**Some of our students are trying to add min-semester course, but have already registered for up to 18 credit hours. These 18 credit hours are considered “billed hours” in terms of cost of full time tuition. In reality, they are just adding and dropping classes, however, all transactions impact their financial account record.

Fall 2013 MCJ Comprehensive Exams Schedule
Research Methods: September 27 – 29
Theory: October 11 – 13
MCJ Students: If you have completed all 5 required core courses, and you are following the Focused Coursework option, you are eligible to take the comprehensive exams.
You must e-mail Dr. Carlos Posadas at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up for the exam that is distributed via CANVAS. If you have passed one part of the exam previously and need only to re-take one part-indicate that in your e-mail. Type ‘MCJ Comp Exam’ in the subject line. I will need you to include in that e-mail, your nmsu username (first half of your nmsu e-mail address), and your Banner ID number to properly register you.
You must be an active (enrolled in at least 1 credit) graduate student in order to take the exams. This means that if you have completed all of your coursework and therefore no longer taking classes, then you will need to work with Graduate Student Services to pay an exam fee in lieu of being registered for classes. If you have questions, contact Dr. Posadas via e-mail.
If you don’t have access to the Canvas site, you have not been signed up. Please contact Dr. Posadas asap.
