Tuition Rates

The student's residency status and the number of credit hours in which the student enrolls determine the tuition a student is to pay. Auditors, those enrolling in a course for no credit, pay the same tuition as those enrolled for credit. Students are required to pay their tuition and fees at the time of registration unless they present to the cashier written verification of a financial aid award, grant, scholarship, third party authorization letter, or have made prior arrangement for a loan.

Additionally, some courses have a fee. Required fees are published each semester in the Schedule of Classes.

Financial Aid Refunds and Repayment

Because student financial aid must be used solely for educational expenses, when a student receives a cash payment of financial aid and then withdraws or ceases to carry at least one-half of a full-time course of study, some of these funds may have to be repaid. If withdrawing be sure to go through official withdrawal.

Enrollment Cancelation

The Enrollment Cancellation deadline is a date set by UNM, and prescribed by state statute, by which a student must make a financial commitment by accepting financial responsibility for current semester charges and by paying their entire prior semester balance or be dropped from their current semester courses. Students can view their Enrollment Cancellation Balance over LoboWeb, in the Registration & Records menu. Payment of this balance must be received by the Cashier Department by 5:00 PM on the stated deadline. Failure to make the required payment will result in the student being dropped from all their current semester courses.

Students utilizing VA benefits must meet the following requirements to avoid Enrollment Cancelation while payment to the institution is pending from VA:

  • Enroll in classes (including 2nd 8-week courses) prior to the Enrollment Cancelation deadline
  • Provide a VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE) along with a written request to be certified to the UNM Gallup School Certifying Official prior to the Enrollment Cancelation deadline
