PITTSBURGH—Carnegie Mellon University will increase undergraduate tuition by an average of 2.9 percent for the 2014-2015 academic year.
"While this relatively modest increase is consistent with our goal of containing costs and managing our resources appropriately, we appreciate that any tuition or fee increase adds to the financial burden on our students and their families," Vice President for Campus Affairs Michael Murphy said in an email to students, staff and faculty. "We will continue to invest in key priorities, including financial aid support for eligible students, and to work with you to maintain and enhance our uniquely vibrant and engaged undergraduate experience, just as you deserve."
Tuition will be $48,030 for incoming students and for those who entered in fall 2013, $47,560 for those who entered in fall 2012 and $47,110 for those who entered in fall 2010 or 2011.
Room and board have been set at $7,280 (standard double room) and $5,120 (standard first-year meal plan), respectively, resulting in a 3 percent total cost of attendance increase for incoming students. Undergraduate fees include a $120 Port Authority Transit fee, $380 technology fee, $246 activity fee and $10 media fee.
