New Student Registration and Orientation Programs are designed to provide you with information on essential student services, academic advisement and registration for classes, all of which will facilitate a smooth transition to NMSU. At the end of your New Student Registration you will have your class schedule, NMSU ID, new friends and a solid framework for success!

It is MANDATORY for all first time NMSU undergraduate students to attend a New Student Registration and Orientation program. We have scheduled a variety of one-day and two-day programs for your convenience. Dates for all programs are listed below.

On-campus housing is available for new students in Garcia Hall at a cost of $15 per night, per student for all two-day NSR programs. The cost includes the room charge and breakfast. We hope you take advantage of the opportunity to experience what life on campus is all about!
