International Admission Requirements

International Admission RequirementsAn international student is any individual attending DACC while present in the United States of America on a non-immigrant student visa.  In addition to the general policies of DACC/NMSU that apply to all students, some special policies applicable only to international students are necessitated by federal laws.  DACC refers all prospective international students to the NMSU International Student Services (ISS) Office for further information and to begin the application process.

The NMSU ISS Office is responsible for coordinating the application and admissions processes for all international applicants to DACC, overseeing international students’ maintaining their legal status as foreign students in the United States, and coordinating outreach programs which benefit our campus and local community. ISS specializes in aspects of these three basic missions.
