HOLIDAY TRAVEL PLANS

REMINDER: CADETS MAY NOT STAY ON CAMPUS DURING THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS, OR SPRING BREAKS!

Please note NMMI does not manage holiday transportation, you must contact New Mexico Texas Coaches, LLC for details and pricing.

The bus companies are not responsible for delayed or cancelled flights and are not obligated to hold bus departures from the airport. We always recommend that cadets arrive at the airport well before bus departure times for return to Roswell. PLEASE CALL THE BUS COMPANY FOR DEPARTURE AND RETURN TIMES.

NMMI provides a shuttle to Roswell airport with departures from campus on the same days and times for cadets departing from campus to Albuquerque (see previous paragraph for times). NMMI does not provide a shuttle for returning cadets after breaks from Roswell airport due to limited resources and multiple arrivals.

New Mexico Texas Coaches, 1-800-287-5466, http://1800buslimo.rezgo.com/.

Sunshine Cab Company, (575) 910-3400, provides local transportation. The city of Roswell also operates local city buses and cadets in uniform may ride the city buses for free if they are in uniform.

NMMI DOES NOT MANAGE BUS SERVICES

 

 

THANKSGIVING BREAK GUIDANCE

Thanksgiving Break begins after class on 20 November. The Commandant has updated the Thanksgiving Sign Out Form. All cadets must read and comply with the items on the form, and turn in a signed copy as they check out. Barracks will re-open on 28 November at 1700 for cadets needing to return early. Please note that the first meal served on campus will be SRC on 29 November.

All cadets who elect to leave early or return late must provide written explanation/email through the TLA/SLA for approval. High School Cadets must have parents provide written explanation or send the email. That explanation must include reason for early departure or late return (i.e. transportation arrangements) with specific details, and acknowledgement that missing classes may jeopardize the grade for any missed classes. Instructors will determine the academic consequence of leaving early or returning late.

 

CADET TOUR CREDIT OVER THANKSGIVING

Cadets may earn up to 20 hours of tour credit over Thanksgiving break by performing community service. 10 of these hours may be converted to merits. A cadet who sees the opportunity to improve their deportment situation over Thanksgiving break has the opportunity to use those tour credits for merits. The ratio is one hour of tour credit equals three merits. Cadets must submit tour credit on company or organization letterhead, with a phone number, to their TLA upon return from break. The deadline to turn in Tour Credit is 11 December.

 

FINAL EXAM SCHEDULE

Fall 2015 final exam schedule can be found on the Registrar’s webpage: http://www.nmmi.edu/reg/ (under Announcements)

Transcripts may also be ordered from this page.

TRANSCRIPT MAILINGS
As NMMI is closed over the Christmas/New Year’s holiday period, be aware that the Registrar’s office does come in to process end of term transcripts requested. We will have postage on hand to cover those transcripts ordered between now and 18 December.

For cadets – you must put in your transcript requests now so we can build them and get postage for those transcripts. Transcripts ordered while you are on Christmas break will probably not be sent until after 6 January 2016.

For parents – if you know your son or daughter will need transcripts for scholarships, next school, applications, etc., please encourage them to come in and complete that request prior to finals week.

REGISTER FOR SPRING CLASSES!
Spring semester registration has begun. The current class schedule is available on the Registrar’s webpage: http://www.nmmi.edu/reg/ (under Announcements)

Encourage your cadets to register as soon as possible to avoid class closures. Also, if your cadet is not returning next semester, please inform your cadet’s Troop Leadership Advisor as soon as possible!

 

 

MEDICAL FURLOUGH PROCEDURES

Medical furloughs are for out of town medical appointments and generally for 24 hours only. Any additional time needed will need to be approved through the Commandant’s office.

  • The cadet must first see their TLA, then to the Infirmary to fill out the appointment paperwork to include their date of birth and the doctor’s name and phone number to allow for verification of appointments.
  • Information must be provided to the infirmary staff up to 2-3 business days to verify the appointment.
  • Once verified, copies of the paperwork will be given back to the cadet to take to the cadet’s TLA. If they are missing class, a Class Absence Form, or “white form” must be filled out.
  • Once the white form is complete, the cadet returns it to the Commandant’s Office to be placed on status. At the time of the appointment (if out of town), the Cadet checks out through the TLA Command Post, not the Infirmary.
  • All appointments must be verified in advance by the Infirmary.

What are Bronco BuX?

New Mexico Military Institute is pleased to offer – Bronco BuX – a convenient, secure way to make cashless purchases on campus while enrolled at NMMI. Bronco BuX can be purchased by anyone who wishes to add value to their Student ID card and utilize these funds to make purchases in your NMMI Cadet Store, The PX Grill, and Game Room Coffee Shop.

