Cost and Financial Aid
A CMU education is an outstanding investment in your future. Currently serving members of the military and their qualified dependents enjoy reduced tuition for many programs, and we offer special need-based awards to veterans. We’re committed to helping you access the support you've earned.
These costs do not include scholarships, loans, grants or other financial aid. Your actual cost could be lower. Costs are listed per credit hour. For a more detailed look at costs, see Undergraduate Tuition & Fees or Graduate Tuition & Fees.
