Tuition paid by incoming students at Carnegie Mellon University will rise by 4 percent for the 2013-2014 academic year, while returning students will see those rates rise by 3 percent, the university said Wednesday.
Once housing, board and other charges are factored in, the total cost to attend will increase by 3.24 percent for returning students and 4.02 percent for incoming students.
The new rates mean tuition will be $46,670 for incoming students; $46,220 for those who entered in 2012; $45,780 for students who entered in 2011 and $45,330 for students who entered Carnegie Mellon in 2010 or 2009.
Costs for housing will rise by $260 to $7,070, and board will increase by $180 to $4,920. The school said student fees include $120 for Port Authority Transit, $370 for technology, $242 for student activities and $10 for media.
Carnegie Mellon said it provides financial aid to 57 percent of its students.
