The process was pretty simple, I just had to apply for FAFSA and fill out a CSS application. It's difficult to earn a lot of financial aid unless you really need it, though. Student invoices and account activity is available on your online account for easy viewing, but you might have to wait a few days for updates to show.

They do not give an appropriate amount of Financial aid. They continue to increase tuition costs, but do not increase financial aid. They take away what they promised for no reason. Such an expensive school needs to give more financial aid to middle class students

I received twice the aid at CMU than I did from an Ivy League school I was also considering. The people in the office are very friendly too as long as you don't yell at them - even if you're stressed to the max because it's crazy expensive... Make sure everything is in on time too!

I know that CMU values it's students and the education it provides, but I (and I'm not alone when I say this) just don't feel as though they do everything they can to make sure that students can really afford the education of their dreams. I know it's a private institution and that they need to make money, but, more often than not, it just seems like our school has so much money and yet so many students (myself included) have to struggle each semester to scrape together enough money to continue our education. Now, I got an okay amount of financial assistance from my school and took out student loans, but my mother lost her job and I'm barely making enough to cover our groceries. I've been selling a bunch of my stuff, but we still have just over $6000 that we need to pay before I can start school. I just feel like trying to get an education shouldn't be so painful.

Usually goes well just be aware of your situation because things can change quickly and you can easily get screwed.
Sorry, there are no reviews.
