Welcome Aggie Families!

On behalf of New Mexico State University, welcome to the Aggie Family!

NMSU Family Outreach Programs understands the key role that family members play in their students’ lives and academic success by providing continued support throughout their college experience. Our office is devoted to being a support system to your family by empowering you with resources.

Whether you are new to having a child transition to college or you have been through this before, it is still a transition. During this transition, we want to make sure that you and your student feel supported every step of the way.
