Former students of New Mexico State University who have not attended an NMSU campus for one full year or longer are required to make formal application for readmission. You must complete a Readmission Application with Admissions or Apply Online. Applications must be submitted to the Admissions and Records Office at least one day prior to registration. Readmission does not require an additional admission fee.

  • Readmission to Degree (Regular) Status
    A student who is seeking readmission and whose last NMSU admission status was degree seeking (regular), must complete a degree seeking readmission form. Additionally, if the student has attended other institutions during his/her absence from NMSU, the student must have official transcripts forwarded directly to the Admissions and Records Office by the Registrar of each institution and must be eligible to return to the college or university last attended. Academic admission status at the time of readmission will normally be determined by previous NMSU academic standing. However, academic performance at other institutions attended during the applicant’s absence from NMSU may be considered when determining the student’s academic admission status.
  • Readmission to Non-Degree Status
    A student who is seeking readmission and who previously attended NMSU-A under a nondegree admission status, must complete a nondegree readmission form. However, if the student wants to be readmitted under a degree (regular) status, the student must request a change-of-status at the time of readmission.

A grade report or unofficial transcript from previous institutions may be required at the time of readmission to show eligibility to return to colleges/universities previously attended.
