Senior Citizen Students

Pursue life-long learning at UNM West!

UNM West welcomes Senior Citizen students in courses with open enrollment (not at capacity) on the first day of the semester/term. As mandated by New Mexico State Statute, and prescribed by UNM Policy, 8210.2.7, a student may be eligible for a reduced rate of $5 per credit hour if ALL of the following criteria are met:

  1. Student is a New Mexico resident;
  2. Student is 65 or older as of the 21st day of the semester;
  3. Student registered on or after the first day of the semester with NO registration attempts prior to the first day (ANY registration attempt, including Wait List, will immediately null your eligibility for the reduced rate);
  4. Student is registered for six (6) hours or less.
