Non-degree admissions make changes
Anyone who wants to take a few classes without formally pursuing a degree will now apply in Student Services for undergraduate level classes or Graduate Studies for graduate level classes. Students who wish to take undergraduate level courses should register with the admissions office in room 140 of the Student Services Center.
“This is a good way for students who want to explore UNM to sample classes or to find out whether they want to go for a formal degree,” says Peter White, dean of University College. In addition to admissions, University College will handle advisement and other activities.
Students interested in taking graduate level courses without pursuing a degree must now apply for admission at the Office of Graduate Studies, Special Initiative Office, Mitchell Hall, rooms 106 and 108.
Provost Brian Foster made the decision to close the satellite non-degree admissions office in the Continuing Education building. “We are an urban university and need a strong urban outreach. I think this will make sense for everyone.” There are about 2,500 students enrolled in the non-degree programs and Foster believes the numbers will increase.
