Credit for Military Service

Credit for Military Service

ENMU‑Roswell allows credit to United States military personnel for courses and/or military occupational specialties (MOS) as evaluated by the American Council on Education (ACE) in the Guide to the Evaluation of Educational Experiences in the Armed Services. The amount of credit will not exceed 32 semester hours for undergraduates. Military credit is accepted as elective credit by the Admissions and Records Office. Students may request that specific courses be applied to associate degree requirements. Before credit will be considered official, copies of courses completed or the MOS rating must be sent directly to the Admissions and Records Office from a record center. If the ACE Guide does not have an evaluation of a course that a student has completed and if the course is comparable to a course offered by ENMU‑Roswell, a student may wish to take a validation examination. Guidelines for validation examinations are outlined above.

Service Members Opportunity Colleges

ENMU‑Roswell complies with and supports the principles and criteria of the Service members Opportunity Colleges (SOC). This program allows service personnel to complete study interrupted by military obligations.

Residency Requirements for Tuition

Resident or nonresident status is determined in accordance with the uniform definition established for all New Mexico institutions by the Higher Education Department, State of New Mexico (NMHED). The Admissions and Records Office determines and assigns residency status.

For tuition purposes, the NMHED defines a resident as a financially independent adult over 18 years of age who has lived in New Mexico for at least one year prior to the semester for which resident status is requested and who has met all other residency requirements. The NMHED has published a brochure which outlines the regulations and exceptions governing residency requirements for tuition. This brochure may be obtained through the HED at the following website: http://hed.state.nm.us/students/residency-requirements.aspx Students who wish to change their official residency status must complete a “Petition for In-State Tuition Classification” form available at the Admissions and Records Office. A change of official residency status is never automatic, and it is always the student’s responsibility to initiate the petition.

Special Residency Tuition Information

Special Residency Tuition information on the following programs may be obtained from the Admissions and Records Office:

  • All out-of-state members of an American Indian nation, tribe, and pueblo, located wholly or partially in New Mexico, regardless of the residence of the member prior to acceptance at a post-secondary educational institution shall be eligible to pay the in-state tuition rate.
  • Any person, his or her spouse or dependent child, not otherwise entitled to claim residence, who is an active member of the Armed Forces of the United States or armed forces of a foreign country assigned to active duty in the State of New Mexico will be assessed resident tuition rates.
  • A veteran of the Armed Forces of the United States shall be deemed an in-state resident for purposes of determining tuition and fees at all state institutions of higher learning provided that veteran is eligible for veterans’ educational benefits under federal law.
  • Any out-of-state student enrolled in six or fewer semester hours qualifies for out-of-district tuition rates.
  • Senior citizens (65 or over) are charged a reduced tuition waiver of $5.00 per credit hour for the first six (6) credit hours per semester.

Western Undergraduate Exchange Program (WUE)

The Western Undergraduate Exchange program (WUE) offers students a reduced out-of-state tuition rate of 150 percent of tuition. WUE states include Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington and Wyoming. Participants must maintain their state residency. While on WUE, students may not establish residency in New Mexico.

ACCUPLACER Placement Test

The ACCUPLACER Placement Test helps new students determine their skill levels in the areas of English and math. All entering students are required to test in each area unless they meet the exemptions. The placement test takes one and a half hours to complete and is given Monday through Thursday from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Friday’s from 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. on a walk-in basis.  For more information, please call Testing Services at (575) 624‑7227 or (575) 624-7183 or (575) 624-7258.

Students with at least an associate degree are exempt from taking the ACCUPLACER Placement Test. To correctly place the student, the ACCUPLACER Placement Test must have been taken within the last three years. Student-requested testing is limited to twice during an academic year. The assistant vice president responsible for the unit may approve additional retesting. Students seeking a certain certificate are not required to take the placement test. Please see program requirements for testing information.

Transfer students who have not earned at least an associate degree may be exempt from individual areas of the ACCUPLACER Placement Test if they meet any of the following:

  • English (Essay)
  • Transfer equivalent courses
  • Transfer 15 credit hours or more – with a GPA of at least 2.5 AND – a college-level English course with a grade of C or better.
  • Transfer 30 credit hours or more – with a GPA of at least 2.0 AND – a college-level English course with a grade of C or better
  • Math
  • Transfer equivalent math credit
  • Applied/technical math credit will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.

Part-time, non-degree-seeking students need not take the placement test unless they are enrolling in a class where English, math, or reading is a prerequisite. If a student changes to a full-time or degree-seeking status, they must take the placement test at that time. No student will be awarded a certificate or an associate degree without achieving the required level of university skills.

NOTE: If a student has completed more than one set of ACT or SAT tests, the highest score will be used to determine the student’s exemption from placement testing.

Transfer Students

TRANSFER STUDENTS

Transfer Students and Financial Aid

Students transferring from another college or university and applying for financial aid must request that official academic transcripts be sent to the Admission and Records Office at ENMU-Roswell. This is a requirement for any transfer student applying for financial aid.

The assessment of a student’s academic progress will be based on the student’s applicable academic record to include all credit hours attempted from other institutions, whether or not financial aid was received.

Students Transferring to ENMU-Roswell

Students transferring to ENMU‑Roswell must file official transcripts from each college or university attended. Students with fewer than 30 semester hours of acceptable transfer credit must also have official high school transcripts sent. If students on suspension from another institution wish to enroll in courses at ENMU‑Roswell, they may appeal to the Academic Standards Committee for an admission waiver. They should be WARNED, however, that credits earned during suspension periods may not be accepted by receiving institutions.

Acceptance of Transfer Credit

Credit is accepted for college‑level work from institutions accredited by an accrediting body recognized by the Commission on Recognition of Postsecondary Accreditation (CORPA). Courses which would not be accepted include, but are not limited to, some technical/occupational courses, doctrinal religion courses and basic skills level courses. ENMU-Roswell does not grant credit for work experience.

Credit for college-level work from an institution that is a candidate for accreditation by a CORPA recognized body will be awarded after 15 credit hours have been earned at ENMU‑Roswell with a minimum grade point average of 2.0.

To further enhance articulation between all state-supported institutions in New Mexico, ENMU-Roswell adopts the principle of treating transfer students as native students in the application of credit toward certificate or degree requirements.

Evaluation of Transfer Credit

Evaluation of the applicability of acceptable credits that are transferable to a students’ degree program is performed by Admissions and Records staff.

Students who wish to request a transfer credit evaluation must complete an Admission Application to ENMU-Roswell, and have original official academic transcripts sent directly to the University from each institution previously attended. Transfer credits are evaluated when all transcripts for that student have been received. Applicants are required to declare a major for evaluation of transfer credit. Transfer credits are evaluated only for students seeking a degree or certificate. Transfer grade point averages are used in the calculation of grade point averages for graduation “With Honors” only. Foreign students who wish to have foreign transcripts evaluated for transfer credit must provide an English translation of all transcripts. The English translation must demonstrate how the courses are equivalent in grade and content to those taught in the United States. Please contact the director of Admissions and Records for more information.

Transfer Students Probation and Suspension

If students on probation from another university wish to enroll at ENMU-Roswell, their first semester of attendance will be a probationary semester. Students may be suspended at the end of that semester if they fail to obtain a 2.0 semester grade point average.

If students on suspension from another institution wish to enroll in courses at ENMU-Roswell, they may appeal to the Academic Standards Committee for an admission waiver. They should be warned, however, that credits earned during suspension periods may not be accepted by receiving institutions.

