Support from Parents
Parents are an important part of the Temple family. We work to keep parents of current students connected to the university through communications and opportunities to make a difference on campus.
Make a Difference
It's a fact that Temple parents make a significant financial commitment to the university from the moment their children enroll. But in order to keep our education a good value, Temple must rely on added support from parents, alumni and friends. Tuition and state funding simply do not cover the entire cost of educating a student. Your gift to Temple will help us provide your child with:
• opportunities for scholarships and financial aid
Your support as a parent is fundamental in helping Temple fulfill its mission of providing access to excellence for your child and thousands of other students.
• gifted faculty members who offer a top-notch education
• undergraduate research and internship activities
• upgraded technology, equipment and facilities that keep your
student's skills at the top of his or her field
