These are the current affairs occurring at The University Advisement Center (UAC) this week
Spring 2013 Registration Advisement
All students are encouraged to schedule an advisement appointment at this time. Students should come prepared to advisement sessions with a schedule proposal that incorporates a minimum of 12 potential credit hours for the upcoming spring semester. Within this advisement session, advisement holds will be removed, in order for students to be prepared to register for Spring 2013 courses on their assigned registration date.
Completing The UNM Core Curriculum
The development of the UNM Core Curriculum was created to expand students’ educational experience through seven fundamental areas of study that covers a total of thirty-seven credit hours. The core is an exploratory stage in a student’s early academic career and can later be a useful tool to build a future career path. Ideally, students should primarily focus on core during their first year of college, in order to become more decisive about a major selection of their choice. Students should visit with their academic advisors to further discuss which areas of core have captured their primary interests.
College of Arts & Sciences Admission Changes
The largest degree granting college at UNM has changed its admission requirements. The College of Arts & Sciences (A&S) now requires students to have the following areas of the Core Curriculum completed before admission, which are Writing & Speaking, Mathematics, and Foreign language. Students will also need to complete specific department courses that stem from their degree program. In addition, students must have a minimum of 26 hours and a cumulative grade point average of a 2.0.
There has been an admission section added to the degree audit (Lobo Trax), in order to help students determine what remaining admission requirements they have according to their major selection. Students should also know that “In Progress” (IP) courses will not satisfy A&S admission eligibility requirements. All courses required for A&S admission must be completed with a traditional letter grade. For further information regarding the new A&S admission changes, please schedule an appointment with your academic advisor.
