Academic advising is important to student success! 
        All students are encouraged to meet with an academic advisor prior to registration.
Enrollment services at New Mexico Junior College offers academic advising for new students.  Continuing students are assigned to advisors based on major area of study or participation in specific programs.
Students should meet with their advisor to discuss academic and career goals.  As part of the advising process, the advisor will develop a degree or certificate plan for the student.  Following the plan helps ensure that a student stays on track for graduation.