Transfer Among NM Colleges and Universities

Transfer among NM Colleges and Universities

To facilitate transfer of students and course credits among New Mexico’s colleges and universities, the state’s public institutions of higher education are required to accept in transfer courses taken within approved modules of lower-division course work and apply them toward degree requirements. Several transfer guides have been developed through collaboration of New Mexico’s public postsecondary institutions, consistent with requirements of state law (21-1B, NMSA 1978). Students enrolling for first-year or second year study at a New Mexico institution and wishing to prepare for possible transfer into a degree program at another institution are advised to take these courses during their freshman and sophomore years.

New Mexico Common Course Numbering System (NMCCNS)

New Mexico colleges and universities have devised a Common Course Numbering System (NMCCNS) to assist New Mexico students who are transferring between institutions within the state. The NMCCNS uses four letters and four digits. The letters indicate the subject area. The first of the four digits indicate whether the course is freshman (1) or sophomore (2). The middle two digits act as one number and indicate the sequence of the course. The last digit represents the number of credit hours assigned to the course, typically 3 or 4. All transferable courses have a New Mexico course number in parenthesis following the ENMU-Roswell course number in the New Mexico General Education Common Core and the course descriptions. The courses with the NMCCNS designation share similar course content and are directly transferable.

Student Responsibility

The New Mexico General Education Common Core (Core) is designed to include as many course options as possible. While all courses with NMCCNS will transfer, the degree plans of: (1) ENMU-Roswell; and (2) their selected four-year transfer institution may restrict the courses that may be used to fulfill Core requirements. Courses in the Core with NMCCNS designations, but not in the degree plans, would transfer as electives. Courses in the Core without NMCCNS designation may not transfer. We encourage students to develop a degree plan with an advisor during the first semester. Planning for effective transfer with maximum efficiency is ultimately the student’s responsibility. Responsible transfer planning includes early and regular consultation with the intended degree-granting institution to assure that all pre-transfer coursework will meet the requirements of the desired degree.

Transferable Lower-Division General Education Common Core

Students enrolling for first-year study who have not yet selected either an academic focus or the institution where they wish to graduate are advised to take courses during their freshman year outlined in the Lower Division General Education Common Core. For students enrolled at any public institution in New Mexico, the following courses are guaranteed to transfer to any other New Mexico public college or university, and apply toward associate and baccalaureate degree program requirements. Students should consult advisors at their current institutions regarding which specific courses fit these categories. Students preparing for careers in engineering, health sciences, or other profession-related fields are advised that some of this course work may not transfer toward general education requirements but in most cases will apply toward elective requirements.

Lower-Division 64-hour Transfer Modules

Students who have selected a field of study but have not yet selected the college or university where they wish to earn their baccalaureate degree are advised to take courses during their freshman and sophomore years outlined in one of the Lower-Division 64-hour Transfer Modules. For students enrolled at any public institution in New Mexico, these courses are guaranteed to transfer to any New Mexico university and apply toward bachelor degree program requirements. Students should consult advisors at their current institutions regarding which specific classes fit these categories. Lower-division transfer modules presently exist for:

  • Business • Biological Sciences
  • Criminal Justice • Early Childhood Education
  • Engineering • Physical Sciences
  • Social & Behavioral Sciences • Teacher Education
  • Human Services

Modules for additional areas of study are being developed. Copies of these Transfer Modules may be obtained from the Advising Services. Call (575) 624-7163 for more information. For Transfer Modules in Braille or audio format, contact the Disability Services Office at (575) 624-7286. For more information, go to the New Mexico Higher Education Department’s Web site: http://www.hed.state.nm.us/colleges/modules.asp.

Complaint Procedure

Student Services

Student Services

Students at ENMU‑Roswell come from various backgrounds and age groups. Therefore, the University offers a variety of services and activities designed to enrich the learning experience. ENMU-Roswell’s Student Services Center provides academic advising, career counseling and degree planning.

Advising Services

The Advising Services staff uses interest inventories, such as Focus 2, when career counseling. Interest inventories help students learn more about themselves in order to establish direction and choose a major suitable for their career goals. The Advising Services staff coordinates with the faculty to help students plan a series of courses and activities which will move the students toward their educational goals.

Throughout the learning process, independent planning is encouraged with advising office support. This support includes the following:

  • Considering and discussing goals and career paths.
  • Providing information about basic skills requirements, general education requirements, and major requirements.
  • Suggestive advising, academic and industry testing guidelines relating to career exploration and setting realistic career goals while promoting student independence.

Advisors provide guidance in the course selection process to ensure that courses fulfill the student’s chosen major in a timely and efficient manner.

Advisors will provide students with different options if allowable by the chosen major and go over the pros and cons of the options to assist students in making their decisions. However, students are ultimately responsible for any and all decisions regarding their class schedules and degree plans.

The Academic Advisors advise all first-time degree seeking students, transfer students (transferring in on probation/suspension), probation students with zero credit hours earned, and returning students on suspension or with zero credit hours earned, with the following stipulations:

  1. Once students with declared majors have successfully completed midterm examinations with a GPA of 2.0 or better, they are encouraged to see their faculty advisor.
  2. Returning students on suspension are required to reapply for admission and submit an academic appeal prior to seeing an advisor.
  3. Degree-seeking students meeting the stipulations listed below may forgo advising under the following conditions:
    • The student has a cumulative GPA of 2.0 or better and
    • The student has earned 24 credit hours of institutional credit or the student has earned a total of 24 credit hours between transfer and institutional credit with at least 12 hours obtained from an ENMU campus.

All students, regardless of standing or level, are always welcome to utilize the advising center and its services. The Student Services Center is open year round from 7:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday, and 8:00 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Friday. For more information or to set an appointment, please call (575) 624-7294. Appointments are strongly encouraged to assure prompt and high quality service.

  • The Upward Bound program is designed for eligible high school youth. It seeks to generate the skills and motivation necessary for them to succeed in education beyond high school through academic instruction and individual tutoring. For more information, call (575) 624-7202.

Student Support Services

Clubs and Organizations

Any ENMU-Roswell student group officially recognized by the University is declared to be a student organization and is subject to the Clubs, Organizations, and Advisor Handbook. Initial recognition of a student organization constitutes approval of its proposed program and purposes (constitution). Recognition is a charter to exist and continued recognition may be withdrawn or suspended by the Vice President of Student Affairs. Recognition by ENMU-Roswell gives a student organization/club the right to use the name of ENMU-Roswell and in turn implies the responsibility of the organization to use the name wisely. Recognized organizations may use facilities according to established policies.

Each organization should apply for recognition through the student services department. The organization will be asked to complete and turn in a copy of its proposed constitution, by-laws and an organizational application form, all provided on the ENMU-Roswell website. Its purposes shall be compatible with the philosophy and educational objectives of ENMU-Roswell. Any changes in the constitution of a student organization must be reviewed and approved by the Student Organizational Review Committee (an ad hoc committee formed to review student issues) before they become effective.

Student clubs and organizations are encouraged to participate in activities.

The application form and handbook can be accessed via the ENMU-Roswell web site. Please submit forms to the Student Services Building. For more information, please call (575) 624-7012 or (575) 624-7379.

A current and updated list of ENMU-Roswell clubs and organizations is available on the University website.

