Welcome to the Summer Session
Summertime is the best time to get ahead on your degree.
Summer registration opens on April 15.
Summer break doesn't have to interfere with your degree plan
With another 3 credits towards your degree plan, you can:
- Reduce your course load for the coming Fall semester
- Tackle a challenging class without the stress of a full class schedule
- Complete a core requirement
- Working this summer? Online classes provide flexibility.
UNM Summer Session classes are only 8 weeks. You can achieve 3 credits in 4 weeks with Half-Term courses, or find an Intensive 2- or 3- week course experience. Combine courses to progress even further towards your degree!
To be considered for summer financial aid, please make sure you have a complete Financial Aid file, which includes 2018-19 FAFSA. Summer financial aid is based on the summer time enrollment (full time = 6 credit hours and half time = 3 credit hours). By submitting a request for summer aid, the Financial Aid Office can evaluate your summer eligibility based on enrollment level, availability of funds, cost of attendance and previously disbursed aid.
Summer Pell Grant
Pell Grant eligible students can receive up to 150% of their scheduled Pell award each year. This means, if you were a Pell eligible student in fall 2018 and/or spring 2019, you may qualify for a summer Pell grant.
You must be registered for the summer term before submitting Summer Request form to our office.
