Registration and Declaring a Major at ENMU

I'm a new freshman student, and I'm cleared for admission but have not registered. What do I do now?

  1. Call the Advising Center at 575.562.2338 to schedule an advising appointment.
    During your advising appointment, you and an advisor will:
    • Discuss any college class work that you have completed.
    • Register for your classes and discuss your academic future at ENMU.
    • Learn how to use the resources that the university has at your disposal.
    • Compile your "degree plan checklist" or use CAPP, that you and an advisor will use to plan your classes each semester until you declare your major.
  2. After your advising appointment, you will visit other offices on campus to learn about financial aid and scholarship opportunities, housing options, student accounts and how to get your student ID.

You are required to have all transcripts on file prior to advising. The Advising Center recommends that you bring an extra copy of your final official high school transcript and information about Advanced Placement (AP) or other pre-college credit to your appointment. Ask what materials we might need when you make your appointment.