ENMU‑Roswell encourages students with interests not represented in this list to establish additional associations or clubs. For more information about ENMU-Roswell student organizations please call (575) 624-7012 or (575) 624-7379.

Intramural sports include 3-on-3 basketball, 5-on-5 basketball, flag football, racquetball, 1-mile run/walk, agility run, shuttle run, badminton, table tennis, and bench press competition.

Student Profile

Student Profile

Each semester close to 4,000 students register for credit and noncredit courses at ENMU-Roswell. Most reside in Chaves County. There are no “typical” ENMU-Roswell students. The college attracts a diverse student population, including high school graduates and senior citizens. The average age for full-time students is 26. Students attend ENMU-Roswell for a variety of reasons. Some are completing their first two years of college before transferring to another university. Some are completing a certificate program for entry into their chosen career field. Some students are returning to college after being away from the classroom for many years, while others are taking a class or two between full-time work schedules to upgrade their job skills.

Student Outcome Assessments

Student Outcome Assessments

As part of its continuing effort to maintain the quality of academic programs, ENMU-Roswell has implemented the student outcome assessment (Collegiate Assessment of Academic Proficiency—CAAP). ENMU-Roswell has designed this program to determine the growth of student achievement in general education and changes in student attitudes and values.

The students also benefit from this program. They can determine growth in competency levels and compare their individual scores to national scores. In addition, students can give potential employers evidence of competency levels. Student participation in the assessment program is encourage. Students scoring above the national average receive a certificate of achievement from ACT.

Student On-Campus Housing

Student On-Campus Housing

American Campus Communities operates the Sierra Vista Village student housing complex, which provides innovative, on-campus student housing.

Special Services Program

The Special Services Program provides an important component in the comprehensive community college mission of ENMU-Roswell by providing specialized certificate programs in Food Service, Office Skills, Child Care Attendant, Building Maintenance, Auto Mechanics, Veterinary Assistant, Stocking and Merchandising, Animal Healthcare, and Special Topics.

The programs are designed for students who have disabilities, but who, with occupational training, are able to obtain entry-level positions in competitive employment. Class sizes are small, and emphasis is on the completion of the skills necessary for employment.

Neither a high school diploma nor the placement test is required (unless the student is applying for financial aid, in which case both documents are required). You must be accepted to the University before you can apply to this program. However, admission into ENMU-Roswell does not ensure admission into the Special Services Occupational Training program.

Entrance Requirements for the Special Services Occupational Training Program

The following criteria and/or documentation will be used to help determine acceptance into the program:

  1. A professional vocational assessment, less than two years old, showing the student’s abilities and skills in relation to the specific vocation of interest.
  2. Documentation and full disclosure of medical/developmental disabilities.
  3. Minimum 18 years of age.
  4. Self-medicate with no assistance. The ability to follow directions from nurse, doctor, or pharmacy and manage medical and psychological issues appropriately and to take the appropriate medicine at the right time.
  5. Independently awaken to an alarm clock and demonstrate the ability to get to all classes and practicum sites on time.
  6. Maintain appropriate personal hygiene/laundry/dorm room.
  7. Demonstrate effective communication skills (read and write) including the ability to process information, follow instructions from faculty and staff, and respond appropriately. Demonstrate appropriate social behavior including ability to get along with peers and follow rules.
  8. Meet minimum entrance requirements for the selected study discipline.
  9. Tetanus vaccination within 10 years. If going into Child Care, TdaP; if going into Veterinary Assistant, it is recommended to have the current rabies vaccination.

Limited health services are available to students on campus and are provided by a certified family nurse practitioner. The nurse practitioner will diagnose and treat common illnesses. The student is responsible for the following within a 24-hour period:

  • Transporting himself/herself to and from appointments and pharmacies in town.
  • Obtaining and paying for prescription and recommended nonprescription treatment.
  • Following recommended treatment plan as written.
  • Self-administering medication.
  • Notifying the office immediately of any change in medications.
  • Presenting medical clearance and release reports to the office upon return to classes.

In the event a student needs to see a physician for more extensive medical treatment, it is the responsibility of the student (and the parent/guardian) to find additional services and insure that the medical provider accepts their insurance. We encourage students to have a local primary care provider set up prior to the beginning of each semester.

In case of a major emergency, the staff at ENMU-Roswell will activate the emergency response (i.e., call 911 for an ambulance at the student’s expense and notify parent/guardian). The staff of ENMU-Roswell will not always remain with the student during their medical care; the faculty and staff do not take responsibility for transporting students to and from medical appointments. Once the student arrives at the medical facility, the provider becomes responsible for the student’s care.

With the exception of Special Topics, the occupational programs have been approved for Federal Financial Aid assistance. Potential students are encouraged to apply for Federal Financial Aid by completing the FAFSA, which can be obtained through the Financial Aid office. In addition, students are encouraged to apply through the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation (DVR) for possible financial assistance.

Students who complete all program requirements will receive a Certificate of Occupational Training (COT). The COT requires:

  • A minimum of 50 credit hours for the first-year program (25 core 1 credit hours, and 25 vocational credit hours for each program);
  • A minimum of 48 credit hours for the second-year program (23 core 2 credit hours and 25 vocational credit hours for each program);
  • A minimum grade of “C” in all vocational courses, labs, and practicums/co-ops; and
  • A 2.0 overall GPA.

Numbering of Courses

Numbering of Courses

Courses at ENMU‑Roswell are numbered according to classification. Acceptance as transfer credit at another institution is at the discretion of the receiving institution. Courses numbered from 090 to 099 are remedial courses; 100 through 199 are primarily for freshmen; and 200 through 299, for sophomores.

Students should select courses according to their classification but may take courses one bracket above their classification, i.e., freshmen may take 100 and 200 numbered courses; sophomores, 200 and 300; etc. Permission to do otherwise must be secured from the vice president for Academic Affairs. Courses numbered from 100 through 299 are termed lower‑division hours. Courses from 300 through 499 are termed upper‑division hours and are normally taught in Roswell only on an extended degree or instructional television basis through ENMU.

Notice to Students

International Students

INTERNATIONAL STUDENTS

International students may be considered for admission as undergraduate students on a full‑time basis as a non-immigrant with an F-1, M-1 or J-1 visa status. Non-citizens must have an equivalent educational background to that required for United States of America citizens.

The international student must submit the following documentation for review to apply for admissions at ENMU-Roswell. All documents pertaining to undergraduate admission should be sent to the Admissions and Records Office:

  • Admissions Application for ENMU-Roswell
  • An acceptable statement of financial responsibility that demonstrates the student’s ability to meet all related financial obligations for the entire length of the program prior to entry into a program of study at ENMU-Roswell. This documentation may include, but is not limited to copies of bank statements, letters of reference from financial institutions, and personal letters of commitment from individual supporters.
  • Acceptable documentation to demonstrate proficiency of the English language; for example, a TOEFL iBT score of 61 (173 computer-based, 500 written), completion of the highest level of an intensive English program, or documentation that English is the primary language of record in the student’s country of residence. ENMU-Roswell will also accept IELTS scores of at least 5.5 in lieu of TOEFL.
  • Complete transcripts of high school and all previous college credit hours – the applicant must request that official transcripts and test scores be sent directly to ENMU-Roswell. Only certified copies of transcripts, state, or national exams should be presented. Transcripts of high school and college credit earned at a foreign institution of learning must be formally evaluated by an agency such as the Transfer Evaluation Service (TES), who will then provide ENMU-Roswell with an official evaluation of United States of America educational equivalencies.

