Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

I can absolutely say that I got what I paid for. I cannot say enough positive things about this school. I am happy I made the choice to attend school here.
Cynthia from Pena Blanca, NM
CNM is an awesome starting point if you are looking for a college that is affordable and a place where instructors are willing to go the extra mile to help students achieve academically and they work with the student to accommodate their personal life also.
Janice from Albuquerque, NM
Awsome education and experience for the buck!! You couldn't get any better.
Amanda from Edgewood, NM
Very cheap.
Mario from Albuquerque, NM
Most teachers are very good, although some have checked out a bit. But the cost is so low that even a bad class isn't a total waste.
Virginia from Albuquerque, NM
Well worth the money!
Miranda from Albuquerque, NM
Tuition is extremely cheap comparitively to the amount of knowledge you get every semester. Cheap education, proven by Central New Mexico, is not always an indicator of quality of education.
Daniel from Albuquerque, NM
I would say that success is achieved in college through the students' motivation and hard work through studies and self-discipline. You are basically deciding on your own to get an education. I know it is a great start for a great career and I say that it is an investment for life.
