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 and can be brief. We just need to see that the school you have selected offers classes that will work for your major/minor/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. Hightlight the upper division elective credits you have left to fulfill. We recommend listing at least 6 courses per semester, more if possible. This list might include electives and major/minor required courses. 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. As with UNM, course catalogs 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 set in September or February. Note: If you are having trouble locating all the courses you need, it is possible take up to six (6) online credits at UNM while studying abroad. If you are participating in an Exchange program (please ask your study abroad advisor to verify your program type), three (3) online UNM credits are covered in normal tuition pricing.
