NMSU to offer discounted tuition for Mexican students

New Mexico State University NMSU

LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) – Mexican students will now be able to attend New Mexico State University at a discounted rate.

The NMSU Board of Regents passed a resolution that allows students from Mexico to pay a lower tuition rate than out-of-state students.

Las Cruces is near the border with Mexico and already attracts many students from the country. The university is also recruiting students from the northern Mexican states of Chihuahua and Sonora.

The tuition rate for qualifying Mexican students will be about half than the one for out-of-state students at about $4,600 a semester for full-time students.

The new rate takes effect in the fall.
