Moving to Online Instruction

Through the end of the Spring 2020 semester, you will be receiving classroom instruction and submitting assignments online. Be prepared for changes to the syllabi for your classes as things will most likely have to be tweaked for online. Here are some additional tips to follow:

  • Log in daily! Things can change quickly in the world of online learning, and you will want to make sure you stay on top of things
  • Look for instructions from your instructor. Your instructor may communicate with you via email or through Canvas.
  • Know and understand the expectations from your instructor(s) including due dates. Your instructor may provide an addendum to the course syllabus.
  • Have access to resources needed to complete activities scheduled for the day (such as Canvas and enough bandwidth to watch videos). Contact your instructor if you have any concerns about being able to access course content.
  • Know the best way to reach your instructor with questions about the course activities. Your instructor should share this with you in an email or through Canvas.
  • If you have a lab, please clarify with your instructor the lab activity expectations.

About College Advising

Mission Statement: New Mexico Military Institute Academic Advising connects cadets with quality resources that support academic success and empower cadets to create meaningful academic plans consistent with their personal and professional goals as they develop into leaders in the military and civilian sectors.

NMMI delivers college academic advising using a blended model of primary-role advisors, who have offices in Toles Learning Resource Center, and faculty advisors, who work with cadets who have declared a concentration. It is recommended that all cadets meet with their advisor at least once each semester.

Advisors are generally assigned in this way:

  • Student-athletes are initially assigned to the Athlete Academic Advisor, CPT Marrujo.
  • Academy Prep students are initially assigned to the Academy Prep Director, SCPO Scott.
  • ROTC students are initially assigned to the Academy Prep Director, SCPO Scott.
  • Students with a strong interest in one of our concentrations may be assigned directly to a faculty advisor or may be moved to a faculty advisor after meeting with their assigned advisor.
  • Students who are still exploring their options are assigned to one of our Exploratory Advisors, LTC Smith and MAJ Scott.

The NMMI College Advisor page includes a list of advisors, with phone numbers and offices, as well as a link to faculty advisors.

Very soon after starting school at New Mexico Military Institute, cadets should start thinking about what school they will attend post-NMMI. This will aid them in choosing classes that will prepare them for their future studies and are more likely to ensure timely attainment of their bachelor’s degree after transfer.

To facilitate transfer to a 4-year institution, NMMI has articulation agreements with a number of 4-year colleges and universities. Cadets who follow these agreements will be in a good position to transfer and maintain progress towards their 4-year degree. Each articulation agreement is different. Cadets should talk with their advisor to determine if one of these schools and agreements will benefit them.
