First - Year Orientation


Welcome Home LOBO

We are excited to welcome you as one of the newest members of our Pack! To help you get acquainted with UNM, all incoming First Year 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.

First-Year Orientation is for all incoming first-year students (freshmen level), including transfer students with 24 or fewer credits. For transfer students with more credits than 24 credit hours, we offer Transfer orientation.

  • Meet with your academic advisor
  • Put together your class schedule
