Coronavirus Information – NMSU Now: Our dynamic pandemic action plan

Welcome New Aggies!

All new, incoming freshmen and transfer students to NMSU-Las Cruces or NMSU-Online must complete orientation before registering for classes. This includes both domestic and international students. 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.

If you were admitted to NMSU through another campus, or have a different admissions type, please check out the Other Admission Types page for more details. Please be aware that even if you are taking classes at one of community colleges, all international undergraduate students will complete orientation with NMSU-Las Cruces.
