Cost of Attendance

Net Price Calculator

The US Department of Education has developed a calculator to help college students estimate the total cost of their education. This Net Price Calculator is configured especially for CNM.

Federal Methodology Budgets

The following budget is based based on calculations for several different student situations. It is general in nature.

Tuition Costs

Tuition rates are based on the student's residency status, where the student lives and how many credit hours are taken. Students eligible for New Mexico resident status qualify for in-district tuition if they live within the CNM District. Resident students living in New Mexico, but outside the CNM District, qualify for out-of-district tuition. Here's more information on residency. CNM also offers a senior citizen discount.
