How to register
Follow these 8 easy steps:
- Prior to the start of a college semester, visit your high school or homeschool counselor to look at the current UNM-LA semester schedule (found on our website). Determine UNM-LA courses that would fit into your schedule and discuss your eligibility for concurrent enrollment. (Note: students may take courses in the fall, spring, and/or summer semester)
- At the start of the semester, get a copy of the concurrent enrollment application (eg. The same application is used for both dual credit and concurrent enrollment) from the UNM-Los Alamos web site, your high school counselor, or a UNM-LA Advisor in Building #2 at UNM-LA.
- Complete the application. Notice that you will need signatures from your parents and possibly from your high school counselor and principal.
- Submit your high school / homeschool transcript with the application.
- Return the completed application to the Registrar’s office in Building #2 at UNM Los Alamos.
- Costs: All costs are covered by the student. This includes tuition costs, books costs, and all course-specific fees.
- Books: The student purchases textbooks for concurrent enrollment courses. Visit the UNMLA online bookstore for more info.
- You will be awarded UNM college credit at the end of the semester in which you took the course.
