Financial Obligations

Students who do not satisfy institutional charges will be subject to being placed on "hold" (ie. withholding academic transcripts, other records, being unable to register for the subsequent semester or suspended.) It is the policy of this institution to withhold academic transcripts for students who have been reported to the institution as being in default on a student loan.

Discharge of a Prior Loan Due to Total and Permanent Disability

A borrower who has received a discharge of a prior loan due to conditional or final determination that the borrower is totally and permanently disabled must do all of the following to be eligible to receive a new Direct Loan or PLUS loan at Temple College:

  • Obtain a physician’s statement certifying that the borrower may now engage in “substantial gainful activity.” For these purposes, “substantial gainful activity” is defined as the ability to work and earn money.
  • Sign a statement acknowledging that any new loan the borrower receives may not be discharged due to the same or any disability existing at the time the new loan is made, unless the disabling condition substantially deteriorates to the extent that the definition of total and permanent disability is met.
  • Sign a statement acknowledging that collection activity will resume on any loans in a conditional discharge period.
Equal Educational Opportunity

It is the policy of Temple College to ensure equal opportunity in all its educational and financial aid programs without regard to gender, disability, race, color, age, religion, national origin or veteran status. The college reserves the right to make changes without notice as required by college or legislative action.
