International Students

An international student is any individual attending New Mexico State University while present in the United States on a non-immigrant student visa. Legal immigrants or refugees must present documentation of their status. For details, please see the website of the International Student Services Office on the NMSU Las Cruces Campus.

The general policies of the university apply to international as well as domestic students. However, some special policies are necessitated by federal laws applicable only to international students. Some admission and tuition exceptions have been developed for foreign military and their family members stationed in New Mexico. Contact the Admissions Office for details.
