Bachelor & Graduate Programs offer students throughout New Mexico and beyond the opportunity to achieve a UNM degree without leaving their community. Many degree programs may be completed entirely online.
Courses are offered in the classroom or by Interactive Television (ITV) at Statewide Education Centers, online, or by correspondence. Student success is supported by advisement provided at our Education Centers at select community colleges and UNM’s own branch campuses.
With built-in flexibility for the student’s choice of best time and place to learn, both UNM Online and Independent Study courses offer convenience and greater access to a UNM degree for students at Albuquerque main campus as well as other locations. Core and upper division classes are developed in collaboration with and taught by UNM faculty.
Online students enjoy interaction with their instructors and fellow students through online chats, discussion boards, email, and other tools featured in Blackboard Learn.

Osher is a membership learning community for ages 50 and up. Quality classes and camps for children and teenagers are offered by the Youth Program. The Early Childhood Services Center helps New Mexico communities to address early childhood care and education.
UNM Extended Learning provides alternative means to higher educational opportunities. This can be particularly important to non-traditional students, as well as meeting the greater expectations of traditional students in the fast, nimble pace of a mobile world.
For many adult learners, the key question is, “Can I really do this?” Success stories show that it can be done, and the positive difference Extended Learning makes in the lives of students, their families, and their communities.
