Welcome New Aggies!

Orientation is an important step in your transition to NMSU, and we’re excited to see you on campus and help you get the most out of your orientation.

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.
