CMU Enrollment Bulletin-The HUB - Carnegie Mellon University

The CMU Enrollment Bulletin showcases the latest research on financial aid, national student data, higher education hot topics and more. 

"Financial Aid Landscape"
Updated August 2016
Financing a college education takes creativity, commitment and support. This bulletin examines the financial aid landscape for undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon, including need-based financial aid, types of aid, Pell Grant dollars, average borrowing, and graduates' loan default rates. 

"Return on Investment"
Updated August 2016
Recognizing that each student and family will arrive at their own "equation" about the cost and value of a private educational experience such as the one Carnegie Mellon offers, the information in this bulletin is intended to provide context for these conversations and decisions.

"Cost of Attendance: Where the Tuition Dollars Go"
Updated August 2016
Various factors contribute to the annual determination of tuition and fees. Like many of its peers, Carnegie Mellon is an expensive institution; at the same time, we are committed to making a CMU education attainable for students from all socioeconomic backgrounds by applying over $77 million of CMU dollars (in 2014-15) for need-based financial aid. In comparison to our peers, CMU provides a better value to our students in terms of annual expenditures that support student instruction.

"Carnegie Mellon Military Veterans & ROTC Community"
Updated October 2016
Carnegie Mellon is home to over 200 students, faculty and staff identifying themselves as veterans. These members of the CMU community contribute to the vitality and hard-working spirit of the campus. This bulletin focuses on CMU's military veteran and ROTC students, and shares information about financial aid resources, campus services and career opportunities.
