  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation.

What Students Are Saying

3.14 Average Rating
Northern New Mexico College is a great school. There is plenty of one on one time with instructors when needed, and the classes are small with very intelligent and ambitious students. For other colleges that i have gone to, I give Northern five out of five stars.
