You are about to embark on an exciting, rewarding and challenging journey that will truly transform your life.
New Mexico Highlands University is a wise choice for your college plans. Our students and alumni consistently rate Highlands University very high in terms of satisfaction. The reason? Excellent programs, small class sizes led by professors who know you by name, and the most affordable four-year tuition in the Western United States.
We are here to make your dreams happen, whether you’re a first-time freshmen, graduate student or transfer student. While we might be a small institution, we have a rich campus life that includes students from 42 states, 22 tribes, and 35 countries. Approximately 71 percent of our students are Hispanic, Native American, or African American; 40 percent are studying at the master’s degree level; and 70 percent of the degrees awarded recently have been to women. Other colleges and universities might talk about diversity. At New Mexico Highlands, it’s real.
I look forward to seeing you at our main campus or one of our centers and, on behalf of all our faculty and staff, thank you for considering Highlands University!
