Payment Plans

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.

Deferred Payment Plan

For the fall and spring semesters, students that do not pay the full amount due on the bill will be automatically enrolled in the University’s Deferred Payment Plan. Students will be assessed a $25 non-refundable deferred payment plan fee for each bill if the full amount due is not paid by the due date.  For fall and spring, students can be charged $50 each semester in payment plan fees.  Students do not have to sign up for this payment plan.

Temple Installment Payment Plan (TIPP)

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%.
