Aggie Welcome & Orientation

When you enroll at New Mexico State University Carlsbad, you join a supportive community. We want you to know about the many resources here for you, be comfortable finding your way around campus, and learn what you can do to be successful in college. That’s why we have students attend Aggie Welcome & Orientation their first semester.
New, first time students and new transfers are required to attend orientation; readmit students who last attended 3 or more years ago are encouraged to attend as well. Call (575) 234-9238 for current AWO dates and times.
If you need special accommodations, please contact Haley Jones, Student Accessibility Services Coordinator at (575) 234-9321 or to make arrangements in advance.
