Transfer Students

Transfer Students Timeline: Getting Started at Highlands Fall 2019

Ready to come to Highlands? An articulation agreement makes it easy! We are an open enrollment institution and accept applications on a rolling basis.

Step one: Review the Articulation Agreement (academic roadmap) between your two-year college and NMHU for your discipline. Follow this roadmap closely, and your courses will transfer to Highlands.

If we don’t have an articulation agreement for your program, go to step two.

Step two: Apply to NMHU. We are an open enrollment institution and accept applications on a rolling basis. As a part of our commitment to inclusion, we do not have an application deadline. Important date to remember: Registration for Fall 2019 opens April 1st, 2019 and classes fill up fast!

Step three: Request official transcripts from each college previously attended, and have them sent to admissions@nmhu.edu or New Mexico Highlands University Office of Admissions, Box 9000 Las Vegas, NM 87701

Step four: Fill out FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid). NMHU’s school code is 002653. For support please contact the NMHU Financial Aid Office by email  ( financialaid@nmhu.edu ) or phone at 505-454-3318.

Next steps

Once NMHU receives your online application and official transcripts, you can expect to be admitted within 1-2 weeks. Please contact admissions@nmhu.edu if you haven’t heard from us.

Once admitted, you will receive an electronic acceptance package in your email. Please pay close attention to everything included in this package and follow the instructions closely.

Activate your NMHU email account to begin receiving official correspondence from Highlands. Remember to check it often!
