NMSU-A Dual Credit Program

 

Are you a New Mexico high school or home-schooled student? Are you planning on going to college? Are you interested in earning college credits before you finish high school? What if you could do all that without having to pay college tuition?

Dual Credit is a statewide program in which eligible students can receive both high school credits and college credits for taking approved college courses.

Talk to your high school guidance counselor to see if Dual Credit classes are a good fit for you.
