SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Santa Fe Community College has started construction of its new higher education center, a facility being built in partnership with four other New Mexico schools.

According to the Santa Fe New Mexican, the center is expected to open in the fall of 2014, enabling students to obtain bachelor's and master's degree in Santa Fe.

Participating schools include the University of New Mexico, New Mexico Highlands University, and the Institute of American Indian Arts.

New Mexico State University will join the partnership in July. Building the facility and paying for the site will cost about $12.5 million. Funding is coming from bond money approved by voters in 2010.

The center will serve approximately 800 students. That's an increase from the nearly 500 now in a pilot project.
