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.
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:
- 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.
- Returning students on suspension are required to reapply for admission and submit an academic appeal prior to seeing an advisor.
- 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.

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.
