Financial Aid Offer

What is the financial aid offer?

The financial aid offer is not a bill, but it contains important information for financing your education. You must file a FAFSA to receive a financial aid offer.

The financial aid offer is a summary of your financial aid and overall estimated costs for attending Temple University. It provides a breakdown of the gift aid and other aid you are eligible to receive. The offer also contains your estimated cost of attendance, which provides an estimate of your education-related expenses (tuition, fees, housing, books, etc.).


Accessing Your Financial Aid Offer

Your financial aid offer will be available in TUportal within the Costs & Aid tab under the SFS channel. You will be notified via email once the offer is made available. Look out for invites to SFS webinars to help you understand the financial aid offer as well as to get to know Temple's policies.

The Office of Student Financial Services can help answer any questions you have about the financial aid process. Make an appointment or send us an to contact us!
