New Course Numbers

Registration for Spring 2021 is upon us! Check the registration schedule by classification to find out when you can register.

You may have already noticed in the Spring schedule of classes that many course numbers have changed. This is a statewide change mandated by the New Mexico Higher Education Department. While it may seem like an inconvenience (Trust us... the struggle is real when it comes to retraining our brains, too!), there are actually many benefits to adapting to a unified numbering system, namely to improve transfer and articulation of courses between New Mexico's public and tribal higher education institutions. 1

 


What numbers are affected?

Currently, many 100 & 200 level courses have been assigned new 1000 & 2000 numbers.

There are a few subjects that have changed, as well. Most subjects are now 4 letters. Additionally, there are a few subjects that have changed more starkly. See below for a comprehensive list of the changes:
