Compliance and Regulations

Under federal law, UNM must be authorized by each state in which it offers distance education. This includes both online education and experiential placements, such as internships and clinical rotations. To meet the requirement, UNM joined the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA).

Schedule of Online Courses

The schedule displays the current semester’s online course offerings, plus the three most recent previous semesters. It includes course information details faculty supply.

Course Information

The Schedule of Online Courses features section-specific course information faculty provide. This is both a student benefit and a requirement for UNM's membership to the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (SARA). In partnership with UNM Online, faculty teaching online use a Course Information Form to publish their details to the schedule.

Scheduling an Online Course

UNM Online facilitates scheduling online courses. Academic units prepare the scheduling forms and submit them to UNM Online for pre-approval.

Student Outreach: Emails

UNM Online connects with students through two email campaigns.

  • Welcome Email. Following the university’s part-of-term dates, the Welcome Email is distributed about two weeks before courses begin. It offers links to student success and wellness resources.
  • Midcourse Email. A few weeks before midterms, a Midcourse Email is distributed. Here the focus is on exam prep with links to tutoring, as well as to wellness support and career services.

Student Outreach: Surveys

UNM Online administers a Welcome Survey and a Midcourse Survey to students enrolled online. Invitations are distributed to their preferred email addresses, as indicated by UNM records.


The UNM Online staff is ready to answer questions about the university's online education ecosystem. Phone support is available weekdays during regular business hours. Within a day, email inquiries are addressed. During periods of heavy seasonal traffic, responses are provided within 2 business days.

At the UNM Online website, a chat bot is available for 24/7 inquiries. Should there be questions the chat bot cannot answer, within one to two business days, a UNM Online staff member will respond by email.
