Welcome to the Net Price Calculator

Welcome to Temple University’s Net Price Calculator! The net price calculator helps you estimate your eligibility for financial aid and your out-of-pocket expenses. Best of all, you can find out how affordable a Temple education can be. Click here to find out more about Temple University’s vision and wide array of opportunities.

If you're not going to college in the near future, the net price calculator will still be helpful. Students and parents can use this tool to learn about college costs and receive early financial aid information. You can create "what if" scenarios based on expected family income and anticipated expenses. No matter where you are in your planning process, you’ll be able to make more informed decisions about when and how much to save for college expenses.

  • How does it work? The calculator measures the financial strength of your family and uses other facts you provide to estimate the amount of grants, scholarships and other financial aid that is likely to be available to you. Your "net price" is the difference between that amount and the cost of attendance.


    Cost of Attendance – all gift aid = your “net price”


Completing the calculator should take no more than 20 minutes of your time. You will need to answer some basic questions about your parents' financial situation, so have recent tax forms or pay stubs on hand before you begin. There are helpful hints throughout, and Temple University financial aid FAQ information is just a click away.

As you use Temple’s Net Price Calculator, please remember:

  1. The Net Price Calculator process is not an application for financial aid. Your information is never shared with Temple University.
  2. Calculations are based on the parameters for freshmen entering Temple University in fall 2017.
  3. Your net price is dependent upon the accuracy and completeness of the information you provide and is primarily intended to serve as a general guide to your estimated eligibility for financial aid at Temple.
  4. The amounts that are reflected during your use of the net price calculator are only estimates, not a final determination or actual award of financial assistance to you.
  5. Temple’s Office of Student Financial Services has the final authority for determining the family contribution and any financial aid awarded to you.
  6. To apply for financial aid, you must complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible after October 1 of the year you plan to attend college.

The only way you will know for certain what it will cost to attend Temple, what financial aid you will receive, and what net amount you will have to pay is by applying for admission, completing the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), submitting all other documents required for financial aid, and receiving official notification of your admission and the financial aid you are awarded. Thus, the estimate and all other information produced by using this calculator should not be construed as a commitment or a promise on the part of Temple University.
