School Cost vs. Northern New Mexico College

Cost of a Degree

When considering ability to pay for college, the annual cost is often discussed but it's the "all in" multi-year degree cost which matters in the end. Let's take a look at what it could really cost for four years at Northern New Mexico College.

Estimated 4 Year Cost at Published Tuition

At the current published rates, an estimated total tuition, fees and living expense price for a 4 year bachelor's degree at Northern New Mexico College is $54,560 for students graduating in normal time. This methodology for estimating the 4 year cost is a straight multiple of the most recent reported annual total cost and does not factor in tuition increases during the time you're in school. It also assumes you receive no grant or scholarship aid and pay the full list price.

A potentially more accurate but less conservative estimate of a degree cost can be made by using the school's annual $5,046 in-state net price as the basis. Applying this cost over 4 would estimate the cost of a degree at $20,184**

If you end up on the "five year plan" and need an additional year to graduate, your five year cost could be as high as $68,200 or $25,230 using an average net price.
