Coursework Planning Draft
While you’re working on your UNM study abroad application, you will need to fill out the coursework planning draft so you have an idea of what classes you might want to take while abroad at your host school. This shouldn't take too long. You just need to see that the school you have selected offers classes that are relevant to your area(s)/program of study. These do not have to be solidified until the next phase in the application process, so please don't stress this too much.
Here's what we recommend:
Make a list of courses you have left to take here at UNM including required and electives. Highlight the upper division elective credits you have left to fulfill. In general, electives are easier to fulfill abroad than major/minor required courses, but not always. This list will make the next step in the process less stressful.
- Check to make sure at least some of your required courses and upper division elective credits can be fulfilled at the host university you are interested in. Ask yourself, does this university offer courses in [insert college or department where credits are needed]?
In the next step (Course Selection), we'll ask you to look at the course catalog for your host university and compare what you need with what you will actually take there to be sure your courses transfer back as desired. At foreign institutions, course catalogs or class schedules are not typically released until a month or two prior to the start of the semester so don't expect to have a solid schedule ready far in advance.
Note: You can choose to take online classes at UNM, but you must still maintain minimum enrollment requirements of the host institution, which is typically equivalent to full-time study in that country. You will also be responsible for any additional UNM tuition charges for online courses.
