Graduate Applications

Online Applications - Last Updated 1/2/2018

Update: We have implemented a new graduate application system using GradCAS and EngineeringCAS. If you are applying for graduate admission for Summer 2018 or later, you must use the application systems linked on the page Graduate Degree Programs.  We are still in the process of updating our instructions to match the new program, but the full application will now be handled in the new Centralized Application System. The ETS GRE code for GradCAS is 2580 and the GradCAS code for TOEFL is B886. The ETS GRE code for EngineeringCAS is 2633 and the EngineeringCAS code for TOEFL is B887. 


STOP: If you are completing an application for regular admission for Spring 2018 or as a special graduate ONLY, please use the instructions below. Otherwise proceed as directed above and do not follow the instructions below. 

New Mexico Tech's online applications are uploaded after completion, however, letters of recommendation, GRE and TOEFL scores must still be arranged for separately by the applicant. In addition, applications for the Ph.D. in Intelligent Systems under Mechanical Engineering also require a CV.
