Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment

Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment is a program designed to provide high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to earn college credit while still enrolled in high school by taking University courses normally not offered at the high school.

Admission to Dual Credit/Concurrent Enrollment is in Non-Degree status and is not considered “Early Admission” to the University. Students desiring to continue in degree status after high school graduation must fulfill the admission requirements described in the current UNM Catalog.

Dual Credit Textbooks for APS High School Students

Library Services will provide APS high school students with the required textbook(s) for each class a student enrolls in at either UNM. We do not provide supplemental, suggested, or recommended textbooks or supplies. All of the dual credit textbooks are APS property and students must return the textbooks back to Library Services when they change, drop, or complete a dual credit class.
