For Spring 2014, the tuition payment from the Lottery Scholarship will not post to your account at the start of the semester, as it has in past years. After guidelines are communicated to NMSU by the New Mexico Higher Education Department, Spring 2014 Lottery Scholarships will be funded immediately. At this time, our best estimate for disbursement of the scholarship to students is mid-March to late-April. Special accommodations have been made to waive payment plan fees until disbursement date. Students affected by changes in the Lottery Scholarship will receive a letter about these changes by mid-November. For further information you may refer to our web site at http://fa.nmsu.edu/lottery.
