Center for Academic Advising and Student Support

Academic advisors assist students as they become self-directed learners by teaching them to develop educational plans directed toward their academic, career, and personal aspirations.

Who is required to meet with an advisor?

We encourage all students to meet with an academic advisor at least once a semester to stay on track toward completely their academic, career, and personal goals for attending NMSU. Advising holds are put in place to ensure that you have an opportunity to meet with an advisor to make the most educated decisions about your upcoming semester and long term degree planning. All new freshmen and transfer students, undecided or exploratory students, “Pre” majors (e.g. pre-nursing, pre-social work), students with less than a 2.5, and students whose GPA is less than required for their designated major requirements will have academic advising holds.

How do I find out who my CAASS advisor is?

Under Getting Started you will see the Find Your Advisor button. Under Look Up Your Advisor please enter your Aggie ID number and you will be provided the name of your assigned academic advisor. Please call 575-646-2941 to set up an advising appointment.

How do I set up an appointment with my advisor?
