        About Financial Aid

        Although primary responsibility for educational costs rests with the student and his or her family, CNM, the federal government and the State of New Mexico all contribute to assist students pursuing a higher education. Students applying for Financial Aid should complete a Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).
