Important Information for Non-Degree Students
For those without a bachelor degree: Credits earned in Non-Degree status are recorded on a UNM permanent record and may be applied to an undergraduate plan of study if the courses meet specific degree requirements. Non-Degree students applying for undergraduate degree status must follow admission procedures and provide all items/credentials necessary. There is a 30 credit hour limit in Non-Degree status if you do not have a baccalaureate degree. Undergraduate colleges at UNM will not accept in a degree program more than 30 UNM hours earned while in Non-Degree status, nor is a college obligated to accept any hours that do not fulfill college degree requirements. Non-Degree students without a baccalaureate degree may not enroll in 500-600 level courses.
For those with a bachelor degree: There is no earned hours limit for students with a baccalaureate degree. In some cases, graduate credit course work earned while in Non-Degree may apply to a graduate degree – contact the specific department for details.
