University of New Mexico proposes upping credit hour price

April 3, 2019

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — University of New Mexico officials have proposed charging $10 more per credit hour for students who have declared a major in the College of Arts and Sciences.

The Albuquerque Journal reports a subcommittee of the university board unanimously approved Tuesday a recommended budget that includes adding a differential tuition.

The change would increase students’ tuition by about $300 per year. Officials expect to generate about $1.7 million per year.

The college includes a broad field of studies, including chemistry, anthropology, English, American studies, economics and others.

Interim Provost Richard Wood says about 40% of the undergraduate student body have a major within that college.

University regents are scheduled to vote on the university’s budget next week.
