New Students


Welcome to New Mexico Tech!

This office is the contact place if you are entering NMT with a documented disability for which you will need accommodations. Disabilitis for which we accommodate include:

  • Physical issues
  • Pschological disorders
  • Learning disabilities          

Most students, although by far not all, that request these services were accommodated previously in school or at home.

Disability services at the post-secondary education level are handled quite differently than they are in elementary, middle and secondary school.  We follow the regulations of Secion 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990. The student has many more responsibilities in procuring accommodations at the post- secondary level. It is important if you have a disability, for which yoy may need accommodating, that you contact the OCDS as son as possible so that the office cna start working with you. Our goal is to be prepared with your accommodations when you start classes. This is an area where being proactive is very important.

The OCDS Counselor will be available on MEET the CAMPUS days. If you would like to schedule a meeting, please do so ahead of time by calling 575-835-6619. We also encourage you to contact the office if you have any questions about disbility accommodations or counseling services.
