Cost of Attendance
While applying for our programs, we encourage you to consider other important factors, including financial aid, housing and insurance.
Tuition & Funding
As self-funded master's programs, all enrolled students or their employers are responsible for paying full tuition and expenses.
For tuition costs for each program, please visit our degree pages:
We encourage prospective students to independently seek outside scholarships and grants, including through the following resources here at Carnegie Mellon University:
- The Student Financial Service's page on the Graduate Financial Aid Process
- The Office of Graduate Education's page on Financial Assistance
- The College of Engineering's section on Financial Support, which includes details on how to find external funding
- The Fellowships and Scholarships Office's page for International & Non-citizen Student Resources, for funding opportunities both at CMU and by other organizations
Please note that CMU does not offer teaching or research assistantships for master's programs.
Limited campus housing is available to graduate students at the Pittsburgh campus only. Email Housing Services at firstname.lastname@example.org to inquire about availability.
Learn about what it's like to live in Pittsburgh on the university's website.
As a full-time student, you are required to prove adequate health insurance. Insurance plans must be employer or government-sponsored group programs and meet certain minimum standards for coverage. Visit CMU's Student Health Service website for more on health care and medical insurance for graduate students and their families.
