Did you know?
In the State of New Mexico we have a law commonly referred to as SB 582 which has been around since 2005. This law establishes two things:
1. Universities are prohibited from discriminating against students based on their immigration status; and
2. Provides in-state tuition and state funds such as the Legislative Lottery Scholarship if you:
- Attended a year of secondary education in New Mexico and
- Graduated or obtained a GED (or equivalent) in New Mexico
