New Mexico-Arizona Tuition Reciprocity Agreement

PCC and four other Arizona community colleges offer selected students who reside in New Mexico enrollment at PCC with Arizona in-state tuition rates.  We are able to do this through a reciprocity agreement with the New Mexico Higher Education Department.

The agreement limits the number of students from New Mexico that PCC can accept, and gives preference to residents of Grant, Hidalgo and Luna counties.

How to participate

Note:  To participate, you must maintain your New Mexico state residency.

  • Contact PCC Admissions at (520) 206-4640.
