Aggie Ingeniero, April 2021




The Board of Regents approved differential tuition to be charged for engineering courses 300-level and above starting Fall 2021. In the academic year, ’21-’22, students enrolled in courses at or above 300-level will see an increase of $25 per credit hour. From the academic year ’22-’23 and forward, the tuition increase will be $39 per credit hour. The revenue from this tuition increase will support additional faculty positions in engineering programs and will help with course offering frequency, class sizes, and faculty retention. It will also help us meet accreditation expectations on student-faculty ratios. Nevertheless, our tuition rates will still remain more affordable than our regional peers (UTEP and UNM). 

NMSU Engineering takes pride in being student-centric. We remain committed to quality of instruction and to student success. In the meetings with student groups, faculty, and advisory board members during the last several months, all of our constituencies expressed support for differential tuition. I thank the Board of Regents and our administration for approving this increase.    

Lakshmi N. Reddi, Dean
