Unique Scholarship Allows Non-Residents to Pay In-State Tuition

Northern New Mexico College’s Board of Regents on Friday, 14 July 2017, approved the Bienvenido Non-Resident Scholarship Program, allowing recipients to pay in-state tuition.

The academically competitive scholarship aims to attract high performing students from across the country to further enrich Northern’s diverse and talented student population.

In keeping with Northern’s significant non-traditional student body, the Bienvenido Scholarship will be the only one of its kind in New Mexico that is also open to High School Equivalency/GED graduates based on their test scores.

Applicants must be non-residents in New Mexico and meet at least one of the following criteria:

- A minimum cumulative high school GPA of 3.0;
- 23 or greater on an ACT exam;
- 1070 or greater on an SAT exam;
- Have completed at least 12 higher education credit hours with a cumulative higher education GPA of 3.0 or higher.

High School Equivalency graduates with the following test scores will also qualify for the scholarship program:

- HISET: 60 (total score)
- TASC: 500 (total score)
- GED (for years 2002-2014): 600 (total score)
- PearsonVue GED (years 2014 and later): 150 (total score).

Applicants must enroll and complete a minimum of 12 credit hours per semester (fall and spring) and maintain a college cumulative GPA of 2.5, to continue to receive the scholarship.

"Our motivation in creating this scholarship is to better serve our local students in northern New Mexico,” said President Richard J. Bailey Jr.

“This scholarship will help Northern attract more students, make us more fiscally self-sufficient, and put us on a better long-term footing. With our nationally accredited quality programs, our thoughtful world-class faculty, and our remarkable affordability, Northern New Mexico College will become even more of an attractive educational destination."

Northern is the most affordable four-year college in the U.S. Southwest, with full-time resident students paying $1630.20 in tuition per semester, and full-time non-resident students paying $6056.82 per semester.

“This scholarship will give non-resident students access to our quality accredited degree programs at the most affordable rates in the region. It will also provide a rare pathway for non-traditional students to access a great and affordable education,” said Dr. Ivan Lopez, Northern’s Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs.

Northern New Mexico College is a minority-serving institution, offering bachelor's, associate, and certificate programs.

The college primarily serves rural communities within a 40-mile radius of its campus in Española, New Mexico, within one of the most underserved regions in the state.

Northern New Mexico College to hold El Rito Watershed Conference

Northern New Mexico College invites community members, conservationists and interested parties to The El Rito Watershed from the Ground Up Conference, which will be held at Northern’s El Rito campus on Friday, July 14, 9 am – 5:30 pm at Alumni Hall and the Research Building (located just behind Alumni Hall).

The conference is premised on the notion that natural communities are dependent upon their watersheds, which when carefully used and protected, can continuously sustain productive local economies with a high quality of life.

The conference will feature over 20 local authorities who will discuss various aspects of the El Rito watershed, its geology, ecozones, unique vegetation and resources.

Presentations will also discuss current conservation and development activities in the watershed area and plans for sustainable economic development in the region that utilizes the watershed’s renewable resources.

The conference hopes to inform and engage the public in these planned and ongoing activities and help identify opportunities for collaborative actions, address potential obstacles and develop a shared calendar of stakeholder action.

The conference will employ a Geographical Information System (GIS) approach to explore the characteristics of the land and chart activities in the watershed area. For example, the presentation on ecozones will display the map of where each ecozone is present within the watershed, along with the unique vegetation of that zone.

Presenters will include the US Forest Service, The Nature Conservancy, New Mexico Energy, Minerals and Natural Resources Department, Rio Arriba County, Kit Carson Electric Cooperative, New Mexico Forest Industry Association, Tewa Women United, Wildlife Defenders, Northern New Mexico College and others.

This free conference is open to all members of the public and lunch will be provided.
