  Program Cost and Housing :


Tuition for the ACC program is $2800. Tuition does not include housing, meals, or books.

Students should anticipate spending approximately $100 for books and materials for ACC.

Applicants must enclose a non-refundable deposit of $100 payable to Carnegie Mellon University in order to reserve a space in the ACC program.

The remainder of tuition ($2700) will be due by the second week of class.


ACC students have many options for housing during the summer. The majority of students find long-term housing (for the academic year as well as the summer) before ACC begins. Other students arrange temporary housing (e.g., hotels, staying with friends) while they look for long-term housing. The links below provide useful information on these options:
