Get Started

You need to complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) to be considered for federal and institutional aid. This is the only action required to apply for most financial aid at Temple University. There are some scholarships and state grants that require separate applications. Visit the Financial Aid Types section of the Student Financial Services website for more information. We encourage all students to apply for financial aid.
