that payment plans are offered for the fall and spring semesters only. Payment plans are not offered in the summer semesters. For summer bills, students are required to pay the total amount due by the due date indicated on the bill.
For the first bill of the fall and spring semester, students will be billed with a minimum amount due that represents 50% of current term charges less any anticipated financial aid plus any prior term balances. While the total amount due is the recommended payment, students are required to pay the minimum amount due to remain in good financial standing with the University.
Students who elect this payment option and do not pay the total account balance will be automatically enrolled in the University’s Deferred Payment Plan. Students will be assessed a $25 non-refundable deferred payment plan fee if the total account balance is not paid by the due date.
For the second bill of the fall and spring semester, students will be billed for the remaining account balance. Students who do not pay the total account balance in full by the due date are indicating that they wish to remain in the University’s Deferred Payment plan and will be assessed an additional $25 non-refundable deferred payment plan fee.
TIPP is an interest-free pre-payment plan administered on behalf of the University by Higher Education Services, Inc. (HES). The plan allows Temple students to make up to ten regularly scheduled monthly payments starting in May towards their future charges (five payments for fall and five payments for spring).
Students can finance all or a portion of their charges by paying a $50 application fee. Payments can be made directly to Higher Education Services, Inc. by check, pre-authorized debit, or credit card. Credit card payments are subject to a convenience fee of 3.5%.
