Orientation & Degree Programs

All new, incoming freshmen and transfer students must complete orientation before registering for classes. Orientation will provide the tools and information to make your transition to NMSU as easy as possible. Not only will you learn more about NMSU and the resources available here, but you will also meet new friends and discover that NMSU is a supportive and caring community. For more information about the program, dates, one-day and two-day program agenda, and/or to register for an orientation, visit Aggie Welcome and Orientation.
