ENMU Tuition Hike

Portales, NM - Tuition is going up at one area university.

Eastern New Mexico University regents voted to raise tuition at the main campus in Portales next year.

In-state undergraduate students will pay an extra $174  per semester, a nearly ten percent increase.

Tuition and fees for out-of-state undergraduates will rise nearly four percent.

The university says it needs the increases to balance its budget.
