The UNM Lobo First-Year Promise: “Qualified first-time freshmen who have graduated from a New Mexico high school and have an annual family income of $50,000 or less will have tuition and fees for full-time enrollment covered for the 2021-22 academic year! The Lobo First-Year Promise is intended to reassure students and their families in New Mexico that a university education is possible. Our promise is to support first-time students’ college enrollment as we anticipate future expansion of The Opportunity Scholarship. How to Receive The Lobo First-Year Promise: A priority date of April 15th for completion of admission and financial aid applications ensures that qualified students will receive The Lobo First-Year Promise.” https://promise.unm.edu/

Families: Today we had our reopening inspection. Unfortunately, our HVAC upgrade is not complete and we are not approved to bring scholars into the building at this time. That means we cannot begin in person learning on Tuesday 4/6 as planned. For now, all classes will remain remote and we will update you as construction is completed.

ABQCA Community: The Governor announced that secondary schools are able to begin the process of returning to some in person classes. We are reviewing the requirements to have scholars back in the building but it will take time to get these in place.

We will keep you updated as that date approaches. Stay safe!
