The graphics below give an overview of the benefits of our program and the participant timeline. Our typical student member will apply to the program in the spring of their sophomore year, begin the program the fall of their junior year and continue participating until graduation. Emphasis on the word typical. Many of our alumni were beyond their sophomore year when they applied because they had an extended graduation timeline. Others were only in their first year at UNM but had enough credits to classify as a sophomore or junior. Feel free to contact us if you have questions.
