Transitional Studies

Entering freshmen whose ACT/SAT scores or UNM Los Alamos placement test scores indicate a need for college preparatory course work, or entering freshmen with deficiencies in admission requirements, may be required to take Transitional Studies courses before entering their individual programs.

These courses include:

  • English 099: Developmental English
  • English 100: Writing Standard English
  • General Studies 193: Reading for College
  • Math 099: Pre-Algebra
  • Math 100: Introduction to Algebra

Advisors will help students determine in which courses they should enroll. General university credit will be granted for these skills courses, but credit will not be accepted towards UNM Los Alamos associate degree programs or towards UNM degree programs.
