Apply in October

A high-quality education should be within everyone’s reach. We’re finding ways to make college more accessible for everyone.

We’re celebrating college application month by waiving the application fee for all undergraduate applicants. Submit a completed application before October ends and your fee is on us. Don’t forget to file your FAFSA at FAFSA.gov. Mark CMU as one of your top choices using our code: 002243.


Submit your application online, choose the “Pay Later” option and we’ll take it from there.
