Where to Start
Freshmen, Transfer, Undecided, Student-Athletes, and Academic Probation Students:
Beginning in the Fall 2017 semester, NMSU’s Center for Academic Advising and Student Support (CAASS) will provide centralized advising for students across NMSU. The Academic Advisors at CAASS are trained to use a new analytics tool known as CRM Advise to provide alerts based on student performance indicators. The academic advisors will assist students as they become self-directed learners by teaching them to develop educational plans directed toward their academic, career, and personal aspirations.
With the new model, current students who already have an established relationship with their faculty advisor can continue to work with that person. We understand how important your faculty mentors are and want you to continue to partner with them. In addition to working with your faculty mentor, you will still receive proactive outreach and support from your academic advisor in the new CAASS in Garcia Annex.
CAASS will automatically place “academic advising” holds to prevent registration for all new and second semester freshmen and transfer students, undecided or exploratory students, student athletes, “Pre” majors (e.g. pre-nursing, pre-social work), students with less than a 2.5, and students whose GPA is less than required for their designated major requirements will have academic advising holds.
Sophomore, Junior and Senior Undergraduate Students:
All faculty in the Civil Engineering Department serve as undergraduate advisors for students on a case-by-case appointment. During peak registration times, many professors will have an open-door advising policy. Students should attempt to contact an advisor in their area of concentration. For students who are undecided between structures, water resources, environmental and geotechnical areas of concentration should meet with Dr. Lambis Papelis, Dr. J. Phillip King, or Dr. David Jauregui.
CE Graduate Students should seek advice about courses from the student’s research advisor to compliment their thesis/dissertation research and coursework. Students and Advisors should consult the appropriate degree program in the catalog.
