Tuition & Financial Aid

Investing in your education will pay dividends. Estimated costs for tuition (including required fees and suggested education-related expenses you may incur while attending our program) are available through The HUB, Carnegie Mellon’s Student Enrollment Services Office

Financial Aid

Financial aid is available in the form of scholarships, loans and a tuition payment plan.

Qualified U.S. citizens and permanent residents may be eligible for federal Direct student loans, including Unsubsidized and Grad Plus Loans. Private (non-federal) education loans also are also available to U.S. citizens and non-U.S. citizens. Generally private education loans require non-U.S citizens to have a U.S. cosigner for the loan; however, there are loan options available to qualified non-U.S. citizens without a cosigner. You can find private loan options by searching FASTChoice, a free loan comparison service.

All Carnegie Mellon students are eligible for a tuition payment plan, which allows monthly payments with no accrued interest charge. Students pay an enrollment fee for participation in the plan. For additional questions about loan options and the tuition-payment plan, visit Carnegie Mellon’s Student Financial Aid Website

Financial aid for MSCF students is administered by The HUB.  Detailed information on the graduate student financial aid process can be found on The HUB's website. If you have specific financial aid questions, please contact the Tepper School's HUB Liaison.
