             So happy we finally made it. Now a new journey starts.

All students will be assigned an advisor in their program of study. However, students may select a different faculty member as long as they are within the student’s program.

List of Academic Advisors


My NMSU help and online Registration


ETSE provides students with academic advising for degree completion. Together, you and your advisor will develop your degree plan consistent with your major and areas of interest, including minors and concentrations and fulfilling NMSU and State of New Mexico General Education requirements. Working with your advisor will help you to make timely and satisfactory progress toward your degree. Your advisor acts as a guide, helping you plot the course of your degree.


 Your responsibilities as a Student are to:

  • pay close attention to co- and prerequisites for each course; also if they are fall, spring, or summer only offered courses
  • consider your career goals when choosing electives or Minors,
  • contact and schedule appointments with your advisor when “advising week” has been announced,
  • track your individual progress by logging into the STAR Audit System,
