New Student Orientation

Upload Your COVID-19 Vaccine Verification Here!

Congratulations on your acceptance to The University of New Mexico! We are excited to welcome you as one of the newest members of our Pack!
To help you get acquainted with UNM, all incoming students complete an orientation program that provides them with the opportunity to learn about campus resources, make connections with faculty and staff, and register for courses.
Considering students enter UNM with diverse knowledge and experiences, we offer a variety of NSO options that are tailored for each student. When you sign-in to our reservation system, you will automatically be directed to the orientation program that was designed for your admitted student type. Click on the admitted student types below to learn more about the orientation you will need to complete before registering for your courses.

COVID -19 Vaccine Mandate

We are working to keep everyone safe by requiring new students to becoming vaccinated or to request a medical, religious, or online exemption. Get started now on submitting your vaccination card or request for an exemption. This is a requirement for attendance at any UNM campus!

Universal Design for Learning

We want to ensure our NSO programs meet the needs of all learners.  If you anticipate any barriers, including access to technology or academic accessibility, please let us know so we can modify our delivery.

Discover UNM... Virtually!

If everyone were the same, there'd only be a need for a few clubs, organizations, and resources. But everyone is different. Cultural, political, academic, religious - you name it. Jump in. They're a great way to meet like- and unalike-minded people, make friends and discover - together - what it means to be a Lobo.
