New! FALL 2020 New Dual Credit Student Instructions!

NOTE: Deadline to submit applications was August 7, 2020.  No new applications will be accepted after this date.

Dear New Dual Credit High School Student,

Thank you for your interest in the DACC Dual Credit Program!  To qualify for the dual credit program in fall 2020, students only need to have a 2.0 or higher high school GPA. DACC will not be requiring students to take the Accuplacer this semester.  Below are the steps you will need to follow in order to be admitted and then registered for a dual credit course.

Steps for New Dual Credit Students: 

  1. Required Application for New Dual Credit Students: New dual credit students are required to fill out a DACC application and email it back to Amanda Vescovo at  Be sure to include an email address on the application (not your high school email).  This part of the process may take 1-2 weeks.
    1. Here is a brief YouTube link to review how to download, fill out, electronically sign, save, and email back the application:
    2. Please be aware that the DACC admissions office CANNOT accept pictures of the application
  2. NMSU Account Set-Up: The student will receive an email listed on the application with their Aggie ID number and instructions on how to set up a MyNMSU and Navigate accounts.
  3. Advising Appointments: AFTER both accounts are set up, check your NMSU email the following Monday morning for an invitation to make an advising appointment by phone.
  4. Student Packets/Paperwork: During your advising appointment, the academic advisor will provide you with PDF documents to electronically sign and return.
  5. Course Selection: Students will be advised and registered for 1 dual credit course in fall 2020. We are not sure if any courses will be offered in-person for fall 2020.
  6. Class Verification: Students should check their ‘Concise Student Schedule’ on MyNMSU accounts following the advising appointment to verify their course is correct.
  7. Online Orientation: Students will receive instructions on how to complete a Dual Credit Orientation online between May-August 2020.
  8. Extension: Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be extending our date to accept dual credit packets and schedule changes until July 31, 2020.
