The "Short Term Participant Packet provided to students
Note: Conexiones apologizes abjectly for the ever growing parcel of forms people are having to fill out and the seeming difficulties that students are encountering as they register, apply for financial aid, and get themselves vetted and certified as ready to participate in study abroad. That being said, you will need to fill out the various forms UNM requires including the "Short Term Participant Packet" below - do not, however, bother "creating an online account" suggested on page one. The application process is over. So what you need to do is to get the various forms filled in and return them to Dr. Thomas via his mailbox at the UHP office. Or you can complete them and send a scan or photo via e-mail to Dr Thomas
