Late Starting Courses

Advance your academic goals quickly in an intensive, concentrated schedule that earns you more credits during a semester.

Add another class to your Fall schedule to fulfill financial aid or scholarship requirements.

Late Starting Courses are counted in the student's total credit hours for the Fall semester. They are offered between the last Friday of the term and the Sunday prior to the start of the next term. Check individual section meeting times for details. There are no additional tuition costs incurred for students whose full time status will be unchanged by the addition of Late Starting Courses. That is, their Fall semester course load equals at least 12 credit hours (without an additional Late Starting Course) and their total will not exceed 18 credit hours with the addition of Late Starting Course enrollment(s). Note: This does not include course fees — students will be responsible for any course fees charged by a Late Starting Course.

A selection of university core and upper division electives are offered through the following academic colleges: Arts and Sciences, College of Education, College of Fine Arts, School of Architecture and Planning, and Anderson School of Management. More than 50 courses are available with approximately 1,200 seats during the Winter break.

Locations & online courses

In addition to the classes offered on main campus, some branch campuses and UNM West also offer late-starting courses. A few online courses are also offered in the late-starting time frame. (Locations and online courses may be found in the intersession schedule when it is posted.)

Please note that you must drop a late-starting class before Winter Break to receive a full refund, regardless of class start-date.
