If you are a first-time degree-seeking student, you must make an appointment with a student advisor before registering. Advisors will help you achieve your educational objectives by explaining requirements, answering questions about classes and programs, reviewing your past current and proposed coursework, guiding you in educational planning and helping you with academic and related problems.
Advisors are available by appointment or on a drop-in basis. Appointments are the best way to obtain advisement. You may make an appointment by calling the Student Services Office at 575-257-2120 or toll free at 800-934-3668. Advisors are also available on a first come, first served basis.
Qualified junior and senior high school students may enroll in the ENMU-Ruidoso Early College Program (ECP) and earn both college and high school credit while still enrolled in high school. The following high schools participate in the ENMU-Ruidoso Early College Program: Ruidoso, Hondo, Capitan, Tularosa, Carrizozo, Corona and Cloudcroft. Students must apply and be admitted to the ECP prior to registration. For more information contact your school counselor or call ENMU-Ruidoso at 575- 257-2120 or toll free at 800-934-3668.
If you are a student with health or physical limitations and would like assistance with the registration process, you may contact the Student Services Office at 575-257-2120 or 800-934-3668.
You may register in person at the college campus. After registering, go to the Cashier's office to make payment arrangements and pick up your schedule. Please check your class schedule carefully. If your printed schedule is not what you requested, return to the Student Services Office to make corrections. Registration for classes is not complete until payment is received.
Online Registration is available for continuing students.
Copies of the ENMU-Ruidoso Course Catalog are available online. Degree plans and course descriptions are found in the ENMU-Ruidoso Catalog.
Tuition and fees are charged according to the number of credit hours enrolled. All tuition and fee charges are subject to change without notice, upon approval of the Board of Regents.
ENMU-Ruidoso offers a Deferred Tuition Payment Plan. For details refer to the class schedule.
Registration will be cancelled for students who have not paid their account or set up a payment plan by the start of the second week of classes.
Degree seeking students are encouraged to apply for financial aid by completing the ENMU-Ruidoso Scholarship Application and/or the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at www.fafsa.ed.gov. Appointments for assistance in completing the FAFSA can be made by calling ENMU-Ruidoso Student Services at 575-257-2120 or 800-934-3668. Students applying for financial aid who have not yet been approved by the payment deadline must make other payment arrangements.
Course additions, deletions, or changes require completion of a Add/Drop form completed and returned to the Student Services Office. Course Add/Drops may also be processed on-line through the first week of classes. Verbally notifying your instructor does not officially change your registration status. (Deadlines apply: See the class schedule for details.)
ENMU-Ruidoso reserves the right to make changes to the published schedule or to cancel any classes which do not meet minimum enrollment requirements. Classes will be closed for enrollment when maximum class size has been reached.
Deadline to withdraw
Students unable to attend class or who no longer wish to attend the College must OFFICIALLY withdraw by the published deadlines (refund amounts vary depending on withdrawal dates). Withdrawal forms are available at the Student Services Office. Class withdrawals cannot be processed via on-line services. Verbally notifying your instructor does not officially change your registration status.
Auditing a class means you pay for and attend classes but do not receive a grade. Audited courses do not meet degree requirements and are not eligible for financial aid or VA benefits. NC (Not for Credit option) must be marked on the original registration document. Changes to registration cannot be made after the end of the drop/add period. (Deadlines apply: See the class schedule for details.)
Enrolling in more than 18 credit hours for the fall or spring semester or 8 credits in the summer semester is considered an “overload.” You must have written permission from an advisor prior to registering for more than 18 credits. Additional fees apply.
Tuition and fee refunds will be processed after the close of late registration. Refund amounts vary and are determined by the following schedule.
Applications for spring graduation must be submitted by April 10. Appointments to review degree plans are required prior to the deadline. Call 575-257-2120 or 800-934-3668 for an appointment.