International applicants must have these materials on file with the University at least 90 days prior to the semester for which application is being made. When these requirements are fulfilled, reviewed by the Office of Admissions and Records, and approved, an I-20 Certificate of Eligibility and a letter of admission will be issued to the student. The I-20 document must then be submitted to the appropriate Foreign Embassy for consideration, approval, and the issuance of an acceptable F-1, M-1, or J-1 Visa. The student must be in possession of the student Visa, and an I-94 document to travel to the United States.

All charges, including tuition, fees, housing, meals, books, etc. must be paid at the time of each registration. Health and accident insurance is mandatory for all international students.

History

History

Roswell Community College was officially established as a branch of Eastern New Mexico University in the fall of 1958 under the leadership of Donald T. Rippey. From 1958 through the fall semester of 1962, the college conducted classes in the evening at Roswell High School. In January of 1963, with an enrollment of 75 students, eight daytime classes were held at the old post office. This established, for the first time in Roswell, a daytime coeducational college program.

When Walker Air Force Base closed on June 30, 1967, Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell acquired 234.5 acres, including 27 major brick structures and numerous frame construction buildings. Roswell Community College was renamed Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell. The college spent the summer moving into the new buildings, and in September of 1967, began holding classes on its new campus.

For the first time, ENMU‑Roswell could offer, in addition to its academic transfer program, a successful career and technical program which included training in various skilled trades and work in the health occupations areas. Enrollment has increased from 157 part-time students in 1958 to close to 4,000 students in the spring of 2015, illustrating the need for educational opportunity in Southeastern New Mexico.

Through a series of statewide and local bond issues, a number of new buildings have been constructed. Several other facilities have been renovated and expanded to meet the changing needs of the ENMU-Roswell campus. Between 1996 and 2010 the following projects were completed: Arts & Science Center, Instructional Center renovation, Swimming Pool renovation, Instructional Technology Center, Aviation Maintenance expansion, Auto Tech/Occupational Training Center repair, Health Science Center Phases I and II, Sierra Vista Village, and renovation of the Campus Union Building. The Student Services Center, which centralizes student services functions, was completed in January of 2013.

Health Education

Health Education

The programs in the Health Education unit include certificates and degrees preparing students for a career in health care. Many of the credentials in the unit are designed to build one on top of another, a process called stacking, in order to get the student into a job as quickly as possible while creating a pathway to more advanced certifications, licenses, and degrees. Students may complete Associate of Science degrees in Nursing, Occupational Therapy Assistant, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Science, Medical Assisting, and Respiratory Therapy; Certificates of Occupational Training in Child Development, Emergency Medical Services, Medical Assisting, and Medical Coding; and Certificates of Employability in Nursing Assisting, Emergency Medical Services, Homemaker/Home Health Aide, Pharmacy Technician, and Phlebotomy. Many of the certificate and degree programs prepare students to sit for the state or national certification or licensure exams upon completion of required coursework.

Students in many of our programs are given the opportunity to enhance individual learning through the use of state-of-the-art medical simulation equipment.  The simulation experience can reduce medical errors, improve clinical decision making skills and enhance student engagement to improve the quality of care provided by our students.

Because of ongoing changes in accreditation and educational requirements in many health fields, this catalog applies to all students entering or reentering Division of Health programs or classes during the effective dates of this catalog.

NOTE: The majority of health programs require a background check either before entry into the program or within the first week of instruction after progression to the program core courses. Students having a misdemeanor conviction in the 36 months prior to progression and/or felony conviction in the 7 years prior to progression will not be allowed to progress and/or continue in the selected program.  A felony conviction may affect a graduate’s ability to complete clinical requirements, sit for state or national certification examination or to attain state licensure.

Graduation

Graduation

All students expecting to complete their programs of study (either certificate of employability, certificate of occupational training, certificate of completion, associate of arts, associate of science, or associate of applied science) must file an application for graduation by the correct deadline. Failure to submit the application prior to the deadline date may result in processing delays and/or require the student to graduate with the next scheduled graduation class. Refer to the University Calendar at the back of this catalog for application deadline dates.

Students who file an application for graduation before the close of the semester preceding the expected completion date will be notified in writing of requirements needed to complete that program of study. The application must be filed with the Admissions and Records Office.

In addition, any student with 45 or more credit hours will be reviewed by Advising Services and by the instructional units for eligibility for graduation. After all degree requirements have been evaluated, Advising Services and the instructional units will notify Admissions and Records of any additional students who are eligible for program completion and graduation.

At the end of the semester in which the student is eligible to graduate, diplomas will be ordered and students will be notified through the ENMU-Roswell campus email system of their final graduation status. Diplomas will be mailed to graduation students approximately eight to ten (8-10) weeks after the end of the semester. Degrees will be posted at the same time diplomas are ordered. Students wishing to participate in commencement ceremonies and have their names published in the graduation program or newspaper must state so on their application for graduation.

Students must have a cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in order to meet graduation requirements.

NOTE: Participation in graduation ceremonies does not constitute meeting certificate and degree requirements. Completion of certificate and degree requirements will be verified once final semester grades have been posted.

Graduating with Honors

Graduation honors are awarded based on the student’s CAREER GPA. Career GPA is determined by combining the cumulative GPA of all Eastern New Mexico University courses AND the cumulative GPA of all course work completed at other institutions. For pre-graduation publicity and commencement material, “HONORS” status will be determined at the end of the semester preceding graduation.

Honors are awarded to students who graduate with a career cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 3.50 or higher. The notation “WITH HONORS” will be printed on the diplomas and posted on the transcripts of all such students.

Grading Systems

Grading Systems

The following are letter grades given and their equivalents in grade points:

“A” – Four grade points per credit hour – “A” grade indicates exceedingly high achievement.

“B” – Three grade points per credit hour – “B” grade indicates above average achievement.

“C” – Two grade points per credit hour – “C” grade indicates satisfactory achievement.

“D” – One grade point per credit hour – “D” grade indicates marginal achievement.

“F” – Zero grade points per credit hour. “F” grade indicates unsatisfactory achievement.

Other report abbreviations and their meanings include the following:

“I” – Incomplete – The “I” grade is given for passing work which could not be completed due to circumstances beyond the student’s control. The following policies apply to “I” grades:

  1. In no case is an “I” to be used by faculty to avoid the assignment of “D” or “F” grades for marginal or failing work.
  2. Change of an “I” to a satisfactory grade is accomplished by the instructor submitting a change of grade form to the Office of Admissions and Records when the work has been completed. An “F” grade may be given for inadequate work or work not completed in a timely fashion.
  3. A student cannot change an “I” by reenrolling in the course. Repeating a course will give the student a new grade but will not remove the “I” from the previous registration.
  4. An “I” grade will not replace an “F” grade for grade point average determination.
  5. It is the student’s responsibility to remove an “I” by completing his/her course work in a manner acceptable to the instructor before the end of the next regular semester. In the event that an instructor no longer teaches at ENMU-Roswell or the instructor cannot be reached, the student should contact the appropriate assistant vice president for further assistance.
  6. Failure of the student to complete required coursework and/or failure of the instructor to submit the appropriate Grade Change Form before the end of the next regular semester will result in the conversion of the “I” to a grade of “F”.

“N” – No grade reported by instructor.

“W” – Withdrawal – “W” indicates formal withdrawal from class prior to the withdrawal deadline for each semester.

