CMU Scholarship Policy
- Recipients of CMU merit- and talent-based scholarships of a dollar value equal to or greater than $2,500 are required to reside on campus during their freshman and sophomore years unless they qualify as commuting students or for another exception to the Campus Residency Policy.
- Students may receive two renewable merit scholarships. Students who are selected for more than two renewable scholarships may choose the awards of highest value.
- Estimated scholarships (i.e., outside agency) do not reduce the amount of tuition payable on October 1 and February 1. Students must make arrangements to pay for the total amount of tuition due to avoid a $100 late tuition fee and a $30 service charge.
