Refund Schedule

IMPORTANT: Refunds are not processed until all your institutional charges are paid in full (including tuition, fees, and books), and you have a credit balance on your Temple College Student Account. You must check with the Cashier’s Office immediately if you owe other charges such as parking fines, library fines, University Courtyard Apartment rent, loaner computer, departmental charges, Leopard Loans or other agreements to the Temple College Foundation, etc.

Please make sure that (1) your mailing address and telephone number are up-to-date on TConnect and (2) your account information on TouchNet is accurate. Each semester, we have students who did not receive their refund in a timely manner because their information was not current. Don’t let this happen to you!!

If an application is selected for verification, Temple College will email a letter to the student requesting any required documents, including verification requirements. These must be returned before the end of the enrollment period for which financial aid is requested. If errors are detected as a result of verification, we will correct the students application electronically. The student’s award will be based on the corrected data.
