Junior College Advising

The Bronco Advising Center offers academic advising using a blended model of primary-role advisors and faculty advisors who work with cadets once they have declared a concentration. It is recommended that all cadets meet with their advisors at least once each semester.

Advisors are assigned in this manner:

  • Student-athletes are initially assigned to the Athlete Academic Advisor, Nikki Medina.
  • Academy Prep students are initially assigned to the Service Academy Prep Advisor, David Hosea.
  • ROTC students are initially assigned to the Service Academy Prep Advisor, David Hosea.
  • 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 Carlos Marrujo.

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 (below) with a number of 4-year colleges and universities. Cadets who follow these agreements will be in an excellent position to transfer and maintain progress toward their 4-year degree. Each articulation agreement is different. Cadets should talk with their advisors to determine if one of these schools and agreements will benefit them.

New Mexico Military Institute has entered into articulation agreements with a number of schools. Articulation agreements work to facilitate the smooth transition of students from NMMI to the receiving institution and reduce the duplication of coursework. General requirements are attainment of an associate’s degree and a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or higher. However, each receiving institution has specific requirements, and cadets who are interested in participating in one of these programs should check the links below and speak with their advisor for specifics.
