Student Success Stories

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.

Real students, real stories
