NMSU hosts one-stop shop registration day in Albuquerque

ALBUQUERQUE - Are you a high school senior who has been admitted to New Mexico State University for fall 2008, but you don't want to drive all the way to Las Cruces to register? You don't have to!

NMSU's New Student Programs in the Division of Student Success is hosting three registration days, June 3, 4 and 5, at NMSU's Albuquerque Admissions Center, 2444 Louisiana NE, on the first floor of the Compass Bank building across from the Coronado Mall.

"This is an opportunity for students from Albuquerque, northern New Mexico and southern Colorado to meet with their academic advisers, register for classes, confirm housing reservations, check on financial aid status, and meet with student support offices," said Valerie Pickett, director of student marketing and transition programs. "It's a one-stop shop without having to make the three or more hour drive."

Last year, 350 future students took advantage of the registration in Albuquerque, and the admissions staff is expecting a similar response this year.

New Student Programs is intended to help students begin their college career on the right path. During the programs, students receive answers to questions, learn about available resources and discover what NMSU has to offer.

During the new student registration, the future student registers for classes, takes the math placement exam, applies for housing and dining services, orders their student ID and makes payment arrangements for upcoming semesters.

NMSU applicants wishing to participate in the Albuquerque event should register on-line at http://newstudentprograms.nmsu.edu to reserve an appointment time. Future students, who do not attend the event in Albuquerque, may attend one of the registration and orientation sessions to be held during the summer in Las Cruces.

For more information you may call (575) 646-1055 or (575) 646-3121 in Las Cruces, or (505) 323-8774 at the Albuquerque Center.