 

How Do They Work?

Your Bronco BuX account works like a debit card. The account allows you to draw upon pre-deposited funds to purchase books, school supplies, health and beauty items, food and snacks throughout campus. Having Bronco BuX is a great way to have the money you’ll need without carrying cash.

 

How to Purchase?

Take advantage of this unique opportunity to ensure your cadet’s school needs are covered by requesting a deposit slip and mailing it along with your check or paying in person at the Sodexo main office. You may also add value anytime by debit/credit card at https://nmmi.campuscardcenter.com. Funds transferred into Bronco BuX by debit/credit cards are available to cadets instantly and check deposits on the business day received.

If you have any questions, or if you are having trouble with your Bronco BuX account, please contact Nereida Gutierrez (575) 624-8230, or email her at nereida.gutierrez@sodexo.com

 

 

 

Class Rings

Herff Jones will be on campus 25 August from 11 am to 2 pm in the lobby of Bates Dining Hall.  Cadets who ordered rings in May need to stop by their table outside the PX (on the VMV side) to make sure their ring is exactly as they ordered it.  Cadets who did not order in May can do so at this time as well.  If you have any questions please call them at (575) 746-4574.

WE WANT YOUR FEEDBACK!

NMMI is a member of the Association of Military Colleges and Schools of the United States (AMCSUS) which consists of 44 independent military colleges and schools (7 Senior Military Colleges, 5 Military Junior Colleges, and 30 College Preparatory Schools/Academies). While the programs offered by these schools are varied, all members share the belief that the military education model has a dramatic and positive impact on the lives of our cadets. In an effort to help our schools meet the needs of future parents, AMCSIS has created a survey directed toward parents of current military school students.

Please take a moment to answer a short survey concerning which factors played a role in your decision to send you child to NMMI: https://virginiatech.qualtrics.com/SE/?SID=SV_2bZyLof1PIADbut

There are 20 questions, and the data gathered by the anonymous surveys will be collated and returned to the individual school. The data will help NMMI’s Marketing and Admissions officers to better understand how they can help future parents with their military school decisions.

Thank you for your continued support for NMMI!

FROM THE REGISTRAR – END OF TERM ACTIONS

Cadets were sent the following information:

As of 4 May 2015, all transcripts for current students will be held until final grades are in the system. This is the day we turn on final grading and academic standing (Academic suspension, probation, etc.) rules go into effect. As final grades are being entered by your instructors, you (as well as your parent) may see a status such as “Academic Suspension” or “Academic Probation” in Self-Service. Be aware that the status you may see is NOT final until ALL grades have been entered and processed.

 

For all who are on a “Financial Hold” stop, transcripts and or diplomas will not be sent until that is cleared by the Business Office.

 

FOR GRADUATES:

  • If you have changed your follow-on school or have not yet notified us of your school, now is the last chance to do this. Your next school will be printed on the commencement program.
  • If you are not going to walk at graduation, let us know. We want to be sure we have the correct address to mail your diploma home.
  • JC graduates must take the CAAP test to graduate. This is not optional.
  • If grades/actions prevent you from graduating, you will receive a letter.
  • All graduate and graduate-by-transfer cadet records will be taken to the Board of Regents for approval.
  • If you have any questions, stop by our area in Lusk Hall (2nd Floor).

 

 

END OF YEAR INFIRMARY INFORMATION

Cadets must pick up any medications that are being held at the infirmary prior to leaving campus for summer break. Controlled medications must be one of the last items picked up prior to departure. Any medications left over will be sent for destruction.

 

 

FINAL GRADES, TOURS, and SUSPENSION POLICY

Cadets must complete the last scheduled day of classes and if suspended/dismissed on or before that day they will receive a WP/WF (college) or W (high school) on their transcript.

  • High school cadets will receive withdrawal grades for the gaining school to use for transfer.
  • If a cadet is suspended after the last day of classes (1530 hours), but before or during finals the cadet will receive a final grade for the class computed with a zero grade for finals not yet completed.
  • Any cadet suspended or dismissed prior to graduation will not graduate with his/her class.
  • Suspended cadets must regain good standing to receive their diploma.
  • Cadets who complete all course requirements, including final exams, will receive letter grades on their transcripts for all courses completed. However, if a cadet completes all work toward a high school diploma or associate degree but is dismissed or suspended just prior to graduation but after the last day of classes, that cadet will not receive his/her diploma or degree, nor take part in graduation. The transcript will be annotated “Met NMMI requirements for graduation. Diploma not awarded. Cadet withdrew.”
  • A cadet otherwise eligible to return to NMMI at any time, may regain “good standing” upon the recommendation of the Commandant (if deportment) or the Academic Dean (if academic) with the approval of the Superintendent/President.
