Additional Information

Dean’s List/Honor Roll

B.B.A. students may qualify for Dean’s List and/or Honor Roll each Fall and Spring semester. The Dean’s List honors the top 10% of full-time (12 credit hours or more) Anderson students according to their cumulative University of New Mexico grade point average. The Honor Roll honors the top 15% of full-time (12 credit hours or more) Anderson students according to their semester grade point average.

Pass/Fail (CR/NC) Option

Coursework in the following areas cannot be taken on a pass/fail (CR/NC) basis either at the University of New Mexico or another institution: pre-admission coursework, management core courses, upper-division Humanities requirement and concentration classes. Students should refer to the Grade Options entry of the Student Services Information section of this Catalog for further information.

Enrollment Preference

First preference for enrollment in all upper-division Management courses is given to students who have been admitted to the Anderson School.

Students not in Anderson are accepted on a space available basis provided they satisfy all prerequisites. Students must have a transcript on file with the Undergraduate Advisement Center each semester that they take a restricted course. Students may take up to 9 credit hours of 300-level management classes prior to their admission to the Anderson School of Management. Certain exceptions for individuals possessing a Bachelor’s degree and enrolled in Non-Degree status may be made for accounting courses only.

The Anderson School reserves the right to disenroll from a class any student who lacks proper prerequisites or who is enrolled in more than one section of the same course.


It is the firm policy of the Anderson School that course prerequisites must be observed. Management courses taken out of sequence may not be used to fulfill degree requirements regardless of the grades earned in such courses. The Anderson School reserves the right to disenroll from a class any student who lacks proper prerequisites.

The University of New Mexico Probation and Dismissal

See the regulations concerning academic probation and dismissal shown in the Student Services Information section of this Catalog.

Internal Probation and Dismissal

Students with a cumulative grade point average of less than a 2.00 are placed on internal Anderson School and University of New Mexico probation. Students placed on probation may be dismissed from the Anderson School if they fail to improve their academic performance in the following semester.

Scholastic Regulations

It is emphasized that students are solely responsible for complying with all regulations of the University, their respective colleges and the departments from which they take courses as well as for fulfilling all degree requirements. Therefore, students are advised to familiarize themselves with the academic regulations of the University.


Advanced Placement and CLEP Credit
The Anderson School accepts general or subject CLEP credit and AP credit provided appropriate scores have been achieved.

Transfer Policies

Transfer from Other Accredited Institutions
Students planning to complete their first two years of study at a junior college or at a four-year college other than the University of New Mexico should take only those courses that are offered as freshman or sophomore level courses at the University of New Mexico.

Transferring students must meet normal requirements for admission to this University as well as admission requirements of the Anderson School.

Transfer of credit is a two-part process. (1) The Office of Admissions and Outreach Services prepares a credit evaluation statement as soon as possible after admission status has been determined. This statement contains a listing of course work generally acceptable to the University. (2) Each college or school then determines if and how this transferable work may be used to meet individual degree requirements. Determination of the use of transferable work is made at the time of admission to the Anderson School. Evaluations or opinions offered prior to admission are unofficial and nonbinding.

Students desiring to transfer credit for any upper-division Anderson School course must receive prior approval from a faculty member possessing expertise in the area. Forms for such approval are available at the Advisement Center at the Anderson School. Students requesting credit from institutions outside of the United States should be prepared to provide information about the number of classroom hours per course and the quality of the institution.

A minimum of 24 credit hours must be taken in residence at Anderson. At least fifty percent (50%) of the management core and fifty percent (50%) of the concentration classes must be taken at Anderson unless the student obtains a written waiver from the Department Chair. Individual departments may establish additional residency requirements. The Anderson School does not accept credit from educational programs of noncollegiate organizations.

Special Information for Those Transferring from Two Year or Branch Colleges

Students transferring from accredited junior, community or branch colleges should note that transfer credit is not granted for courses that are offered at the upper-division level at the University of New Mexico unless specifically articulated. Lower-division credit is determined in the manner mentioned above.

The Five-Year Rule

The Anderson School faculty believes that managerial skills and knowledge change frequently. Courses taken more than five years ago may become outdated. Undergraduate students are normally expected to complete their studies at Anderson within five years of admission. Generally, a student continuously enrolled in the Anderson School or who is granted a formal leave of absence due to health or family emergencies is not required to repeat course work that becomes outdated. However, students who interrupt their studies at the University of New Mexico for one full year are not considered to be continuously enrolled and may be required to repeat management course work taken over five years ago. Students approaching the five-year deadline should see an Anderson advisor and prepare a formal plan for completion of their studies.
