Why We are Different

Chartered as a community college more than five decades ago, we operate under the aegis of the University of New Mexico as Gallup's branch campus. Although our priority has always been to serve our community as a two-year college, our association with UNM has allowed us to be flexible and stretch as the need arrives. In addition to our two-year programs, we also have a few entities operating on our campus or under our leadership: Adult Education Center on the North Side of Gallup, Middle College High School, Community Education and the Center for Career and Technical Education (CCTE). All these programs help to meet the needs of our very diverse community.

UNM-Gallup offers open enrollment, with opportunities to obtain a certificate in a vocational program, or an associate's degree in either a vocational program or an academic discipline. Many of our students concentrate on obtaining their basics at UNMG's affordable tuition rates before they transfer to four-year institutions.

The college specializes in helping under-served students get the help they need to succeed in college. We offer several concentrated remedial programs that have shown great success in helping students make the transition to non-remedial course work.

It's never too late to go to college. Whether you're a recently graduated high school student, or someone in search of a new career, we can help. Call us at (505) 863-7500 and let us help you find what you're looking for.
