HU regents hike tuition

If you’re planning to enroll at New Mexico Highlands University as a new freshman in the fall, the university has a deal for you.

Regents on Friday voted unanimously to offer members of the incoming freshman class an incentive to earn their undergraduate degree in four years. Students who do that will received a $1,000 bonus check from the university after graduating.

The university’s new board of regents also signaled that the days of double-digit tuition increases at Highlands may be over.
