Tuition and Fees
How much does it cost to study at CMU for a year? A full-time Canadian student living in the dorm and using the full meal plan can expect to pay about $13,000 (approx.) for two semesters of studies at CMU. (All prices in Canadian dollars.)
An international student (including U.S.) taking full-time courses, living in dorm and using the full meal plan can expect to pay about $18,000. (All prices in Canadian dollars.)
The outline below gives a general idea of the breakdown in costs for one year, as a full time (30 credit hours) Canadian student. International fees only differ in tuition cost and health insurance, which are noted. This calculation does not include Applied Music course costs. This outline is based on 2011-12 fees.
How much your education at CMU will cost depends on your own specific situation. The variables include:
Course load: The number of classes and type of classes can alter the costs of tuition, books and supplies.
Living arrangements: The cost of Residence or of rent, groceries and monthly bills must be factored in. (The cost of renting apartments can be shared with roommates.)
Accommodations: CMU has various accommodation options for you, ranging from double and single occupancy dorms to apartments. Click here for a listing of all housing prices on page 2. Click here for more information about the advantages of living on campus at CMU.
Transportation: Chances are you're going to leave campus for events and concerts. Set money aside for getting around Winnipeg and traveling home. (e.g. an unlimited bus pass is $60.10 per month for Post-Secondary Students.)
Books: The cost of books will vary depending on whether you buy new or used books.
Entertainment: Money may be tight, but you'll want to allow yourself some funds to see the latest movie, go for coffee with friends, go to the symphony, see a play, watch a hockey, baseball or football game, or eat at a restaurant.
