To apply to UNM as graduate student, you may wish to apply online (link to main UNM site)
Note: In addition to the UNM online application, you should also complete the CS pre-application on our Graduate Application Server.
Admissions procedures for Computer Science differs from those of other Departments. Follow the Computer-Science procedures for admission detailed below.
Priority for admission and consideration for financial aid will be given to applications received by January 15. International applications will be accepted until May 1, and domestic applications will be accepted until July 15.
Priority for admission and consideration for financial aid will be given to applications received by August 1. International applications will be accepted until August 1, and domestic applications will be accepted until November 15.
All materials, including completion of the Pre-admission Graduate Information Form, are required to be at the offices of the Department of Computer Science at that time.
All mailed application materials must be sent to the Computer Science Department.
First: Use either the form or the Graduate Application Server at the earliest opportunity. This is used by faculty to determine student eligibility for admission, and to match students with faculty of compatible research interests. It is in the applicant's best interest to complete this form as early as possible and prior to the January 15th deadline for Fall admission, when all application materials are due, (August 1st for spring admission).
Second: Complete the application packet. When downloading electronically you need to remember to send us two (2) copies of your application form. Please include all these things in your application packet to Computer Science:
Then: Mail your application form, registration form, application fee, transcripts, international student information, and letter of intent together, in a single package to:
Department of Computer Science

Albuquerque, New Mexico 87131-0001
Although each application is reviewed individually, it is expected that the applicant will have maintained a 3.0 or better average in the last two years (or the last 65 semester credit hours, if on a part-time basis) of study and in his or her major field. This is a graduate school requirement which can be waived in extenuating circumstances, particularly for returning students. Grades in technical disciplines, particularly mathematics, computer science, physics, and engineering, are considered especially important, as are language skills; also, recent grades are weighed more heavily than older ones. Industrial experience with favorable recommendations will be well received.
The department has established criteria for the GRE scores of New GRE 158 (old GRE 570) (verbal-native English speakers), and New GRE 152 (old GRE 670) (quantitative). These are not hard and fast cutoffs—a better than 3.0 academic average, outstanding references, or other ameliorating information can make up for scores below these cutoffs. Our GRE numbers: GRE Institution Code: 4845; GRE Departmental code: 0402
Foreign students will need to submit scores from the Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL). A score of 550 paper based, 213 computer based, or 79 internet-based or higher is required.
