Incentives for New Mexico Residents
Adams State University is recognized for offering one of Colorado’s most affordable bachelor’s degrees and we have a commitment to extending this value to New Mexico residents through a variety of initiatives.
- New Mexico residents are eligible for the New Mexico
Reciprocity Tuition Program. (Undergraduate, on-campus students only.)
This program allows New Mexico residents to pay tuition equivalent to the in-state resident rate, an annual savings of over $11,000 per year.
To qualify, students must (1) be a US citizen or permanent resident, (2) graduate from a New Mexico high school, and (3) have attended a New Mexico high school for at least three consecutive years. Reciprocity tuition is renewable for four years by maintaining Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP).
- Guaranteed Tuition applies to all New Mexico residents paying reciprocal tuition and ensures that tuition will remain the same for up to four years.
- The Grizzly Partner Scholarship is a housing
incentive for residents of the San Luis Valley and the bordering New
Mexico counties of Rio Arriba, and Taos. The incentive currently provides
$3,200 per year for a student's first two years on-campus. Students
must be admitted for the Fall semester and no separate application is
- Automatic Merit-based Scholarships.
