Late Starting Courses

Registration begins in early November.

To view schedule, go to the late-starting classes page here.

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

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

Late Starting Courses are counted in the student's total credit hours for the preceding semester. They are offered between the last Friday of the term and the Sunday prior to the start of the next term in the Fall and Spring semesters. 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 or Spring semester course load must equal at least 15 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 the academic department offering a Late Starting Course. In addition, there will be a program fee of $150 per student for late starting courses.  

Typically, a selection of General Education and upper division course electives are offered through the College of Arts and Sciences. This page will link to the course schedule when available.


In addition to the classes offered on main campus, some branch campuses and UNM West may also offer late-starting courses. A small selection of online courses may also be offered in the late-starting time frame.
