G&E Courses Are Open to Everyone
Registration is open to all adults (eighteen years and older) regardless of educational background. In some cases, classes are open to younger persons; this exception is noted in the particular course description. In all but a few courses, there are no examinations, transcripts, credits or grades, although certificates are issued upon request. Growth & Enrichment classes are held in Albuquerque and we offer several classes on the Westside. For more information, call (505) 277-6320.
Note: UNM Continuing Education is a self-sustaining department. All courses have set minimums for enrollment and decisions on whether or not the course will run are made 2-3 days prior to the start date of each class. Please do not wait until the last minute to register!
