New Student Orientation

Welcome to UNM-Los Alamos!

We are thrilled to welcome you to our campus as a new student.

New Student Orientation (NSO)

Student success at UNM-LA begins with our New Student Orientation sessions, designed to answer all the typical questions new students have about our campus. All students are required to attend a New Student Orientation session, either live or online. The orientation information will provide you with all the need-to-know essentials to help you be successful and to navigate our campus online and in person. In order to have your orientation hold lifted, you must either attend an in-person session or complete the online orientation and receive a certificate of completion.

Please note that orientation does not include registration for classes. Registration must be completed during a meeting with your academic advisor. To make an appointment, contact Student Services at 505-662-5919.

Your success on our campus is important to us. We look forward to meeting you in person and traveling with you on your educational journey.
