  • Must submit a formal application for new freshman admission
  • Must have graduated high school or completed a GED program
  • Must have a 2.0 or higher grade point average (GPA)
  • Submit ACT/SAT scores (Highlands' ACT code is 2640 and the SAT code is 4532)
  • Must submit official high school transcripts

Please note, if you submit an application along with official transcripts, the transcripts must be in a sealed envelope from the school records office. The Office of Admissions will not accept opened transcripts as official documents.

On all admission applications, the residency section must be complete with state of legal residency, county of legal residency and years the student has lived in New Mexico. If any part of the residency section is left blank, it will result in out-of-state tuition. The admissions office will not assume years of residency for any student. For questions about in-state and out-of-state tuition, please contact the Office of Admissions.
