FAQ about NM Lottery Scholarship at UNM (updated)

What is the admissions process for UNM for a student who has been homeschooled?
The student would need to send in a homeschool transcript showing their grades and courses through their 11th grade year.  We review the transcripts the same way we review transcripts from other high schools so they have to meet the unit requirements found here on our Admissions page: UNM Admissions

Are homeschool students eligible for bridge and lottery?
The students would need to turn in their official NM GED scores to be eligible for the bridge and lottery.

Do you have a document with guidelines specifically for homeschoolers? If yes, would you be so kind to provide me with this information?
We don’t have a handout that we give to homeschool students.

How does the transcript process work for homeschooled students?
The student or parent can bring in their homeschool transcript to our Admissions Office or One Stop location on Main Campus.  The transcript needs to show what classes they have completed while in their homeschool program and what grades they have earned.

Thank you very much. Good Day!

The ERC in Albuquerque usually has a workshop to help with filling out forms FAFSA and admission applications on the first Friday in November.

*Attention high school seniors and parents: Members of the TRIO program will be on site at the ERC this Friday afternoon, 1-4pm. They will have their computers and waivers and be able to assist students and parents in filling out college admissions applications and the FAFSA.
If your student is planning to apply to a college that has a TRIO program, they will be able to provide a waiver to waive the admissions application fee. If your student is applying to UNM, they have other incentives they are able to offer/waive.
Stop by the ERC, between 1-4pm Friday November 4th, to ask all of your college prep questions, and/or fill out your college applications and financial aid forms. (Bring copies of parents’ 2015 taxes for FAFSA).*
