1) Choose Temple!

To reserve your place in the fall 2020 entering class, you must submit a nonrefundable enrollment deposit of $200. If you would like to request a room in University Housing (available at Main Campus in Philadelphia), combine both deposits and submit one payment of $450 (see below for housing information). We encourage you to make your deposit by May 1, or within two weeks if you were admitted after April 15. Housing selection at Main Campus is first come, first served.

To pay your deposit, use TUpay for online credit card or bank debit transactions by logging on to TUportal and reviewing the information provided under the "Welcome" tab.

2)  Join TUportal.

If you haven't already, register on TUportal. You should have received an email invitation on how to join or you can read these instructions. You will need to join TUportal in order to pay your deposit and register for orientation. 

3) Register for our Admitted Student Reception and experience Temple Ambler.

As an admitted student, you and your family are invited to attend a special celebratory reception at Ambler Campus.

To register for the Admitted Student Reception, log in to your TUportal account and click on the "Register for Experience Temple Day" on your homepage. 

4) Get your financial aid in order.

Submit your FAFSA application by the February 1 deadline. Visit Student Financial Services for more information.

5) If needed, request a room in University Housing. Housing is only available at Main Campus in Philadelphia.

If you would like a room in University Housing at Main Campus, you must first submit the $200 tuition deposit, as well as the $250 housing deposit. You can select your own housing and meal plan via the Online Housing Selection (OHS) process, available in MyHousing via TUportal. Meal plans can also be used at Diamond General at Ambler Campus. Please note, housing selection begins in early March each year for new students. Learn more about housing and the Housing Selection Process

6) Attend New Student Orientation and register for classes.

Your New Student Orientation will assist you in your transition to Temple and get your college career off to a great start! Not only will you meet our student services staff, but you will meet other incoming students and register for classes.  Multiple dates are available. Information regarding Orientation will be sent to your Temple email account from the Office of Orientation, New Students and Family Programs once your deposits have been paid.
