Know a student looking to transfer to HU for a great  education?


College students can get all their questions answered about transferring to New Mexico Highlands at a new virtual information series called Transfer Tuesdays.

“Transfer Tuesdays are a chance for you to learn about the 50-plus academic programs at Highlands, the scholarship opportunities for transfer students, our affordable tuition rates, what there is to do on campus, and next steps if you want to apply,” said Kristen Olds, Highlands transfer admissions counselor.

Transfer Tuesdays are the first Tuesday of every month and started in March. The next ones are scheduled for May 7 and June 4 from 6 to 7 p.m. mountain daylight time.

“The Transfer Tuesdays series will be streamed through a video conferencing software called Zoom. Joining is simple. You just click on the ‘here’ link and you’ll join the conversation,” Olds said.


“We want to share helpful information and let students know how transfer-friendly Highlands is,” Olds said.

To find out more about Transfer Tuesdays, contact Olds at 505-224-3192 or

NMHU Career Services is focusing on better preparing our students for job interviews and professionalism.

With the high cost of college expenses, most students cannot afford a professional outfit to wear to an interview or potential job, so we are starting a Career Clothing Closet to provide a professional outfit to students, at no charge to them. We can only meet these goals with the help of community members like yourself.

We are seeking donations of pre-used clothing items that students can use to accomplish a better impression at their interview or job.

Your contributions are greatly appreciated! We can only hope that you will support our mission and help us implement our program and initiatives.

You can drop off your contributions to NMHU Career Services in the Felix Martinez Building, Suite 230, by mail to Box 9000 Las Vegas, NM 87701 or call (505)454-3048 for pick-up.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at (505)454-3048 or through email
