Transfer Admission Requirements

admission requirements

Prospective transfer students may be eligible for undergraduate studies with a cumulative GPA of at least a 2.00 and be eligible to return to the college or university last attended.  Students must submit official transcripts from all colleges and/or universities previously attended.  A student who conceals the fact that (s)he has attended another college or university and who has not had official transcripts submitted by each institution previously attended-whether or not credit was earned-will be subject to immediate suspension.  An academic credit evaluation will be mailed to you from the Doña Ana Community College Academic Advising Office, 575.528.7272.

Application Process

Follow these procedures when applying for admission to any Academic Program at Doña Ana Community College.

1.  Complete the undergraduate admission application ONLINE.  You will be directed to New Mexico State University’s application website.  Please create a PIN # and Password to gain access and be sure to choose “Doña Ana” in the section “Campus Where You Plan To Enroll.”  Submitting your online application is a one-time option and you will not be able to re-submit it for any future terms of enrollment.  If you prefer to download and print your application in a PDF Format, click HERE.

2.  Submit a $20 Nonrefundable Application Fee

3.  Request official High School or GED test scores and college transcripts from each educational institution attended.  All official transcripts must be mailed directly to DACC Office of Admissions by the records/registrar’s office of the issuing institution(s).  If your college/university is able to send official transcripts electronically, we will accept them through eSCRIP-SAFE as long as your school is a member SENDER.  DACC does not accept transcripts sent or carried in hand by applicants themselves or transmitted by fax.  High School transcripts must show GPA and Date of Graduation.  Online high school diplomas and their accreditations are subject to review and must meet regional institutional accreditation standards through ACE (American Council on Education).  DACC requires an English translation of all foreign-language transcripts.

If you have fewer than 30 college credits earned, you are considered a “transferring freshman.”
