Student & Graduate Reviews

2.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2015

We definitely need more career support and networking for our graduate students.
2.75 out of 5.0
Degree: Chemical Engineering
Graduation Year: 2014

My main concern about the grad program is tuition fee. I heard from many other university students that the doctorate students need not to pay the tuition fee, but that's not the case here.

Degree: Creative Writing
Graduation Year: 2016

Faculty provide challenging course work that challenges students and are available when students have questions. Classes are small and the everyone is friendly and supportive
3.67 out of 5.0
Degree: Civil Engineering
Graduation Year: 2018

Studying Civil Engineering at NMSU is the most rewarding experience because one can not find any where as cheap as this school and at the same time with highest quality of education. The faculty is so friendly and it feels like home. Though the city is kind of isolated from the rest of the world, the place is a home to various fun activities.
4.33 out of 5.0
Degree: Agriculture
Graduation Year: 2016

I feel the pros of my graduate program was the helpfulness of the admission office in answering questions pertaining to the application process. I was able to call and talk to someone who was knowledgable and very friendly. My advisor has also been very helpful in acquiring a TA position. He also advised me on which classes to enroll in and safe places to live off campus. Every person, faculty and administrative, has been very helpful in acquainting me with NMSU. The cons of my graduate program is that scholarship information is not as readily available to everyone. I found applying for scholarships to be difficult.

There could be more faculty support for graduate students. Having more networking opportunities as well as scholarship outlets.
4.0 out of 5.0
Degree: Business Administration
Graduation Year: 2015

There are many positives in reaching any academic goal. The negatives might be attached to managing your time effectively
3.25 out of 5.0
Degree: Social Work
Graduation Year: 2015

The pros of graduate school are being able to advance in a career. You are also given an opportunity to network more. The graduate program is intensified, so there is more of an opportunity to learn hands on. The only con of graduate school is financial aid. I had a very hard time finding programs that gave money to graduate students versus undergraduates.
3.58 out of 5.0
Degree: Curriculum & Instruction
Graduation Year: 2016

Pros--academic rigor, affordability, and campus safety. One major con is the career support. If you don't already have a job going into a graduate program in education, this program does little to nothing to assist you with advancing in your career.
3.92 out of 5.0
Degree: Special Education
Graduation Year: 2015

It's great to have access to a variety of on-line offerings. When you need to go to campus, the NMSU main campus is beautiful and accessible.
