The only way Temple University's board could have delivered any better news to students about their 2012-13 tuition is if it announced the rate getting reduced.
Instead, students will have to settle for tuition remaining at the 2011-12 rate.
That means the base undergraduate in-state students will remain at $13,006 a year.
“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,” said board Chairman Patrick O’Connor.
