Online Programs offer students options

An alternative and convenient way to earn college credentials at Doña Ana Community College (DACC) is through online programs.

Online programs allow students to “attend” and participate in online classes as their schedule allows. It is great for those who work, have family or have other commitments that make face-to-face attendance difficult or even impossible.

DACC offers students the ability to start at the community college and finish at New Mexico State University (NMSU) through the Aggie Pathway program which requires class attendance at a DACC campus or learning center. Now, students can also choose the option of online programs and then transfer to NMSU to earn their bachelor degree. For those who are already working, certificates offer the opportunity to gain additional skills and credentials.

“Our online programs are high quality, affordable and provide students five options for an associate degree,” said Susan Wood, Interim Vice President for Academic Affairs. “If someone is already working, a certificate can bolster their workplace skills. DACC offers four certificates fully online to help meet workforce needs.”

Currently DACC offers associate degrees fully online in:

  • Arts
  • Criminal Justice*
  • Pre-Business*
  • Public Health*
  • Science