“S” – Satisfactory – “S” indicates satisfactory completion of a short‑term workshop or other unique course designated for “S‑U” grading.

“U”– Unsatisfactory – “U” indicates unsatisfactory work in a short‑term workshop or other unique course designated for “S‑U” grading.

“NC” – Audit. “NC” indicates that students are taking the course for no credit.

Students may access their grades and a calculated semester and cumulative GPA through the secure sign-in area of the ENMU-Roswell website at the end of each semester. Only those courses with grades “A,” “B,” “C,” “D,” or “F” are included in the calculation of the GPA. Grades of “AU,” “NC”, “I,” “N,” “S,” “U,” and “W” are excluded from the calculations, but are included on the grade report.

Changing Grades

Once grades are posted to the academic history and permanent record of the student, they may be changed only through the submission of a Grade Change Form which will include justification of the change, and the approvals of the instructor and the appropriate program chair and/or assistant vice president.

Students wishing to appeal a grade already on record must petition the instructor. Further appeal may be made to the appropriate assistant vice president. If the appeal is not satisfied at the unit level, a student may file a formal appeal for consideration to the Academic Standards Committee (Please refer to the Appeal Process as described in the catalog section, “Academic Policies and Procedures” for additional information.)

Grade change requests will not be considered after a period of one year from the posting of grades on the transcript.

Repeating Courses

A course may be repeated once to improve a grade. The last of the two grades will be included in the student’s semester and cumulative grade point averages, and will also be considered the grade of record for the satisfaction of degree requirements.  If for any reason the student wishes to repeat a course for a second time to improve a grade, the student must obtain an official “Application to Repeat a Course” form, take it to the appropriate assistant vice president for approval, and present the signed form to the Office of Admissions and Records prior to registering for the course. The following restrictions apply:

  1. When a student repeats a course, all grades will show on the transcript.
  2. The last grade earned will be counted in the semester and in the student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) regardless of whether it is higher or lower than the previous grade.
  3. For courses that are not repeatable for credit, the grade from the last approved repeated course will be counted in the semester and in the student’s cumulative grade point average (GPA) and will be considered the grade of record for the satisfaction of degree requirements regardless of whether it is higher or lower than the previous grade.
  4. A student may request to repeat the equivalent course at a non-ENMU-Roswell Campus by submitting the “Repeat of Course Form” to the Admissions and Records Office after securing prior approval from the appropriate assistant vice president. If the request is approved, the grade for the transfer repeat course from a non-ENMU-Roswell Campus will be recorded on the ENMU-Roswell transcript as a transfer course and the grade from the ENMU-Roswell course will be excluded from the student’s grade point average. If a student has already taken an ENMU-Roswell course twice, the course may NOT be repeated to raise the grade.
  5. Students may also repeat a non-ENMU-Roswell equivalent course (transfer course) at the Roswell campus by submitting the “Repeat of Course Form” to the Admissions and Records Office after securing prior approval from the appropriate assistant vice president. If the request is approved, the grade for the transfer repeated course from the non-ENMU-Roswell Campus will be excluded from the transfer GPA and the ENMU-Roswell course will be included in the student’s grade point average. If the course has already been taken twice at the non-ENMU-Roswell institution, the course may NOT be repeated to raise the grade.
  6. In any of the above circumstances, where there is a difference of credit hours or course number level, the value of the repeat course will be used for calculating the cumulative GPA and determining the satisfaction of degree requirements.
  7. A grade of “I”, “NC”, or “W” for a repeat course does not replace a previous grade and the original grade will remain in the student’s cumulative GPA.
  8. Program requirements may contain further restrictions regarding repeated courses for the satisfaction of program requirements. Please refer to specific program requirements in this catalog and consult with program representatives as needed for further clarification.

Academic Standings

Students who do not maintain adequate academic standing (Good Standing) will begin to progress from Academic Warning to Academic Probation and finally to Academic Suspension.

Academic Warning

  • All students whose GPA falls below a cumulative GPA of 2.0 for the first time will be placed on Academic Warning at the end of that semester.
  • Students whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.0 after being placed on academic warning will continue on academic warning status as long as their semester GPA is 2.25 or higher, or until the Cumulative GPA is again above 2.00.
  • Students whose cumulative GPA and Semester GPA are below 2.0, and have attempted less than 16 hours will remain on academic warning status. Once 16 hours have been attempted, failure to meet either the semester or cumulative GPA requirement will result in Academic Probation Status.

Academic Probation

  • Students whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.0, whose semester GPA is below 2.25, and who have attempted at least 16 hours, will be placed on Academic Probation.
  • Students whose cumulative GPA remains below 2.0 after being placed on academic probation will continue on academic probation status as long as their semester GPA is 2.25 or higher, or until the Cumulative GPA is again above 2.0.
  • Students whose cumulative GPA remains below a cumulative 2.0 and semester GPA remains below 2.25 after one semester of probation will be placed on Academic Suspension.

Academic Suspension

  • Students suspended for the first time will be allowed to apply for readmission to ENMU-Roswell after one regular academic semester (fall or spring) has elapsed.
  • Students suspended for a second time will be allowed to apply for readmission after two regular academic semesters (fall or spring) have elapsed.
  • Students suspended for a third time will be allowed to apply for readmission after a period of five years has elapsed.
  • Readmission in any of these instances is not automatic.

Students whose cumulative GPA is raised to 2.0 or higher after being placed on Academic Warning, Academic Probation, or Academic Suspension, will be placed back into Good Standing status. Subsequent failures to meet the above academic standards will result in Academic probation or suspension statuses, accordingly.

Continuing students on academic warning, probation and suspension waiver may enroll only during regular registration periods and once grades have been posted for the current semester. Failure to meet the conditions of the Suspension Waiver may result in disenrollment, further suspension or denial of readmission to the University.

Students suspended from any ENMU campus are suspended from the University. Suspended students must apply for readmission to the University, regardless of the campus of enrollment, and must submit an Academic Standing—Appeal for Readmission Form to the Academic Standards Committee. The Academic Standards Committee will review the appeal and determine whether or not the student will be allowed readmission to the university. Students allowed readmission after suspension will be placed on a suspension waiver with specified conditions for enrollment. These conditions may include a required minimum semester GPA, repeat of certain courses, or other requirements deemed appropriate by the Academic Standards Committee.

Auditing

Students may audit classes by indicating NC (noncredit) on the registration form. Students may change the registration to credit during the drop/add period provided that all requirements for regular admission are met. It is also possible for students to register for credit and change to audit during the drop/add period. Courses taken for noncredit will appear on the student’s transcript as “NC” with no credits recorded and no grades assigned.

Fees for auditing classes are the same as for taking classes for credit.

Dean’s Honor List

Students enrolled for 12 or more credit hours at ENMU‑Roswell whose end‑of‑semester GPA is 3.25 or better will be listed on the Dean’s Honor List. Audit courses are not included in the credit hour calculation. This list is prepared for the fall and spring semesters only.

