If you are an undergraduate, degree-seeking student who previously attended DACC/NMSU (includes Alamogordo, Carlsbad & Grants) but have not been enrolled for one or two consecutive (Fall or Spring) semesters, then you are eligible for "Quick Re-entry" to DACC. You do not need to submit a new application for admission, nor an application fee. You may contact or stop by the Academic Advising office, 575.528.7272, DACC Central Campus (3400 S. Espina St.), Main Bldg., DAMA #116, for advising and registration. Double check your eligibility to register for classes at MyNMSU so that there are no holds that will prevent you from registering.
NOTE: You must request official transcript(s) from each educational institution(s) you attended during your absence. All official transcripts must be mailed directly to DACC Office of Admissions by the records/registrar's office of the issuing institution(s). If your college/university is able to send official transcripts electronically, we will accept them through eSCRIP-SAFE as long as your school is a member SENDER. DACC does not accept transcripts sent or carried in hand by applicants themselves or transmitted by fax.
Former DACC and NMSU (includes Alamogordo, Carlsbad & Grants campuses) students who have been out of school for more than 12 months before re-entering are required to complete another application for readmission. A student who has attended other educational institutions during an absence from DACC/NMSU must have official transcripts sent directly to the DACC Admissions Office by each institution and must be eligible to return to that college or university last attended. Transcripts must be received prior to the date of registration. Admission status at the time of readmission will normally be determined by previous DACC/NMSU academic standing. However, academic performance at other institutions attended during the applicant's absence from DACC/NMSU will be taken into consideration in determining the student's academic readmission status.
Follow these procedures when applying for readmission to any Academic Program at Doña Ana Community College.
