Temple University announced Monday plans to freeze undergraduate and graduate tuition for the 2020–2021 academic year.
The freeze—for both in-state and out-of-state students—will need the approval of the University’s Board of Trustees. The Board’s next meeting is Tuesday, May 12.
“With the economy in its current state, we could not in good conscience propose an increase in Temple’s tuition,” said President Richard M. Englert. “Students have had to face many challenges in recent months. A tuition increase should not be one of them.”
If approved by the trustees, this will be the second consecutive year with no increase in undergraduate base tuition at Temple for Pennsylvania residents.
