Doña Ana Community College (DACC) Vice-President for Student Services Ike Ledesma today announced extended hours for the East Mesa and Espina Campuses so students can more easily register for fall classes.
From January 7 – January 29, 2020 several DACC offices will be open until 7 pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays for “Extended Hours.”
“This winter students can get advised, find financial assistance or address any issue to register for the spring academic semester. We kept offices open before the fall semester and it was very popular with students wanting to register and those who wanted more information.” Ledesma said. “We understand that people who work may need the option of registering later in the day.”
Offices that will remain open during the hours include admissions, academic advising, the cashier, financial aid, the information center and student accessibility services.
This spring there are several classes offered to address needs in the community. DACC is working closely with NMSU to offer several degrees for students who want to continue to pursue an associate degree and then transfer to NMSU for a bachelor degree.
“In fact, this year’s catalog features 44 associate degrees,” Ledesma said. “We have a major that is right for any student starting their career or wanting to return to school to improve their qualifications. For those wishing to enter the workforce faster, there are 55 certificates in a wide variety of majors.”
“Oftentimes, people may feel unsure about going to college,” Ledesma said. “We have supportive services that will help students overcome barriers and help them succeed in their academic career.”
The Gadsden Center, 1700 East Ohara Road, Anthony, NM and Sunland Park Center 3365 McNutt Road, Sunland Park, NM will also be open until 6 pm to help students from the southern part of Doña Ana County. The East Mesa Campus is located at 2800 Sonoma Ranch Blvd. and the Espina Campus is located at 3400 S. Espina St.
