Affordable doesn't simply mean finding a school with a low published out of state tuition. It's important to research the typical financial aid package offered by a school, the average net price actually paid and most importantly the quality of education you receive for your tuition dollar.

Please see the CollegeCalc best value colleges in New Mexico list for a ranking which considers school quality and average net price.
