Things To Do Before Class

Image of ...student ID


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.


Students should check with their high school counselor regarding the process and date to     pick up their textbooks.

Take an ID and class schedule.  Class and book locations are listed below:

Classes held at DACC Central Campus and Workforce Development Center

  Pick up books at the DACC Bookstore at the Central Campus located in the Classroom Building, Room 170, (575) 527-7692; open M-F 8:00 am-5:00 pm.


Classes held at DACC East Mesa Campus

  Pick up books at East Mesa Campus; open M-F 8:00 am-5:00 pm.



  Students are required to return textbooks during finals week to the same bookstore.

Once admitted as a dual credit student, one of the first steps is to create a 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 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.
