Initiating your education with UNM

The first step in taking advantage of your educational benefits can seem like it will be the most tedious. At the VRC we have a, "the more, the merrier" approach to new students. If anything is unclear about your path through your benefits and towards graduation, please come into the office! As a new student, it is very likely that you will have at least a few questions about the specific manner in which UNM operates. Addressing the specificity is one of the greatest services that we can provide. We are staffed by former and current UNM students that can give you useful and relevant insight into your next move.

Set an Appointment

It is recommended that new students come and meet with a VRC staff member so that they can begin their education at UNM with confidence.  Please come by the office to meet with Alonzo Maestas, Brandon Lorenzo, or Chiaki Ramirez.  We are here to help you succeed in your educational journey!
