Q:

Do I have to take the prerequisite?

A:

In most cases, if you have equivalent experience to the prerequisite class, you do not need to take the prerequisite. Otherwise, it is important to take the prerequisite to be adequately prepared for the class. If you are working towards a master certificate, check with the Program Supervisor if you have questions about your required curriculum or prerequisites.


Q:

I missed a class. Can I make it up?

A:

If you must miss a class due to illness or emergency and would like to make it up, contact ceregistration@unm.edu or (505) 277-0077, option 1 within two weeks of your missed class.


Q:

Can I customize a certificate?

A:

If you have previous experience or you have specific career goals, you can customize your certificate with approval from the Program Supervisor. Make an appointment to review your previous coursework, experience, work samples and/or portfolio and to determine the best path to meet your goals.


Q:

If I work toward a certificate, will my credits from another school transfer?

A:

Because our programs are non-credit, we cannot accept credits from other schools, but we will not ask you to repeat a class on a topic you already know./p>


Q:

Are the classes offered online?

A:

We offer many topics through our online partners, Ed2Go and UGotClass. The online classes are not exact equivalents to the onsite face-to-face classes and may not qualify for certificate requirements. View our online classes.


Q:

Do you offer financial aid?

A:

Because we are a non-credit division, we do not qualify for academic financial aid such as the Pell Grant, FAFSA or Stafford loans. For more information, visit our Loans and Financial Aid page.


Q:

Do you have any discounts?

A:

Yes. Our most popular discount is ten percent off with the purchase of three or more classes at one time. Check with the Registration office at 505-277-0077, option 1 for complete details on how to qualify for current discounts.


Q:

How many classes are considered full time?

A:

It depends on the program and the funding source. Third party vendors may have their own criteria for full time status for non-credit classes. Check with the Program Supervisor for details on full-time status.


Q:

I’m a Mac user. Do you have any Mac classes?

A:

Yes. We offer a variety of classes for the Mac Operating System. We also have dual platform labs using both Mac and Windows operating systems for many of the Digital Arts classes and custom training.
