PHILADELPHIA - Temple University announced plans to freeze tuition rates for undergraduates and graduates for the upcoming 2020-2021 academic year which will start in the fall.
If approved, the freeze will be in place for both in and out-of-state residents who will be attending the university in August.
“With the economy in its current state, we could not in good conscience propose an increase in Temple’s tuition," Temple University President Richard M. Englert, said in a statement." Students have had to face many challenges in recent months. A tuition increase should not be one of them.”
The plans will still need the approval of Temple’s Board of Trustees before it will become official.
Their next meeting will be on Tuesday, May 12th.
