Office of Academic Support

Office of Academic Support-Your Key to Success at NMHU!

Each student is assigned an academic advisor to help ensure successful achievement of their educational goals. The advisor’s responsibility is to assist students in planning their program of study. Generally this includes, but is not limited to:

  • Explaining to the student the program as it relates to career goals
  • Helping the student to understand graduation requirements in the student’s curriculum
  • Providing a link to the college’s support services
  • Assisting the student with scheduling and course adjustments (drop/add)
  • Providing referrals and advice to ensure academic progress
  • Ensuring the student receives faculty advisement

Your adviser can also help you change your major, meet your general core education requirements, explain academic standards and regulations, and teach you how to use Degree Works to track your educational progress online.

The Office of Academic Support is located in the Felix Martinez Building, Suite 130. To make an appointment or contact an adviser, call 505-454-3188 or email . Walk in appointments are welcome.
