UNM West offers

—Joseph Moreno, UNM West

UNM West is excited to announce that dual-credit, core and pre-requisite courses are now available at its campus starting in the fall of 2013. High school students can now take dual credit courses live at UNM West for high school and college credit. In addition, beginning freshman students/high school graduates can begin their educational journeys at UNM West. These courses are also available for current UNM students interested in taking courses closer to home. Further, because of our smaller class sizes and convenient location, students who are interested in returning to school can benefit from these courses.

In addition, we are still specializing in education (elementary/ special education dual licensure), business administration, liberal arts, and arts & sciences programs (psychology, criminology, sociology, american studies, communication, and journalism). Starting this fall, the Emergency Medical Services Academy will begin offering EMT courses at UNM West. In addition, we anticipate nursing and dental hygiene expanding to our campus in the near future as well. We continue to work with CNM on transfer/ degree program completion between institutions, so that students can take courses concurrently at both schools, or begin at CNM with a transfer to UNM West for degree completion.

We invite you to visit our campus in the Rio Rancho City Center. Visit our website at or like us on Facebook for more information.
