Additional Information

AP or CLEP Credit

Except where noted (see "Alternative Credit Options" in the Admissions section in the UNM Catalog), students may apply AP or CLEP credit to General Education requirements.

Transfer and re-entering students

Transfer and re-entering students receive advisement in the College and Department to which they are admitted in order to establish an appropriate program which meets their needs and the aims of the General Education curriculum. Transfer students who have demonstrated completion of all of the requirements for General Education at another higher education institution in New Mexico will not be required to fulfill General Education requirements at UNM, unless they opt to do so. Transfer students who have not completed all of the requirements for General Education at another higher education institution in New Mexico will need to follow the University of New Mexico requirements for General Education listed here. The University recognizes that minor substitutions or exceptions, handled on a Department and College basis, may be necessary to accommodate specific student needs.

The three-credit hour U.S. and Global Diversity and Inclusion undergraduate degree requirement

The U.S. and Global Diversity and Inclusion undergraduate degree requirement is a University Requirement independent from General Education curriculum requirements and is fulfilled through completion of an approved University of New Mexico course. However, some courses in the General Education curriculum may also fulfill the U.S. and Global Diversity and Inclusion requirement. Completion of this University requirement is mandatory for all undergraduate students, including transfer students. For more information on specific courses visit the US Global Diversity & Inclusion Undergraduate Requirements page.
