Temple Board of Trustees freezes tuition for 2012-13 school year

    Citing rising student debt as important issue, Temple University’s Board of Trustees voted today to freeze base tuition and make an additional $8 million in financial aid available to students.

    “These steps help in a very real and measurable way to ensure that Temple remains a terrific value in higher education,” said Richard Englert, who will become the university’s acting president July 1.

    In- and out-of-state undergrads will avoid a tuition increase for the 2012-13 academic year, and base tuition will remain stable for many grad students. Mandatory fees will hold steady at $295 per semester.

     

    The Fall 2012 semester is expected to bring 7,000 more students to Temple, pushing the total to nearly 40,000.
