Important Tips

  1. TAXES/ PAYROLL: If you received payment from the university during your time in US, contact the payroll office to give them your new address before you leave so they can send you the appropriate tax documents at the end of the calendar year. Remember that even if you leave the country before tax reporting time (April 15), you are still required to complete US tax forms for your time in the US. You can look on the Internal Revenue Service website at www.irs.gov, contact GEO, or go to a US consulate abroad to obtain these forms. If you are a non-resident for tax purposes, the forms you complete may include: form 8843 and either form 1040NREZ or 1040NR if you earned money.

  3. UNM E-MAIL:  Your UNM email account is directly associated to your UNM NetID. When you no longer have an active role in the Banner system with NetID privileges, your NetID starts a 65-day deletion cycle. Your account will lock on the 8th day of the cycle.  The entire account will be deleted on the 65th day. 

  4. ALUMNI RELATIONS: Give Alumni Relations your new address. You may do this on-line at www.unmalumni.com. Alumni Relations can also inform you about alumni groups that exist in your home region so that you can stay in touch with the University of New Mexico Community.
