UNM Transfer Information

UNM does not have a guaranteed admissions program. Transfer students are required to have 24 transferable credit hours with a cumulative transfer GPA of a 2.0 GPA or higher. If fewer than 24 transferable hours, UNM requests an official high school transcript with graduation date and official ACT or SAT scores.

Things you need to do to attend The University of New Mexico:

  • Attend a UNM Transfer Orientation, (505) 277-3361
  • Create a Net ID for myUNM which you will need for registration after you are admitted.
  • Read the UNM catalog. You will find important information there.
  • Take placement exams or turn in official transcripts or official ACT or SAT scores.
  • Look at your eProgress Report. This is obtainable once you've set up your myUNM account. This report shows all the credit hours you have in your major.
