Connect with Your Advisor
When you meet with an advisor after your New Student Orientation, you may meet with a general academic advisor or a division advisor, depending on your major choice. During your meeting you will discuss your academic plan, select and register for classes. Get to know your advisor and read all the materials they suggest.
Required Reading for New Students:
The DACC and NMSU Catalogs are the place to find degree requirements, course descriptions and college policies. Hold onto the print copy of the catalog you receive when you enter the college because the degree requirements are good for up to six years.
The DACC Schedule of Classes is posted online every semester and contain lots of critical dates and deadlines, instructions on registration, tuition and fee rates, the final exam schedule, campus maps and much more. Make sure that you can access the Schedule and reference this information often. Access the NMSU Course Schedule online!
