Graduate applicants will be notified immediately when the application is received. After an initial review by International Admissions, applicants will be notified again via email as to what materials are still missing or insufficient in the application. It is the applicant's responsibility to follow-up with missing materials.
Once the application is complete with the Office of International Admissions, the graduate department will be able to complete a review and make an admission decision. You will not be contacted again by International Admissions until the department has made this decision. Graduate department admission decisions vary in timeline. If admitted, the applicant will receive an email from the Office of International Admissions. In this email, the applicant will be asked to confirm his/her attendance at UNM and to supply official transcripts/degree certificates or diplomas from all post-secondary institutions attended and any missing financial documents. Refused applicants will receive an email directly from the graduate department.
Students who are accepted and have submitted official academic documents as well as required financial documents will receive an admission letter, a welcome letter, an I-20, and other materials via mail or express shipping. Students coming to UNM in F1 student status directly from another US school will receive a transfer form. Please read the instructions carefully and send the form to the Office of International Admissions. Students who are admitted should check the information on our incoming degree student page for arrival and other useful information.
