We regret that aid is limited and we are therefore typically not able to cover program fees in full. Families are expected to contribute to the cost of a student’s program. Financial aid cannot be used with any other offers, discounts, or promotions, and can only be used toward program fees. 

We encourage you to apply early! Aid is limited and may run out before May 20, 2022. No requests for aid will be considered after May 20, 2022.



  • Applications for financial aid are due no later than May 20, 2022.
  • Deposits on program fees are due by June 3, 2022.
  • Program fees are due in full no later than 7 days prior to the first day of the program. Failure to pay in full will result in being dropped from the program.


The Office of Summer and Pre-College Programs encourages any families who are unable to afford the full program fee to apply for aid. Selected recipients will have an expressed desire to learn, be in good academic standing, and be ready and excited for Temple’s pre-college experience.
