Please visit: to learn more about the spring courses in honors. If you have questions for a professor of a given course feel free to reach out to them via email or visit their virtual office hours.


Common Course Numbering

UHON121/122 has changed to HNRS1120. To register for Legacy courses, please search the schedule for HNRS instead of UHON. All other classes will keep the UHON prefix for the spring schedule.


Override Requests:  Overrides will only be required for skipping a level, taking 2 courses with the same number (repeatable), independent study/senior options (492, 493 etc), and UHON121/HNRS1120. Course prerequisites will work as they do for other courses at UNM and will not require an override if you have taken the prerequisite course (taken the course at the preceding level).

Skipping a level requires the permission of the instructor. Please have your instructor email me at to provide permission.

Independent Study Form

Independent study courses are approved by the Chair of the Curriculum Committee and must be submitted 1 week prior to the start of term.

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.

Students are responsible for checking their registration appointment date in LoboWeb. Please wait until you recieve the email indicating it is time to check. The updates generally take place one week prior to registration.
