New Mexico State University again named "Best Buy"

For the third straight year, New Mexico State University has been named one of "America's 100 Best College Buys" by Institutional Research & Evaluation, Inc., an independent research and consulting organization for higher education.

The Gainesville, Ga., company gathered data on 1,391 four-year institutions before compiling its third annual report of what it describes as "colleges and universities providing the highest quality in education at the lowest cost."

The ratings are based on such factors as the cost of tuition, fees, room and board; the average ACT scores and grade point averages of entering freshmen; and opportunities for qualified students to obtain need-based, academic-based and athletic-based financial aid.
