Before registering or looking up classes for the first time each semester, students must accept the Financial Responsibility Agreement (FRA). Temple does not cancel registration for non-payment. Students that are not planning to attend must drop their registration by the end of the drop-add period. If registration is not dropped, students remain financially responsible for tuition and fee charges.
Bill notifications are sent to the student’s official Temple e-mail account. Bill notifications are also e-mailed to parents or others if the student designates them as an Authorized Payer. Bills are available online in TUpay. Paper bills are NOT mailed. First fall/spring bill, 50% is due.
Students are not billed until they are registered. Depending on the registration date, up to 3 bills could be issued for the Fall and Spring semesters. Newly registered students are billed for the first time on the Monday following their initial registration. Schedule: Fall – first bill issued July payment due August Spring – first bill issued in Dec, due in Jan Summer One – bill issued in April, due in May Summer Two – bill issued in May/June, due in June
