New Mexico Reciprocity

CSU-Pueblo is happy to offer a limited number of qualifying students from New Mexico a reduced tuition rate equal to in-state tuition. Additional information about this program may be found in the CSU-Pueblo Policy Library

Minimum eligibility: To receive the reciprocal rate, a student must be admitted to CSU-Pueblo as either:

  1. a degree-seeking freshman in either Spring, Summer, or Fall semester, with a cumulative high school GPA of 3.0 or higher, who completed all 4 years of high school from a New Mexico high school, and is a permanent resident of New Mexico OR
  2. a transfer or readmit degree-seeking student in either Spring, Summer, or Fall semester, with a cumulative college GPA of 2.75 or higher, having not previously earned any baccalaureate degree(s), and is a permanent resident of New Mexico.

Eligibility will be determined using the documents and information provided during the admissions process. CSU-Pueblo must meet the definition of the “Closest College Concept” in order to admit students under this policy. The “Closest College Concept” is defined as a post-secondary education institution that is located the shortest distance by passable road from the student’s place of residence and that offers the program desired by the student.

The special rate will only be granted for completion of a student’s first baccalaureate degree. Students must enroll full-time (minimum of 12 credit hours) in order to receive the rate. The award is renewable as long as the student meets the renewal requirements.

If you meet the minimum requirements and are interested in receiving this rate, please contact Daniella Trujillo, Admissions Counselor for New Mexico students:
