Priority Registration

Priority Registration is one of the unique benefits granted to Honors students. The UNM Registrars' Office determines the dates when all students attending the University can sign up for classes. Generally, transfer students register first, followed by graduate students, then seniors, juniors, sophomores, and, finally, freshmen. The grade levels are determined by accumulated credit hours at the University. With Priority Registration, Honors students can register on the same day as graduate students. Essentially, Honors students can get a "first-pick" of courses and thereby coordinate their busy school, work, and family schedules.  In order to receive Priority Registration, Honors students must be current with their Honors advising and in good standing with the Honors College.  Please email  or call 505-277-421 for more information.

Preview Night

Preview Night is an opportunity to meet the Honors instructors and hear about the courses they will be offering for the upcoming semester. Please note that Preview Night is for students who want to take Honors classes during the upcoming semester. Students are NOT required to attend; however, those who do will get their Override Cards entered before Priority Registration and have first preference to Honors classes.


Override for Honors Courses

Honors College students must obtain “departmental permission” to add an Honors course to their schedule. Registration permission will be granted for the students who have filled out an Override Card and are in good standing with the Honors College. The Override Cards will be available at Preview Night and at the Honors College Main Office after Preview Night.
