Welcoming Our Neighbors From New Mexico

CSU Pueblo is happy to offer a limited number of qualifying students from our neighboring state of New Mexico a reduced tuition rate equal to Colorado in-state tuition.

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 and 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. Spots are limited and awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis.

To learn more about this program and see if you qualify, please check out the CSU Pueblo Policy Library.
