Aggie Welcome and Orientation (AWO)

All new, incoming freshmen and transfer students must complete orientation before registering for classes. Orientation will provide the tools and information to make your transition to NMSU as easy as possible. Not only will you learn more about NMSU and the resources available here, but you will also meet new friends and discover that NMSU is a supportive and caring community.

The online Aggie Welcome and Orientation System is designed to help you make your reservation for orientation. We are here to help make your transition into New Mexico State University as smooth as possible. Please contact us if you have any problems.
