Carnegie Mellon University

Tuition & Fees

Tuition is only a portion of the cost of attendance. Cost of attendance also takes into account residency status and any fees the university may charge.

When students register for classes, they are officially enrolled at Carnegie Mellon. Enrolled students must pay for any course for which they register and any fees charged by the university. Undergraduate tuition is set by the Board of Trustees and university leadership. Graduate tuition rates are set by each college or school.
