Welcome to Spring 2020
Welcome to UNM Online is an overview of online education at the University of New Mexico.
Because online education is delivered across state lines, there are state and federal regulations in place to ensure students are protected and receive a quality education. For students pursuing a degree leading to licensure outside New Mexico, it is critical to verify relevant state authorizations.

There are two types of online course:
- An asynchronous online course has no, or a very limited number of, scheduled meetings.
- A synchronous online course has regularly scheduled meetings.
The Schedule of Online Courses features academic courses UNM offers online.
Each online course awarded the Golden Paw underwent a rigorous assessment along the Online Course Standards Rubric. UNM faculty conduct an evaluation to ensure every qualified course passes the rubric's highest level of quality.
While many courses are offered online, UNM also has degree programs fully and partially online.
