“Provide students with access to a high-quality education.” It’s a commitment that has stood firm at Temple University for more than 130 years and one to which we adhere today.

Ranked in the top 75 Best Value Schools among U.S. Universities by U.S. World & News Report, we offer students the best of both worlds: the cost of a public university with the advantages of a reputable world-class research institution. Through limiting tuition increases and providing aid, we do everything we can to make a Temple education financially possible—and easy to navigate.

At Temple, our goal is to make it financially possible for every qualified applicant to enroll, so we may continue to build the talented and diverse student community for which we are known.
