New Mexico Colleges that are Hardest to Get Into

Colleges with the Lowest Acceptance Rate in New Mexico for 2020

These are the most selective colleges in New Mexico. We've ranked the schools which reject over fifty percent of applicants. Leading the list is New Mexico Institute of Mining and Technology which sent acceptance letters to only 23% of the 1,740 students who applied and rejected 77%. Interestingly, not all schools on our "most selective" lists are overly academically challenging. Schools with less rigorous standardized test and high school GPA requirements may receive a large numbers of qualified applicants and the school does not have space to admit them all.
