Applications and Fees
Applications and fees are applicable for one year (or four consecutive semesters). If you do not register for the session requested on your application and wish to postpone enrollment to a subsequent semester, you must notify the Office of Admissions at (505) 277-8900. If you do not enroll within that time period, a new application and fee are required.

Social Security Numbers
The Federal Privacy Act of 1974 requires that you be notified that disclosure of your Social Security Number is mandatory based on university regulations. Your SSN is used to ensure an accurate academic record and to provide full access to all services, such as financial aid. Your SSN will not be used as your primary University identification number. If you are unable to provide a Social Security Number, the university will assign an alternative number to you. This will not impact the admission decision.
Confidentiality of Records
Family Education Rights and Privacy Act Directory Information, including name, address, and telephone listing may be released without written consent unless the student has requested that such directory information be withheld. To request confidentiality, contact the Records and Registration Office at (505) 277-8900.
Transcripts and test scores submitted to the University of New Mexico for admission become the property of the University and will not be sent elsewhere or returned to the student.
