Resources for Prospective Students


If you are a first-time degree-seeking student, you must make an appointment with a student advocate before registering. Advocates will help you achieve your educational objectives by explaining requirements, answering questions about classes and programs, reviewing your past current and proposed coursework, guiding you in educational planning and helping you with academic and related problems.

Advocates are available by appointment or on a drop-in basis. Appointments are the best way to obtain advisement. You may make an appointment by calling the Student Success Center at 575-315-1120. Advocates are also available on a first come, first served basis.

Early College Program

Qualified junior and senior high school students may enroll in the ENMU-Ruidoso Early College Program (ECP) and earn both college and high school credit while still enrolled in high school.
