At CMU every effort is made to make your education here financially possible.

To study at CMU for a year, a full-time (24 credit hours/8 courses) undergraduate Canadian student living in the dorm and using the full meal plan can expect to pay about $13,000 for the two semesters of studies at CMU. (Prices are in Canadian dollars.) 

An international student (including U.S.) taking full-time (24 credit hours) courses, living in dormitory, using the full meal plan, and paying for required health insurance fees, can expect to pay about $17,000 (Canadian dollars).

International tuition payments should be made to CMU using Flywire. You can click the button below to begin the process:


The outline below gives a general idea of the breakdown in costs for one year, as a full-time (24 credit hours) Canadian student. International fees and graduate fees differ only in tuition cost.

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 currently $81.65 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.
