UNM West Transfer Program

Become a Lobo at UNM West!

UNM West welcomes students pursuing degrees in the following disciplines:

  • Business Administration
  • Nursing
  • Liberal Arts/ Integrated Studies
  • Elementary Education/ Special Education Dual License
  • Emergency Medical Services
  • Sociology
  • Psychology
  • Criminology
  • Communication

Many of the transfer agreements in the former "2+2 Transfer Program" between UNM and CNM have expired. Several transfer agreements between UNM and CNM are in the process of revision. The current programs available to students are in Biology and Engineering. Although these, and other programs, are currently not available at UNM West, students have the option of taking some of the required core courses that are part of these degrees at our campus. For CNM students interested in transferring to UNM West, academic advisors at CNM (Westside and Rio Rancho Campuses) and UNM West work closely together to ensure a seamless transition from CNM to UNM in these degrees. Students enrolled at UNM West and/or CNM also have the option of taking courses at both institutions concurrently in order to receive full-time financial aid under a consortium agreement. Contact a CNM or UNM West Academic Advisor for further transfer information. In addition, UNM and UNM West representatives are available at CNM Westside and Rio Rancho campuses (information tables, transfer workshops, transfer fairs, etc.) with transfer information. Look on the UNM West homepage, under "Events" for visit dates.
