Catalog Course List
The first digit in the course number indicates whether the course is a freshman (1xx) or sophomore (2xx) level course. The next two digits indicate the course sequence. The 3 cr. indicates that the course is a 3-credit course. The (2+4P) means that the class meets for two hours per week for recitation or lecture and also requires 4 hours per week of “practice” (laboratory, field work, or other activities). The suffix N denotes that the course credits will not apply to baccalaureate and specified associate degrees. The suffix G denotes that the course meets General Education common core requirements for transfer to other New Mexico institutions of higher education, as established by the New Mexico Higher Education Department. Note that some courses without a G also meet transfer requirements.
