AY22-23 Tuition and Fees

Dear Members of the Carnegie Mellon Community:

Each year the university critically assesses the cost of providing a world-class CMU education and sets tuition, room and board and associated fees accordingly. We recognize the financial investment students and their families make by choosing to attend CMU and are committed to delivering an exceptional educational experience while making it as affordable as possible.

For the 2022-23 academic year, the Board of Trustees approved an overall 4 percent increase to the undergraduate cost of attendance. Undergraduate tuition will be $59,864 and rates for room and board are $10,000 for a standard double room and $6,796 for a traditional first-year meal plan. Approved rates for other associated fees may be found at the Student Financial Services website. Please note that graduate tuition rates are set by individual schools and colleges at the program level.

You can find updated information about financial aid, cost of attendance, and the role of tuition in operating revenue and educational expenses in the university’s annual budget at the CMU Enrollment Bulletin website.


Jim Garrett

Provost and Chief Academic Officer
