If you have been accepted into New Mexico Highlands’ Summer Residence Program, we congratulate you! You are part of a select group of students whom we feel will benefit from this program to get you on the right track for starting college.
The Summer Residential Program will give you an opportunity to enhance your English or math skills, to take a required general education course, and meet other students.
The Summer Residential Program begins June 4 and ends July 30. You will live on campus during the summer session, with the university covering the room cost. You will be responsible for tuition, fees, books and purchasing a meal plan from the university cafeteria.
The 2012-2013 tuition rates have not been determined, but the 2011-2012 rates are here. Generally, tuition rates increase between 2 and 7 percent per year.
All students will be required to attend the Freshmen Form Course and choose the The Wild West or MathWorks selection.
Freshman Forum familiarizes students with the resources of the university, university policies and practices, requirements of the core curriculum, and academic majors and minors. Ph.D. faculty serve as guest speakers to inform students of their programs, research and creative work in the field, and applications to professions. Additional guest speakers may include representatives from Career Services, Academic Support, Student Support Services, and various campus tutoring centers. Upon completion of the course, students declare a major program of study and pre-register for the spring semester.
The Wild West
Join us for a trip back to the days of the Old West in Las Vegas, New Mexico. Learn about the lively adventures of the infamous and notorious characters who walked the streets of this town over a century ago Assignments in both classes, such as the personal narrative and the persuasive speech, will allow students to simultaneously practice rhetorical strategies in both writing and public speaking. Optional activities include horseback riding, and visits to the Rough Riders Museum, Wind River Ranch, and Ft. Sumner (to the gravesite of Billy the Kid).

Mathematics is not a “monster” to be feared and avoided, but is a tool routinely put to everyday use. Chemistry deals with matter and, like the other sciences, relies on applied math. From the energy required to run your body or your car (if not the world), to the medicines and measures that keep you healthy, to following a recipe for mixing cement or making cookies, math and chemistry are intimately involved. Join us to learn how to recognize and use math to your advantage in real life situations where Math Works
