Remembering every college deadline can be difficult, so we have compiled a list of important deadlines that ALL students should know. Click on each to learn more.
Add/Drop dates let you make changes to your class schedule during the first part of the semester. Either you need more credits for a scholarship, or you decided you need to switch to a different section of a class. Regardless of the reason, you cannot add or drop classes after these days. To find out the details for each semester, visit the Registrar's page or check your NMT email often - the Registrar sends out emails in advance of all academic deadlines.
Grade options let you change how a class is graded. Standard Letter grade is the default for most classes. Satisfactory/Unsatisfactory (Pass/Fail) and Audit are the two other kinds of "grades" a student can select. However - changing your option to S/U or Audit may change your status for scholarship/funding requirements. You may have to retake a class if you need it as a prerequisite for another class. Talk with your Faculty Advisor, the Registrar's Office, and Financial Aid before changing any grade option. After the the Grade Option deadline, your grade type remains unchangable. For more information on grade option changes and deadlines, visit the Registrar's webpage.
These NM Tech dates and deadlines are extremely important. If you have any questions regarding these deadlines, please contact OSL staff.
Regularly communicating with your Faculty Advisor is important and can be very helpful to your academic success at NMT.
Here's some things to keep in mind before communicating/meeting with your advisor:
If, for some reason, you are unable to reach your advisor, contact the Department Chair or the Department Secretary. Usually they will be able to help you with any issues you may have, or they can put you in contact with your advisor.
If all else fails, contact OSL staff. They can help you get you in touch with your advisor, the chair, or a temporary advisor, if necessary.
The NMT Schedule of Classes lists all the courses that will be offered in the upcoming semester.
The 2016-2017 Course Catalog includes all degree requirements, course offerings, and pre-/co-requisites for every class.
Navigating the NMT Banweb system can be confusing the first few times. To help, a step-by-step guide for registering online has been created here. One thing to keep in mind about Registration: if you haven't met with your advisor, you need to do that before you try to register. Your advisor will give your your APIN (Alternate PIN) that you need as a second-level password in Banweb to register for courses. Each semester's APIN is different, so you can't use a previous semester's APIN. Meeting with your advisor will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions you may have about registration, courses, or degree requirements.
Students may add, change, or drop a major or minor, or change their advisor, at any time during their degree work at NM Tech. Adding or changing a 2nd Major or Minor can have a big impact on your academic time-to-graduation, and students are encouraged to speak with their advisor first. Students are also strongly encouraged to speak with faculty in the discipline they are looking to add/switch to. Once you have decided that you are going to make changes, you can come to the Office for Student Learning to pick up an Undergraduate Change of Major, Minor, or Advisor form, or you can download one here. Follow the instructions on the form, and bring it to OSL staff in Speare 106 or 107; the changes will be processed within a week.