General Requirements

General Requirements

In order to allow sufficient time for the preparation of registration materials, students should apply for admission at least six weeks prior to registration. Although ENMU-Roswell is considered an open enrollment institution, it benefits the student to have the following documentation submitted to and reviewed by the Admissions and Records department staff to assist advisors with proper advisement and placement into classes, and for processing and awarding of financial aid:

1) A completed application for admission;

2) A high school transcript from an accredited institution (North Central Association and/or the State Department of Education); or

A satisfactory score on a high school equivalency test, and/or completion of the ACCUPLACER Placement Test (see information in the following section)

3) Official transcripts from all previous colleges, universities, and technical-vocational schools attended

4) Students graduating from a home school program or other non-accredited agency will be considered for admission with the following stipulations. Students of non-accredited programs who have not obtained a high school equivalency might not be eligible for certain types of financial aid.

  1. a) High school cumulative GPA of 2.5 or above AND
  2. b) ACT scores of 15 or above, OR
  3. c) Completion of a high school equivalency credential.

Students transferring to ENMU-Roswell with fewer than 30 semester hours of acceptable transfer credit must also have official high school transcripts from accredited institutions sent to ENMU‑Roswell.

Official transcripts are those sent directly by an official of the high school and or college(s)/technical school(s) to the ENMU-Roswell Office of Admissions and Records. The University cannot accept copies of transcripts in a student’s possession. All transcripts must be submitted to the Office of Admissions and Records by the end of the first regular semester. A hold will be placed on the files of those students whose files are not complete. Students will be prevented from registering for future semesters until their files are complete. A student misrepresenting or failing to disclose information in the completion of the admission form will be subject to disciplinary action and possible dismissal from the University.

Students may also contact the Financial Aid Office for assistance with the application process. To be considered for all types of aid, students should apply by the priority date posted on the ENMU-Roswell financial aid webpage, since campus-based funds are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students must be degree seeking in a financial aid eligible program and be taking classes toward their degree in order to be eligible for financial aid.

For the best opportunity to receive the maximum financial aid awards, students should complete the FAFSA as soon as possible each year. Once the school receives the Student Aid Report (SAR) electronically, first-time entering students will receive a letter via mail, and continuing students will receive an email informing them of any documents needed to complete their financial aid file. If a student’s FAFSA is selected for verification, that student must submit all requested documentation to the Financial Aid Office for review. Students should check their ENMU-Roswell student email accounts frequently.

Federal Student Aid: Students must submit their FAFSA using the income information from the Prior-prior year (PPY). This means students will submit the FAFSA using tax information from two years prior, optimizing the opportunity to use the IRS Data Retrieval Tool (DRT).  Awards at ENMU-Roswell are awarded on a first-come, first-serve basis, so applying early is always best if students want to be considered for all available aid.

Types of Financial Aid

Financial aid is money in the form of loans, grants, employment, and scholarships that is available to students to help pay the cost of attending a college, university, or vocational/technical school. Financial aid comes from the federal government, which is the largest provider of aid, as well as, state governments, schools, and a variety of other public and private sources. Financial aid programs fall within two basic categories: merit-based and need-based aid.

  • MERIT-BASED AID is given to students who have a special characteristic, skill, talent or ability. A scholarship is an example of merit-based aid. Merit-based aid is usually a gift that does not have to be paid back, although a student who receives merit money may have to promise to teach or perform some other service when they complete school.

Scholarships: Institutional scholarships and other scholarship deadline dates vary. Scholarship information is available at the Financial Aid Office or on the Financial Aid webpage.

  • NEED-BASED AID is given to students who can show they need financial assistance to pursue a college education by completing the FAFSA. Most financial aid is awarded on the basis of need.

There are three (3) kinds of need-based aid:

  1. Grants: gifts that do not have to be paid back. The types of grants available at ENMU-Roswell are Pell Grants, FSEOG and State Grants.
  2. Loans: borrowed money that has to be paid back over a period of time, usually after a student leaves school. ENMU-Roswell participates in the Federal Direct Subsidized and Unsubsidized Loan programs, and the Parent Loan for Undergraduate Students.
  3. Work-study: money that the student earns by working at a part-time job. Funds used to pay for the majority portion of a work-study student’s earnings come from either the Federal Work-Study program or the State of New Mexico Work-Study program.

Information concerning types of aid and eligibility criteria can be found at www.roswell.enmu.edu or by contacting the Financial Aid office at 575-624-7400.

Federal Student Loans

Direct Loans are low-interest loans for students and parents to help pay the cost of a student’s education after high school. The lender is the U.S. Department of Education (the Department), though most of the contact will be with your loan servicer.  With Direct Loans, you

  • Borrow directly from the federal government and have a single contact—your loan servicer—for everything related to repayment, even if you receive Direct Loans at different schools.
  • Have online access to your Direct Loan account information via your servicer’s website.
  • Can choose from several repayment plans, and you can switch repayment plans if your needs change.

Student loans are not automatically awarded to students at ENMU-Roswell. All students interested in student loans must submit a student loan request with all required documents to the ENMU-Roswell Financial Aid Office. Your request will be reviewed and an award notice will be sent via email. Students must complete entrance counseling and sign the master promissory note before any loan funds will be disbursed.

Entrance counseling

The purpose of entrance counselling is to ensure you understand the terms and conditions of your loan prior to your loan disbursing.

Exit Counseling

The purpose of exit counselling is to help you understand your rights and responsibilities as a student loan borrower, help you setup repayment plans, and give you contact information after you leave school. The federal government requires that you complete exit counselling prior to graduating or stop attending at least half-time.

Verification

Verification is a process in which information submitted on a student’s FAFSA is reviewed by the Financial Aid Office for accuracy and completeness. Each year, the Federal Department of Education selects a percentage of all FAFSA’s received each year for verification. The verification process requires the Financial Aid Office to confirm the data supplied by the applicant and/or parent(s). Although ENMU-Roswell cannot determine who will be selected for verification each year, students should anticipate selection and compile the documents required to complete the verification process. If your FAFSA is selected for verification, submit all required documentation to the Financial Aid office for review. Any delay in providing required documents to complete the federally mandated verification process may impact your financial aid award package.

Professional Judgement/Special Circumstances

Professional judgment refers to the authority of a school’s financial aid administrator to make adjustments to the data elements on the FAFSA. The FAFSA does not provide families with a place to explain special circumstances affecting their ability to pay for the student’s education. The Federal Need Analysis Methodology (FM) is likewise a rigid formula, with no provisions for exceptions. To remedy this, Congress has delegated to the school’s financial aid administrator the authority to compensate for special circumstances on a case-by-case basis with adequate documentation.

If you feel you have a special or unusual circumstance, contact the Financial Aid Office. Additional forms need to be submitted before a special circumstance request is reviewed. Please keep in mind that professional judgment is administered on a case-by-case basis, and financial aid administrators have the authority to use professional judgment but are not required to do so.

The decision of the financial aid administrator is final. There is no appeal. By law, neither the school’s president nor the US Department of Education can override the financial aid administrator’s decision.

Awards

All financial aid offers and awards are based on information provided by students, and/or spouses and parents of students, availability of funds, and eligibility requirements. Any award may be revised based on changes in enrollment, cost of attendance, family contribution or failure to meet Satisfactory Academic Progress. Withdrawals or reductions in enrollment may affect an award or any future awards. Offers are subject to revision at any time due to changes in policy, law, regulations, additional resources, calculation, or funding.

Award Notification

Students will receive an award notification any time awards are increased, decreased, canceled or new awards added. The notification will direct students to the secure website where they can view financial aid awards and eligibility.

Summer Financial Aid

Summer financial aid is available to students if funds are available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Students must be registered for classes and have submitted a Summer Financial Aid Request Form. Pell Grants are available to students who have eligibility remaining for the academic aid year that was not used in the fall and spring semesters.

