Private Postsecondary Schools Division in New Mexico
The New Mexico Higher Education Department (Department) provides oversight of all “private postsecondary educational institutions” operating within the state of New Mexico, including academic, vocational, technical, business, professional, or other schools, colleges or universities, other organizations or persons offering courses, instruction, training or education from a physical site in New Mexico, through distance education, correspondence, or in person.
New Mexico requires out-of-state institutions to file a registration application with the Department if they pay or compensate personnel to work in New Mexico for the purpose of recruiting students to enroll in the institution’s programs in other states. Licensure is required if a physical presence is triggered with an internship or a New Mexico business address is established.
