Colorado Mesa University is committed to assisting students in achieving their academic goals through merit and leadership scholarships, grants, loans and student employment.

Last year the university awarded $74 million in financial aid and scholarships to 75 percent of the student body. CMU also provides a convenient installment payment plan.

A wide variety of scholarships are offered for academic excellence and leadership achievement. Additionally, the university foundation awards more than $1,000,000 in private scholarships each year. These range from a cash stipend to full tuition and fees.
