Temple University Pre-Payment Payment Plans

Temple University offers an interest-free pre-payment plan administered on behalf of the University by Nelnet Campus Commerce known as TIPP.  TIPP is an annual plan that allows Temple students to make up to ten regularly scheduled monthly payments starting in May towards their future charges (five payments for fall and five payments for spring).

Students can finance all or a portion of their charges by electing the amount they wish to setup on TIPP. TIPP payments are made directly to Nelnet. The available payment methods are electronic check (ACH) or credit card and are auto debit (automatically scheduled to post on the 16th of each month).  Credit card payments are subject to a convenience fee of 2.75%.

The non-refundable payment plan fee amount for TIPP is $80 to enroll in this annual payment plan.

Before getting started you will need:

TUid number – a nine digit number beginning with “9” that is located on your Temple ID card.

Amount Due – the estimated amount that you will owe out of pocket for the academic year. Go to Temple University’s Tuition Calculator at https://bursar.temple.edu/tuition-and-fees/tuition-rates.  Answer the questions to calculate tuition, fees, room and board, then enter your financial aid and payments for the year. The difference will be your estimated balance due. Be sure to review your calculations and add 3-5% to the final number for the potential tuition increase.
