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
