You know, it may not be the safest place to settle down for 4+ years, but the costs sure aren’t rising. According to the Philadelphia Business Journal, tuition for undergraduates at Temple University next year will not be raised. In addition, the school will offer $8 million more in financial aid for students for the 2012-2013 school year.
The move goes against trends, which have public 4-year schools raising their tuition an average of 4% to 6% each year. With that plan in place, base tuition will sit at $13,006 for in-state residents, with around $300 in additional fees. Affordable? Yeah. Safe? Meh.
