Admitted to UNM. What next?
Congratulations! Whether you are still taking courses at CNM while transferring to UNM or you have graduated from CNM and are fully transferring to UNM, you are that much closer to completing your degree. Below are some steps you will want to take as a brand new Lobo!
Your NetID is both the ID you use to login to just about everything at UNM and your UNM email address. When you create it, create an ID that you will be happy with for the duration of your time at UNM.
Go to the LoboCard office and get your ID card
The LoboCard office is located on the Plaza level of the Student Union Building (SUB).
Run a Lobo Trax Degree Audit
As a transfer student, your degree audit is the key to ensuring that transferrable credits and coursework transferred over the way you and/or your advisor thought they would.
Attend a TNT Orientation
The Transfer and Non-Traditional (TNT) student orientation is mandatory for registering for classes at UNM. Be sure to sign up for one of them and meet with your STEM Advisor prior to attending a TNT session.
Meet with your STEM department advisor to plan your courses
Your department advisor knows exactly what you must complete to earn your degree and can “map-out” your academic schedule for the coming semesters. If you do not know who your STEM department advisor is at UNM, click on the link above, find your major and the advisor will be listed there.
Take care of your finances
Fill out a FAFSA form at www.fafsa.ed.gov . Associates at the One Stop in Mesa Vista Hall are available to help you in person if you require help filling out the form. The Communications Center can also assist you by phone or email and their contact information can be found here . Also for your convenience, you can access UNM’s online financial aid chat room .
Every semester has a deadline to pay for classes before they are dropped. This and other information about .payment options can be found at www.unm.edu/~bursar/ . Be sure to pay your bill or set up a payment plan before the deadline or your classes may be dropped!
Clear any and all holds prior to registration
Holds can be cleared by advisors in your department or through University College. Keep in mind that other actions may need to be taken before an advisor can clear the hold, such as paying your Bursar bill.
Register for classes
you can register for classes through your my.unm.edu account (see unm.edu), under the Student Life tab. Click on Lobo Web, then on Registration and Records. Under Registration, click on Registration (Add/Drop Classes). Click the Accept Financial Responsibility button then the Submit button. Select the term for which you would like to make changes to your schedule. Click on class search to search for the desired class and follow the prompts to register for the class..
Use the Campus Map to find all of your courses before the first day of school
The buildings on campus are numbered and the alphabetical list of all campus buildings will tell you the number of the building in which your class(es) are located.
Complete an Enrollment Verification (if needed)
If your insurance or employer needs proof of your enrollment, you can complete an Enrollment Verification through National Clearinghouse.
