AISB Student Testimonial

“The AISB Program provided a foundation to become a successful student at UNM. Not only was I able to get a jumpstart on my program’s curriculum, I developed essential skills like time management, organizational planning, great study habits, and most importantly, self-confidence. The staff strives to make this an exceptional experience for the students. That extra support system makes a big difference.”
