Final exams start 4 Dec. and end 8 Dec. Check with your cadet as finals are dependent on their individual schedule.  Cadets MUST depart campus by 12:00 PM on 10 December, no exceptions



Winter Break


Barracks will re-open at 1700 Saturday – one day prior to the required return date for all breaks for those who must arrive early.


King’s Highway Charters & Tours will provide holiday airport transportation for Winter and Spring break.

During the holiday breaks cadets are not permitted to remain in the barracks since there are no services (barracks supervision, medical support, or food services). To purchase a bus ticket or for more information, please contact King’s Highway Charters & Tours at (806) 863-3867 or https://travelkingshighway.com/payments/  Please note NMMI does not manage holiday transportation. The bus companies are not responsible for delayed or cancelled flights and are not obligated to hold bus departures from the airport. We always recommend that cadets arrive at the airport well before bus departure times for return to Roswell. NMMI is not responsible for airline requirements for traveling minors – all paperwork should be completed in advance.

  • New Mexico Military Institute provides a shuttle to Roswell airport with departures from campus on the same days and times for cadets departing from campus to Albuquerque. However, we do not provide a shuttle for returning cadets after breaks from Roswell airport due to limited resources and multiple arrivals. All buses depart from Bates Dining Facility and arrive at the airport departure areas.  There are no scheduled stops for the bus or shuttle to Roswell or Albuquerque airports.
  • Sunshine Cab Company, (575) 910-3400, provides local transportation. The city of Roswell also operates local city buses and cadets in uniform may ride the city buses for free.
