SPRING BREAK 2022 - NEWS UPDATE!



Good afternoon, NMSU Grants!

You might have noticed that the Grants Campus and the Las Cruces Campus/NMSU System have different Spring Breaks this year. This is due to Las Cruces aligning with the NMSU system calendar, and Grants Campus aligning with our local community/school district’s calendar.

The NMSU System’s Spring Break is March 7-11 and the Grants Campus’ Spring Break is March 21-25. As such, there will be no scheduled courses from the other NMSU System campuses the week of March 7-11, and the Grants campus will not have courses the week of March 21-25.

Please adhere to the schedule associated with your courses. If you are a student taking courses at more than one campus, you are responsible for following the academic calendar for both campuses.

If you have calendar related questions, please contact Student Services at 505-287-6678 or ssgrants@nmsu.edu.

Sincerely,

Patrick Clingman
