Access to a Life-Changing CMU Education for Students from All Backgrounds

A Carnegie Mellon education is nothing short of life-changing. At a time of societal transformation brought on by advances in technology, the world needs more CMU graduates who are rigorously prepared to make contributions to their professions and their communities.

From admission to graduation, every student should feel welcome, supported and seen during their time at CMU. To enrich the abundance of experiences and diversity of our community, the university is expanding financial aid, recruiting students from all socio-economic backgrounds, and launching a comprehensive student success program that includes an enriching orientation and ongoing academic support. Our vision is to build a comprehensive program with wraparound support for each student throughout every step of the CMU Experience.
