The free and easy way to apply for financial aid

General Information

New Mexico Tech makes every effort to make our undergraduate education affordable for everyone: new students, returning students, and transfer students. Assistance comes in the form of institutional scholarships, financial aid, and student employment.

  1. Institutional scholarships are based solely on your grades (high school GPA, standardized test scores, and college grades if you are a transfer student). You do not need to demonstrate financial need for an institutional scholarship—only your own academic merit.
  2. In addition to scholarships, we offer financial aid, which includes
  • Federal grants (e.g., Pell Grant, SEOG Grant)
  • Federal loans (e.g., Perkins Loan, Stafford Loan, PLUS Loan)
  • Federal work-study
  • New Mexico grants (State Student Incentive Grant, College Affordability Grant)
  • New Mexico Scholars Program (based on academic merit and financial need)
  • New Mexico work-study

To receive Financial Aid (loans, grants, work-study, etc.) in addition to a scholarship, fill out the FAFSA. New Mexico Tech's Title IV code for federal financial aid applications is 002654.
