Admissions Process


Step 1: Submit an online admissions application - no processing fee required!

You may also download a paper application and mail or fax to the Admissions Office. However, please note all paper applications will require a $85 application fee.

Step 2. Submit your official transcripts

All applicants may send partial/unofficial transcripts or report cards to expedite the admissions process and then have official transcripts sent at the completion of the current semester. Junior college applicants must have final high school transcript showing graduation date and GPA or GED results and transcripts for any college work. Please have transcripts sent directly to our office by the school. .

Step 3. Submit Standardized Test Results

Junior College applicants please send SAT or ACT scores (TOEFL if International.) Scores may be sent directly to our office by the testing service. The school code for ACT is 002644 and for SAT is 4534. We also accept scores reported on official school transcripts.

High school applicants are required to take the NMMI administered Compass Admissions Exam. (Please contact us if you cannot come to campus and we can discuss the option of finding a testing center in your community.) High school applicants please have your school send any standardized test scores along with your transcripts.

Step 4. Submit the Prospective Cadet Questionnaire

Please fill out the Prospective Cadet Questionnaire and mail (of scan and email) to the NMMI admissions office ( admissions@nmmi.edu )

Step 5. Visit the Post (Required for High School Applicants)

You can schedule your visit to campus online right now or you can call us at 1-800-421-5376 to schedule or get more information.

High School Applicants: You will most likely wish to schedule your Compass test and entrance interview at the same time as your campus visit. Please contact the Admissions Office at 1-800-421-5376 for further information on setting up a campus visit, arranging testing time and entrance interview.

Step 6. Submit All Required Documentation

Physical Examination - You may download our Physical Examination form and have you physician complete it.

All cadets are required to participate in certain physical activities (e.g. marching in parade formation with a rifle, running the obstacle course, close order drill and intramural athletics), all considered essential to the traditions of a military school.

Health and Consent Form - Download the Health and Consent form and make sure you to sign the form. (If the applicant is under 18 years of age a parent or guardian must sign.)

Immunization Records - New Mexico state law requires that all immunizations are up-to-date and on file prior to enrollment. We also accept immunization records which are printed on your official transcript.

Birth Certificate - Please provide a copy of the applicant's official birth certificate.

Proof of Medical Insurance Coverage - Proof of Medical Insurance is required before or at matriculation day.

Once we receive your application and the required paperwork we will review your file, make our admission decision and notify you of that decision.

And don't worry if you forget a step, we'll keep track of your progress and notify you of missing documentation or additional information needed.
