Academic Advising

Academic advisors can provide guidance through the admission process, degree and course selection, and registration. Advisors also assist with changing a major, following up instructors’ early alerts, filing graduation petitions, and planning for baccalaureate work. Advisors can help resolve registration errors, as well. Degree-seeking students must meet with an advisor before registering for each semester to check that their chosen classes will continue to make progress toward their degrees and have their advising hold lifted.

Financial Aid

The financial aid officer provides information on financial resources available to degree-seeking students. These resources may include scholarships, grants, and loans from the federal or state government, independent organizations and/or UNM-LA itself. UNM-LA bases its financial aid offers from the FAFSA, so please take time to file this survey online every year. Don’t assume you are ineligible—there are many opportunities to pursue.
