Getting Started-Online New Student Orientation

Instructions: This online tutorial is designed to provide the same information you would receive through the on-campus New Student Orientation. Each page will provide you with information and a quick self-test (the blue “Start” button on each page). The Pages are listed in the Page Index to the right. Please complete each page. You can also use the links at the bottom of each page to go to the next page.

To get started at NMSU-A you will need to:

  1. Apply for Admission
  2. Making sure your Financial Aid is in order
  3. Taking a Placement Test (if you don’t have ACT or SAT scores)

If you don’t already have these steps started, now is the time to start. You can use the links above to begin the process. If youíre already admitted and working on the next steps, it’s time to move on to the next step!
