Join an FLC if:
Yes! All LCs earn 6 credit hours. Check with your Academic Advisor to determine which LC courses earn credit towards University Core Curriculum requirements, or may serve as free electives in your academic program.
Preview the themes and identify those you like. Your Academic Advisor will assist you. Registration for LCs is on a first-come basis. Students must register for both classes in an LC. When you register, you must enter the CRNs for BOTH classes in the same session. LC classes do not permit wait lists for enrollment.
Although it is not required, students in Learning Communities at UNM have higher GPAs, better retention, complete more college credits by their fifth semester, and many get a chance to interact with faculty in their field of study.
You will take two courses in the LC with a group of 24 students. There will be no other students in your LC classes. Each LC is unique and developed by the instructors. Not all LC classes are offered every semester.
