Financial Aid for New and Transfer Students

Financial aid is one way to pay for your college education.  Awards may be in the form of grants, scholarships, and student loans.  Most students qualify for some type of aid.  If you are planning on financial aid to assist with your education expenses, be sure to file your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

You may also be eligible for the CMU Traditions Program (PDF) which covers tuition and mandatory fee by using a combination of federal, state and institutional funds for families with adjusted gross incomes of $50,000 or less and family assets up to $50,000.  

Following the Financial Aid Planning Calendar and Checklist is a great way to stay on track as you navigate the financial aid process.
