Undergraduates at Carnegie Mellon University will see tuition increase on average by 2.9 percent for the 2014-15 academic year, officials announced today.

Total attendance costs, including tuition, room and board, will range from $61,186 to $60,266, depending on year of study.

Under Carnegie Mellon’s tiered price system, undergraduate tuition will be $48,030 for incoming students and those who entered in fall 2013, the university announced in a campus email.

It will be $47,560 for those who entered in fall 2012 and $47,110 for students who arrived in fall 2010 or 2011. Graduate tuition is set by individual programs and colleges.

“While this relatively modest increase is consistent with our goal of containing costs and managing our resources appropriately, we appreciate that any tuition or fee increase adds to the financial burden on our students and their families,” Michael Murphy, vice president for campus affairs, told students and employees in his email message.

He said the university will continue to invest in financial aid.

Carnegie Mellon also announced that room and board rates are now in place for the upcoming school year. They include $7,280 for standard double room and $5,120 for a standard first-year meal plan.

The tuition, room and board collectively represent a 3 percent increase in attendance costs for incoming students, officials said.

Total attendance cost will be $61,186 for first-year students; $61,186 for those who entered in 2013; $60,716 for who entered in 2012 and $60,266 for those who entered in 2010 or 2011.
