Founded in 1968 as a branch campus of the University of New Mexico

As the largest of the four UNM branch campuses, we serve approximately 2200 students. Located on the breathtaking Colorado Desert Plateau, UNM-Gallup is a minority-majority university and 94% of our students identify as multiethnic or a racial minority. We operate today as an institution where we are all different together. It is our differences that make us stronger and allow for strong collaborations across all academic disciplines.

UNM-Gallup is a comprehensive career technical and transfer institution that offers certificates in 16 disciplines and Associate’s degrees in 19 programs. Our college also offers a number of diverse programs designed to meet the needs of our population. Among them are:

  • Middle College High School – a charter high school located on the UNM-Gallup campus;
  • Center for Career and Technical Education – a program which draws students from local high schools to dually enroll in high school and college classes in a variety of career and technical education areas;
  • Adult Education Center – provides instruction in high school equivalency preparation, basic skills and English as a second language;
  • Workforce Development programs – provides professionally designed classes in response to industry and community needs;
  • Community Education – offers a wide variety of non-credit instructional classes;
  • Career Services
  • Veterans Resource Center
  • Center for Academic Learning (CAL)
