New Mexico Tech seeks to admit students who are intrigued by STEM and will thrive in a small school setting that provides an intense, focused education. Our students look forward to the challenges and opportunities presented to them alongside our faculty who share their passion for knowledge. Hands-on learners do especially well at New Mexico Tech due to the abundance of research opportunities.
All first-time scholarships require the student to be a U.S. citizen or permanent resident and be enrolled full time (12 hours or more per semester). The Copper Scholarship is a $2,000/year scholarship at New Mexico Tech. Applicants must have a high school GPA of 3.3, though ACT and SAT scores are not required. Applicants must first complete the undergraduate application for admissions. There is no official deadline, but students are recommended to apply by March 1 for best consideration.
