SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) – The Santa Fe University of Art and Design is allowing graduates of the local community college to enroll with a tuition discount.
The Santa Fe New Mexican reports that Santa Fe Community College grads can register at the university this fall and pay just above $10,000 annually.
That is a 66 percent drop for higher-tuition programs and 45 percent less for the school’s lower-tuition programs.
The rate applies to the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Fine Arts programs.
University president Larry Hinz says the collaboration will help put the community college students who want to get an arts degree stay on an affordable path without having to move out of Santa Fe.