Financial Aid Disbursement

ENMU-Roswell will automatically transfer any financial aid awards to pay toward allowable University costs. Allowable costs may include tuition, student fees, and bookstore charges. Any aid received in excess of posted, allowable University costs will be refunded to the student in the form of a check or direct deposit from the Business Office.

Course Repeats and Financial Aid Eligibility

Repeat classes may only count towards financial aid eligibility if (a) the course was previously failed or (b) the course was previously passed only once. This means a student who fails a class may repeat a class and have it count as credit toward the determination of enrollment status for financial aid purposes, but a student who has already passed a class may only repeat the class once more (e.g., to receive a better grade) and have these credits count toward financial aid eligibility. The Financial Aid Office does not determine if you may repeat a class, only whether you may be eligible for financial aid for a repeat class.

Financial Aid Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP)

Students receiving federal or state student financial aid must maintain Satisfactory Academic Progress (SAP) at ENMU-Roswell in order to remain eligible for financial aid. Satisfactory Academic Progress is defined by federal regulations, in conjunction with the university, as obtaining and maintaining a semester and cumulative grade point average (GPA) of 2.0 or better, a cumulative completion average of 67 percent or better and having an academic standing consistent with graduation requirements.

The Financial Aid Office evaluates SAP after the completion of each semester (fall, spring, and/or summer). Students will receive notices regarding SAP status via their ENMU-R student email accounts.

Federal regulations require that the standards applied to students receiving financial aid also apply during periods when a student is not receiving federal financial aid. All semesters of enrollment must be considered for SAP (even summer, and even when a student is not receiving federal financial aid).

Students who have already received a Bachelor’s Degree are not eligible for grants and will not be eligible for other aid at ENMU-Roswell due to the timeframe policy.

Please read the Satisfactory Academic Progress policy on the financial aid webpage for more detailed information regarding requirements to maintain financial aid eligibility.

Financial Aid Appeal Process

Students may appeal to the Financial Aid Office for reinstatement of financial aid. The appeals are reviewed upon submission for students who have been denied financial aid due to unsatisfactory academic progress or have exceeded the time frame for financial aid. Only mitigating circumstances will be considered. The appeal form is available on the Financial Aid webpage.

Return of Title IV Federal Aid/Class Attendance

Title IV Federal Student Aid funds are awarded under the assumption students will attend classes for the entire period for which the aid is awarded. When students completely withdraw, officially or unofficially, they may no longer be eligible to receive the full amount of Title IV aid originally awarded. Academically related attendance activities are recorded by physically attending classes, taking exams, submitting required assignments, attending school assigned study groups, etc.

  • An official withdrawal is when the student withdraws using the University’s official withdrawal process and there is documentation to support the withdrawal.
  • An unofficial withdrawal is when a student stops attending classes and/or receives all F’s at the end of the semester because he/she stopped attending classes and did not officially withdraw.

When students who began the academic period did not complete at least 60 percent of the period, a recalculation occurs to show the percentage of aid that was earned. This percentage is derived by dividing the number of days the student attended by the number of days in the period.

If the amount of aid disbursed to the student is greater than the amount of aid the student earned, any unearned funds must be returned to the appropriate aid program. If the amount disbursed to the student is less than the amount the student earned, and for which the student is otherwise eligible, any earned funds may be made available to the student as a post-withdrawal disbursement.

Students completely withdrawing from classes are liable for any balance due to ENMU-Roswell after the return of federal student aid funds.  Go to roswell.enmu.edu to access the complete ENMU-Roswell Refund policy.

If a student is reported to Financial Aid as never having attended a class or classes at ENMU-Roswell by the faculty, the student will be contacted by phone and/or email. This could delay disbursement of any financial aid awards.

Receiving all F’s for the Semester

Students who stop attending classes and do not officially withdraw from classes will receive a failing grade. In cases where students receive all F’s, and received Title IV funds, the student may owe all or a portion of the money back to the school and/or the Federal Government. Students who owe money back cannot register for classes, receive Title IV assistance, or obtain academic transcripts until the balance has been paid in full.

Degree Requirements

Degree Requirements

Academic Information

ENMU‑Roswell offers instruction in academic programs leading to an associate degree or a certificate. Each program includes a list of required courses and a recommended semester sequence (or “degree plan”) for taking the courses. To provide flexibility in meeting student needs, substitutions may be made for courses listed as requirements. Students must obtain approval for course substitutions from the appropriate program assistant vice president and the vice president for Academic Affairs.

While advisors and counselors assist students in planning their programs and scheduling courses, students are fully responsible for meeting the requirements of their academic or occupational programs. They should become familiar with the information contained in the college catalog, especially those policies which may affect their academic progress and eligibility for graduation or transfer. Students who are in doubt about the meaning of any regulations should seek immediate clarification from the appropriate college office. Please note that students are ultimately responsible for their decisions. In addition to the college catalog, other documents concerning ENMU‑Roswell’s rules and regulations are available to students upon request.

Catalog of Record

This catalog is a guide to the academic regulations and curricula of Eastern New Mexico University-Roswell. Each student is solely responsible for complying with all the regulations of the University and of the program he/she selects.

Students may graduate under the curricular requirements established in the catalog either for the year in which they were first enrolled at any ENMU campus or for a subsequent year of enrollment according to the following provisions:

  • Students must have been enrolled at ENMU-Roswell during the academic year covered by the catalog selected;
  • The degree is conferred within 5 years of the date of the catalog;
  • All program specific courses are governed by one catalog; and
  • The University can reasonably continue to offer the course of study.

The individual Divisions reserve the right to require students to repeat or prove their competence in the content of course work considered outdated by passing a challenge examination. Specific information on this process is outlined in the “Challenge Examinations in Academic Programs” section of this catalog.

A degree/certificate will not be issued, nor will a record of completion of a degree/certificate program be posted to students’ academic records, unless they have applied for graduation and have successfully completed the requirements for graduation.

NOTE: Because of the ongoing changes in accreditation and educational requirements in many health fields, this catalog applies to all students, entering or reentering Health Education programs or classes during the current academic school year.

Courses that include laboratory work specify the number of lab hours that are required weekly. For self‑paced courses or those that involve field experiences, credit hour value is not determined by the number of class meetings.

Full-Time Students

Students who register for 12 or more credit hours per semester are considered to be full‑time students. The normal semester load for full‑time students is 12 to 18 credit hours; however, some programs require more.

Part-Time Students

Students who register for fewer than 12 credit hours per semester are considered to be part‑time students.

Classification of Students

Students who have earned fewer than 29 credit hours of satisfactory academic work are classified as freshmen. Those who have accumulated 30 or more credit hours are classified as sophomores.

Student Load

A full-time course load is 12 through 18 credit hours during a regular semester, and 6 through 12 during an eight-week summer session. Students exceeding 18 hours in a regular semester or 12 hours in a summer session require approval by the vice president for Student Affairs, and will be assessed additional tuition and/or fee charges.

