  • What is intended major?

  • What is your GPA?

APPLY: Online. Make sure every senior (and junior) recieves a paper application.

  • Our application has no essay—no personal statement—no letters of recommendation. 
  • Low application fee $20.
  • Seniors apply NOW! Juniors in June at the end of their junior year! 
  • There is no application deadline.

ADMIT: Submit the application, official transcript after the end of the student’s junior year (the address is in the UNM application) and either the SAT or ACT test.

AID: Need based financial aid and merit based scholarships.
