Carnegie Mellon University’s undergraduate tuition rate will increase by 3 percent for the 2017-18 academic year. Graduate tuition rates are set at the program level.

“We recognize that an increase to our tuition and fees adds to the significant financial investment of our students and their families and we make every effort to keep any increase as low as we can,” said Provost Farnam Jahanian in an email to the university community.

“As part of our commitment to ensure these tuition dollars deliver the highest quality CMU experience, both in and outside the classroom, we are moving forward on plans to improve our facilities, resources and services, and invest in the people and ideas that make this university truly world-class. We also are maintaining our commitment to raising financial aid dollars, through Presidential Scholarships and Fellowships and other initiatives, that help to make a CMU education more accessible to outstanding students,” Jahanian said.

Undergraduate tuition for the 2017-18 academic year will be $52,732.

Room and board has been set at $8,060 (standard double room) and $5,724 (standard first-year meal plan).

Student fees for all Pittsburgh students include $410 for technology and $210 for transportation. Undergraduate fees include a $258 activity fee and a $10 media fee. The graduate student activity fee will be $214.
