New Mexico

Currently, Learn Everywhere legislation has not been introduced in New Mexico. However, this page provides students and families with information about available options for earning credit for out-of-classroom learning. While Learn Everywhere allows for program providers to be approved to offer credit-bearing learning opportunities, for the programs listed below, it is the student’s responsibility to submit an application and complete the program requirements.

Academic Credit for Out-of-Classroom Learning

The Public Education Department develops and publishes a graduation manual for each graduation class (starting with 2022) that establishes pathways for demonstrations of competency, alternative assessments, and competency-based  alternatives. Students may demonstrate competency in core content areas (mathematics, reading, writing, science, and social studies) in accordance with the eligibility requirements set forth in the Department’s rules.

Academic Credit for Community Service

School districts must offer student service learning as an elective credit.
