  • In those instances where NMSU cannot easily determine if admission requirements were met, the student may be required to submit an externally evaluated transcript in English.
  • If you are attending NMSU as a non-degree seeking student through the Office of Education Abroad, do not apply for Admissions until you have been instructed to do so by the Office of Education Abroad.  Failure to do so may result in a delay in your application being processed.
