How to Read the Course Listings

Courses are titled in the following style:

ASTR 110G Introduction to Astronomy 4 cr. (3+3P)

  • Course number - (110 ) indicates the course is a freshman course.
  • Suffix (G) - indicates a New Mexico Common Core course.
  • Credits - The unit of university credit is the semester hour, which is the equivalent of one hour's recitation or a minimum of two hours of practice per week for one semester. The (3+3P) means that the class meets for 150 minutes per week for lecture and also requires 150 minutes per week of “laboratory” (practice or field work).

Course Number Designation:
100-199 – Freshman courses
200-299 – Sophomore courses

Additional Notes:

When the letter "N' is added as a suffix to the course number, the course credits are not applicable to certificates, associate, or bachelor degrees. The CCD courses are only offered on the Community College Campuses.

Consult with an Academic Advisor regarding courses that have different prefixed/course numbers but the same course titles as these classes are often considered duplications.

Students may not receive credit for a lower level course which is a prerequisite to a higher level course for which credit has been received or which is being taken for credit.
