New Mexico State University continues to be recognized as a leading school for Hispanic students, as well as for those students looking for an affordable, high-quality online education.
Affordable Colleges Online has ranked NMSU eighth on its list of Most Affordable Online College Degree Programs. Rankings were based on information from the Integrated Post-Secondary Education Data System, the National Center for Education statistics, Payscale.com’s 2013 College Earnings Report and the Carnegie Foundation.
“Today’s mobile economy demands the widespread availability of online education, and many colleges are meeting that demand head-on,” said Dan Schuessler, founder of Affordable Colleges Online. “We’ve sifted through the most complete and comprehensive data sources to find the colleges and universities offering low-cost, high quality distance learning options.”
The College Database ranked NMSU 21st in its 33 Most Popular U.S. Colleges for Hispanic Students list.
“When pursuing a college degree, it’s important for students to find a school that fits their academic, professional and campus wants and needs,” said Matt Davis, managing director, communication and partnerships for the College Database. “Therefore, it’s equally important to recognize colleges and universities with programs and atmospheres that truly make a difference.”
