Things To Do Before Class
OBTAIN NMSU STUDENT ID CARD
Students are eligible to have a Student ID card and some school districts require it to pick up textbooks. The ID has a picture and NMSU ID number on it to identify the student at various campus offices. The card is used for checking out books at the library and access to computer labs or tutoring services.
The NMSU ID Card Services Office is located in Corbett Center 137, (575) 646-4835.

OBTAIN PARKING PERMIT
Parking in the paved lots on the DACC Central Campus requires a parking permit. Parking in any unpaved lot is free. Parking at the East Mesa, Gadsden, Sunland Park and White Sands campus is also free. To obtain a parking permit, students need to know their NMSU Student ID number. Parking permits are available in person at the DACC Cashier's Office, Central Campus Main Building, Room 118, (575) 527-7516, or through the NMSU Parking Department
CREATE My.NMSU.edu ACCOUNT
Once admitted as a dual credit student, one of the first steps is to create a my.nmsu.edu account, which includes creating an NMSU email address. Through this web account, students can conduct business with DACC/NMSU. They can:
- Send and receive email via an NMSU email address
- View the schedule of classes
- Check grades
- And much more!
To activate an account, simply go to my.nmsu.edu and carefully follow the instructions to create an account. A high school counselor or the DACC Dual Credit Office will be able to help complete this step.
