Will anticipated aid impact my account balance?
Because the initial account balance for a semester is listed before financial aid for the semester is disbursed, there will be a section on TUpay for ‘Anticipated Aid.’ The Anticipated Aid section includes any financial aid funds assumed to credit to your account based on your financial aid offer. Disbursement of financial aid for the semester typically begins two business days prior to the official start date of the semester. When the financial aid is officially credited to your account, it will be removed from the Anticipated Aid section and be listed as a credit.
Some sources of aid will not appear on TUpay as anticipated aid until the funding is actually received by Temple University. This includes private scholarships or third-party billing credits. Any federal PLUS loan funding or private student loan funding will not appear as anticipated aid until the application is certified by Student Financial Services.
An authorized payer has access to the same information in TUpay as the student and receives an email notification each time a balance due email notification is sent for the student. An authorized payer can review the student account in TUpay as well as make an online payment. Being authorized as a payer is not the same thing as being FERPA waived.
