The Board of Trustees announced today in a press release that tuition will remain at its current level for the 2012-2013 academic year. The freeze would keep tuition at $13,006 for in-state students and $22,832 for out-of-state students.

The board also announced today that they are starting a campaign to raise money through alumni and friends of the university as well as an additional $8 million in financial aid which would be made available to students.

“Rising student debt is one of the major issues facing this nation today. Temple is committed to being a national leader in the effort to offer an affordable quality education,” Patrick J. O’Connor, chairman of the Board of Trustees, said in the press release.
