Commit to finishing your degree in four years.

Staying on track to graduate on time provides students and parents with a clear opportunity for budget planning during the college years. UNM will pay the tuition costs of the final semester for new incoming first-time freshmen who graduate in eight regular semesters. It is one more reason for you to aim to achieve graduation in four years, and it’s one more way UNM is committed to helping you succeed.

Benefits of Finishing in Four Years

  • Maximize the value of your degree by starting work sooner
  • Begin your career or graduate/professional program earlier
  • Graduate with less or no debt by substantially reducing the cost of your degree