Challenge Examinations in Academic Programs

Regularly enrolled students at ENMU-Roswell have the option of passing a course in their degree plan by challenge examination without class attendance. A challenge examination may take the form of tests, projects, writing assignments, and other measures of course competency. A student who is already enrolled in a course will not be eligible to challenge the course if the semester is in progress. To arrange a challenge examination for credit, the student must obtain and complete the following:

  1. The Challenge Examination for Credit Request form from Admissions and Records confirming that the student has a cumulative GPA of 2.0,
  2. Agreement of the course instructor or faculty member to administer the examination or send the examination to the Testing Center to be proctored by one of the staff in that area.
  3. Signatures on the form include: (1) student, (2) registrar (3) faculty member and (4) assistant vice president.
  4. Proof of payment from the Business Office noted on the Request for Challenge Examination form; the $70.00 fee is nonrefundable.

Once the student has obtained the appropriate signatures on the form, and paid the nonrefundable fee, the form must be returned to the Office of Admissions and Records. Once the form is processed, a copy will be sent to the faculty member who has approved the challenge request.

After taking the examination, if the student receives a grade of C or higher, the course will appear on the transcript with the grade that the student has earned and be counted in the student’s grade point average for that semester. If the student receives a grade lower than a C, no entry will be made on the transcript, and the student will have the option of registering for the course at the current tuition rate.

Due to programing guidelines, students may not challenge courses in certain career-technical/health programs.

Challenge Examination for Advanced Placement

Regularly enrolled students at ENMU-Roswell are encouraged to take challenge examinations for advancement in foreign language courses. The student must arrange with the instructor to take the challenge examination prior to the regular semester, and the academic program stipulations apply.

Directed Studies Courses

Directed Studies courses allow the student: (1) to investigate in depth some subject matter that is not covered in the courses regularly offered by ENMU-Roswell or (2) to take a course in the catalog that has not been offered in the regular spring or fall semesters. To arrange a directed study course, the student must obtain and complete the following:

  1. Approved Directed Study Request form from the Admissions and Records Office showing that the student has a GPA of at least 3.0 in the area of study and has a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0.
  2. Agreement of a full-time faculty member to be his or her mentor/sponsor for the course. The mentor/sponsor works with the student during the academic year and administers the examination during the scheduled examination period at the end of the semester.

Concurrent Enrollment

Concurrent Enrollment

Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment Programs

ENMU-Roswell’s dual credit and concurrent enrollment programs provide an opportunity for high school students to take college level courses taught by ENMU-Roswell faculty at various sites or through distance education.

Dual credit courses accrue both high school and college credit and are open only to public schools, state charter schools, and other state-supported schools. Concurrent enrollment courses may be for college credit only, high school credit only, or both. Students must submit the correct forms to the ENMU-Roswell Director of Enrollment Management before the start of each semester. For more information, call (575) 624-7168.

Students who are enrolled in dual credit classes and/or concurrent enrollment classes are required to furnish a copy of their final high school transcript, with the graduation date posted, to ENMU-Roswell. Students who have not yet entered high school are not allowed to enroll in ENMU-Roswell courses without permission of the school district officials, the appropriate ENMU-Roswell assistant vice president, the vice president for Student Affairs, and the vice president for Academic Affairs. Only high school students enrolled in a public school, a charter school, or other state-supported schools, are eligible for dual credit. Please contact the high school counselor to determine eligibility for dual credit.

Concurrent Enrollment for Students in the Home School program

High school students enrolled in a home school program, who want to enroll concurrently at ENMU-Roswell, must provide appropriate documentation that they are registered with the state of New Mexico as a home school student before registering for classes. The person validating their home school work must sign as the student’s counselor.

Concurrent Enrollment for Students in a High School Equivalency Program

Students enrolled in a high school equivalency program who want to enroll concurrently at ENMU-Roswell must be certified by the Adult Education (AE) Director as having academic ability sufficient to perform at the level required for the courses in which they wish to enroll.

Concurrent Enrollment with Other ENMU Campuses

Students may enroll concurrently in lower-division courses at any ENMU campus without special approval. However, it is strongly recommended that degree-seeking students establish a degree plan in their field of study with the Portales Campus.

Clemency Policy

Clemency Policy

The ENMU-Roswell academic clemency policy allows qualified students to redeem their academic record.

Philosophy

Students who have attempted college work previously and were not successful in their effort and now wish to resume their college careers but are held back by poor academic records may, through the application of academic clemency, exclude from current work the poor academic record under certain conditions.

Criteria

To be considered for the academic clemency program, a student must have last attended ENMU-Roswell five or more years ago, be readmitted through normal channels, and complete at least 12 hours after returning with a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least 2.0 on those hours.

Procedure

Students who meet these criteria may apply for clemency in the Admissions and Records Office. No courses taken prior to the student’s return will be counted in the ENMU-Roswell GPA. Courses with a grade of “D” or better will be carried forward as earned credit only and can be used to meet degree requirements. Note:

  1. This policy pertains to the calculation of the GPA for progress toward degree completion and does not pertain to GPA calculated for professional certification and/or licensing.
  2. Students can apply for and benefit from this policy only once, and it is not reversible. Grades earned before clemency remain on the student’s record, and a statement at the time of clemency will explain the action taken.
  3. The student who has already graduated may not apply for clemency.

Student Withdrawal

When an officially enrolled student decides to cease attending any or all courses, the student is responsible for initiating the withdrawal action through the appropriate assistant vice president. Merely discontinuing class attendance does not constitute a drop or a withdrawal. To complete this process, the student must complete the following procedures:

  1. Students may initiate the withdrawal process by visiting the office of the assistant vice president of their unit. They must complete the personal information on the form, obtain the required faculty signatures, and return the completed form to Advising Services for final approvals. Students should complete the withdrawal process in person. If withdrawal cannot be done in person, see Number 2.
  2. Students may initiate the withdrawal process by email and submit their request to the office of the appropriate assistant vice president through their ENMU-Roswell email account. The email must include the student’s ID number, student‘s contact phone number, the course name and number, CRN, and the instructor’s name. The email will be forwarded to the appropriate instructor for approval. The instructor will respond within 72 hours. If unable to do so, or extenuating circumstances exist, the assistant vice president will have override authority to advance the withdrawal to Advising Services for final approvals. Withdrawals will be effective as of the date of the email.
  3. Students may initiate the withdrawal process through a signed fax to the appropriate assistant vice president. The faxed request must include the student’s ID number, the student’s contact phone number, the course name and number, CRN, and instructor‘s name. The request will be forwarded to the appropriate instructor. The instructor will respond within 72 hours. If unable to do so, or extenuating circumstances exist, the assistant vice president will have override authority to advance the withdrawal to Advising Services for final approvals. Withdrawals will be effective as of the date of the fax.
  4. The student is NOT OFFICIALLY withdrawn until the instructor, assistant vice president, and advisor have approved the withdrawal, and it is received in the Admissions and Records Office.
  5. Telephone requests for withdrawal will not be accepted, and a third party, other than a designated official of the University, may not request a student’s withdrawal without the expressed, written authorization of the student.

Administrative Withdrawal

Administrative withdrawal is for non-academic reasons only, (i.e., nonattendance, accident, illness, behavior issues; failure to pass a drug screen or successfully meet the requirements of a background check; or failure to meet other requirements of prospective clinical sites).

Administrative withdrawal may be initiated by instructors with approval from the vice president for Academic Affairs. The instructor must acknowledge and sign the withdrawal form and submit it to the assistant vice president’s office. Withdrawal is effective immediately. The assistant vice president’s office will submit the withdrawal form to the Admissions and Records Office. Students who are forced by emergency circumstances to leave the University without officially withdrawing should notify their class instructors or the respective assistant vice president in writing and request an administrative withdrawal. (See “I” incomplete eligibility).
