Registration Procedures

NetID and Password

Each student must have a UNM NetID in order to register for classes. This is required for many other important things such as checking financial aid, creating a UNM email account, and accessing online course content. Students must have been admitted to UNM at least one day prior to attempting to create their UNM NetID. There is no charge for this account. Get your UNM NetID. You will be asked for your date of birth and social security number to complete this process.

Maintain your UNM NetID settings


All degree-seeking UNM students are required to attend New Student Orientation to assist with their transition to the University. (Orientation is not required for non-degree students.)
