Tuition and Financial Aid

Program Costs and Fees

Tuition is billed on a per credit hour basis. The total cost of attendance for a Specialized Masters Degree, will vary depending on the choice of program. For example, the cost of a 30-credit MS will be different from the cost of a 42-credit MS program.

Temple University is a state-related institution; therefore, has different tuition rates for Pennsylvania state residents. Students make tuition payments to Temple University at the beginning of each semester.

Each year, tuition rates for the subsequent academic year are announced by the Board of Trustees. Rate changes will be posted when official announcements are made in June.

PLEASE NOTE: All international students MUST pursue their specialized degree on a full time basis.  Full time status requires students to pursue at least 9 credits of course work per semester.
