Tuition & Fees

Tuition and Fees for 2015-16 Academic Year

When considering the cost of higher education, you’ll want to consider the overall cost of attendance, not only the cost of tuition. The cost of attendance is comprehensive and gives families a more realistic cost including tuition, fees, room and board, books and a transportation estimate. The other important factor to consider is the availability of financial aid when considering the cost of attending a particular institution.

Cost of 2015-16 Academic Year




Tuition $49,610 $49,610
Fees $1,055 $1,055
Room & Board* $12,830 $2,570
Books & Misc. $2,400 (estimate) $2,400 (estimate)

The university reserves the right to change its charges without notice.

* The cost for room and board is an estimate based on a standard double room in university housing, a dining plan contract and the residence hall activity fee. Some students may be housed in triples and quads at lower rate, without a reduction in their eligibility for financial aid.

** A travel allowance for resident students depends on the distance from the students home to Carnegie Mellon. This allowance will range from $0 to $1,500.

+ In addition, minimal health insurance coverage is required at an estimated cost of $1,043/year for all students unless a waiver is granted for students covered under their family’s health plan. Premium health insurance coverage is suggested for international students at an estimated cost of $2,544/year.
