NOTE: If a Cadet will miss classes while on furlough this does not excuse the Cadet from classes or coursework. It is the Cadet’s responsibility to complete all assignments and coursework to stay on track. For early departures and late returns from Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Breaks, Cadets must provide their TLA with a written request for leaving early or returning late. TLAs will then request the cadet be placed on status. Instructors will determine the academic consequence of leaving early or returning late.

NMMI Parent Club Swap Shop Guidelines

The Parent Club Swap Shop is a new program being offered through the joint efforts of the Commandant’s office and the NMMI Parent Club.  A limited number of used uniform items are available through the Swap Shop for Cadets that need to replace damaged or poorly fitting items.  The Swap Shop may save cadets some costs when needing to replace uniforms. However, Cadets should not expect to find all items needed at the Swap Shop and should still expect to purchase new uniform items at the Cadet Store at their own expense.

Here is how the program works:

  1. Cadets can swap ill-fitting or damaged uniform items on a 1 for 1 basis. No money is exchanged.
    2. Most of what the Swap Shop has is blue pants, white shirts and ACU’s. Some other items including black jackets and hats may occasionally be available.
    3. The Swap Shop is located in a shipping container behind Saunders Barracks and will be available BY APPOINTMENT by emailing Parent Club volunteers at NMMIswapshop@gmail.com.
    4. The Parent Club will schedule Swap Shop appointments only when Cadets are not busy with other responsibilities and as approved by the Commandant’s Office.
  2. Because the Swap Shop is located outside and has no electricity, appointment times are dependent on weather and daylight.
  3. Cadets should arrive at the Swap Shop with the items they wish to swap on hangers if possible.  It is ok if items are damaged or unclean.
  4. It is best if Cadets wear summer P.T.’s or similar lightweight shorts and shirt so uniform items can be put on over clothing to test the fit.  No changing rooms or private areas are available.
  5. The Swap Shop is staffed with background checked parent volunteers.  These parents have donated their own time and resources to have a Swap Shop available to Cadets. Please be patient and respectful.
  6. The Swap Shop parent volunteers will not release items they consider to be ill fitting.  However, if minor alterations are needed it is the Cadet’s responsibility to have them done at their own expense.
  7. Cadets are still responsible for maintaining serviceable uniform items and uniform repairs as outlined in the Blue Book.  If a Cadet receives a replacement item they must also be inspected by their TLA to ensure proper fit.

Cadets were sent the following information concerning the end of the semester:

 

As of 02 May 2016, all transcripts for current students will be held until final grades are processed. 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.

GRADUATES

  1. On 12 May, we will notify Valedictorian/Salutatorian of their selection. Those who were previously informed to prepare a speech, please be ready.
  2. If you have changed your follow-on school or have not yet notified us of your school, now is the time to do this. Your next school will be printed on the commencement program.
  3. 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 to you.
  4. If grades/actions prevent you from graduating, you will receive a letter.
  5. All graduate and graduate by transfer cadet records will be taken to the Board of Regents for approval.

 

COURSE WITHDRAW

Drops with a WP/WF (WP – Withdrawn while passing; WF – Withdrawn while failing) are accepted through end of day Thursday, 05 May. Please initiate a drop request through your advisor. Per the catalog, “Drops are accepted through the end of day on the last day of academic classes prior to the start of academic retreat for final exams. Drops are not approved after final exams begin.”

NEW FOR 2016-2017 – THE SIX-YEAR INCENTIVE

(Approved by the Board of Regents to commence with the graduating class of 2017)

NMMI values the contributions of our six year cadets. For students who are continuously enrolled for six years, NMMI will provide a $5,000.00 check that can be used to further your education at your next institution, pay for a study abroad experience or maybe you will start a multi-million dollar corporation with it! Six years at NMMI is an outstanding accomplishment, the NMMI Six Year Incentive recognizes that achievement.

 

FROM THE OFFICE OF THE REGISTRAR

The following new programs apply to new and returning cadets effective Fall 2016. Returning cadets should visit the Registrar’s Office to submit necessary documentation.

 

US Armed Services Tuition Discount

Effective Fall 2016, in recognition of the sacrifices made by military families and our desire to provide leaders for New Mexico and the nation, the NMMI Board of Regents has approved in-state rates for military families. Active duty members of the US Armed forces and their dependents as well as honorably discharged veterans of the US Armed Forces and their dependents are eligible to pay in-state rates at NMMI.

To qualify for this discount cadets must provide one of the following documents to the Registrar’s Office:

  • DD 214 – Department of Defense separation document showing an Honorable discharge.

Western Undergraduate Exchange

Effective Fall 2016, New Mexico Military Institute is a member of the Western Undergraduate Exchange (WUE) Program for students from the WICHE States. This program provides Junior College students from Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, who are otherwise admissible and have a composite ACT super-score of a 22 or a composite SAT super-score of 1530 with tuition at 150% of the in-state rate.

 

Texas Reciprocity Agreement

Effective Fall 2016, NMMI offers Junior College students from Texas who are otherwise admissible and have a composite ACT superscore of a 22 or a composite SAT superscore of 1530 with tuition at 150% of the in-state rate.

NMMI E-News 11 March 2016

Have you Re-Enrolled?

 April 6, 2016 is the early enrollment deadline (priority date).

Enrolling early allows you to take advantage of several incentives including:

  • Early consideration for scholarships
  • Pre-registration for fall classes
  • Priority consideration for Corps leadership positions and Cadre selection
  • AND a reduced re-enrollment fee ($75 instead of the standard $150 fee)

Help the Corps of Cadets!

There is still time to help your cadet’s troop get a FULL WEEKEND of Free Revs!

Last weekend, the Corps of Cadets marched in the annual NMMI Cancer March – their efforts help raise money for the Chaves County Cancer fund, a local organization that assists Roswell-area cancer patients with transportation, wigs, groceries etc. while they are undergoing treatment for cancer.  Donations stay in the Roswell community, and the NMMI Corps of Cadets contributes to the fund annually.

So far the cadets have raised nearly $2,000 for the Chaves County Cancer Fund!  But there’s still time to get in cadet donations!  The troop with the largest donation total will receive a weekend of Free Revs (i.e. extra sleep!) once the totals are tallied in April!

Donations can be made to NMMI Cadet Activities and mailed to 101 W College prior to 6 April.

Make sure you put the troop letter in the memo line, if you’re sending it in for your cadet’s troop!

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.

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.
