PORTALES, N.M. (AP) — Eastern New Mexico University says it’s lowering tuition for out-of-state students next year.
The small university said Friday that its board of regents approved the drop in cost and that it will take effect in fall 2018.
Currently, out-of-state students pay 203 percent of what in-state students do. That’ll be down to 150 percent.
The 2016-2017 tuition cost was roughly $6,000 for in-state students and a little over $15,000 for out-of-state students.
