Here is a link for scholarships. You can explore the "buttons" on the left to find a plethora of scholarship opportunities. The "external" scholarships can be used at any college (even out of state). Look at each scholarship link...if you qualify for it, apply for it...if you don't meet the qualifications, cross it off and move on. There are lots of scholarships available. It just takes time for you to go through and fill out the applications. This link provides many opportunities!

Money Mondays Virtual FAFSA WORKSHOPS

Take advantage of the Virtual FAFSA Workshops. The process is easy; Every Monday from 3-6pm students and parents can log in virtually, they are assigned to a FAFSA expert and can get help with their FAFSA or simply talk to an expert if they have questions about the FAFSA or college in general.

School Calendar Amendment

This will account for the three days canceled at the beginning of the year to be added to the end of the year.


The New Mexico Activities Association Board of Directors adopted a new sports calendar at its special meeting that will allow for schools to return to athletics and activities on February 22nd. Schools must still adhere to various requirements set forth by the Public Education Department and Governor’s Office in order to move forward with full participation in NMAA sanctioned competitions.

Access to Grades

Parents can access student grades though the Parent Vue app. Students can access grades for their UNM courses through the student section of LoboWeb.
