Registration for the summer and fall semesters at UNM-Los Alamos (UNM-LA) is now open. Early registration is encouraged. Registering prior to the beginning of the semester allows students to secure positions in high demand classes, as well as providing more flexibility in course selection and scheduling.
UNM-LA offers traditional face-to-face classes and also online and hybrid classes (a combination of face-to-face and online) to help meet the various scheduling needs and learning style preferences of students.
Summer classes begin on June 3, and fall classes begin on August 19. Prior to the summer semester, UNM-LA is offering a three-credit-hour intersession class, Intro to Communications, CJ 101, which will meet online May 12 – May 31. In addition to classes that meet for the full semester, UNM-LA offers short-term classes that meet for only part of the semester.

For students seeking a degree or training for a career, UNM-LA offers 18 Associate Degrees and eight Certificate Programs. Certificates in Emergency Medical Services (EMS), Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) and Personal Care Attendant (PCA) may be completed in one semester. These programs prepare students for certification testing for the State of New Mexico to work in fields that have a very high employment potential. Students interested in pursuing a degree or certificate at UNM-LA should schedule an appointment with an academic advisor prior to registering for classes.
UNM-LA, a branch campus for The University of New Mexico, has an open admissions policy. UNM-LA student profiles range from high school students and traditional degree-seeking young adults to working adults, veterans, and life-long learners.
