Campus Medical Center:
The NMSU Health Center staff has been trained on LGBT issues and how to respectfully speak to transgender patients. However, due to turnover and human error, they still may make mistakes. The student health center is still improving in their knowledge and attitude toward the trans community.
Currently, there is no way to obtain hormones on campus. However, they are able to help you learn about self-injections if you already have a prescription for hormones.
For more information on medical resources in Las Cruces please refer to the “medical” page.
Preferred Name Changes:
Students may update their preferred name on canvas through myNMSU. This will update names on rosters and can be applied to student IDs and information systems. We are working on the kinks in extending this to the testing centers, dorm mail system and other places on campus.
If you have any issues, questions or places we need to visit about preferred name information please contact us via email or come into the LGBT+ Programs office in Garcia Annex Rm 146.
Official name changes (i.e. those with court documents) can be used to update name changes at the registrars office. The same supportive documentation can be used to update gender markers as name changes.
