Filing Your Degree Application
Students are required to file an application for certificate or associate degree and pay the graduation fee for each degree sought. This fee ($10 for a certificate; $25 for an associate degree) must be paid before the end of the semester or session in which the candidate anticipates completing degree requirements. These fees may be paid at the DACC Cashiers Office in room 118. If degree requirements are not completed during the semester or session for which the student paid the fee, the student must reapply and pay any fees that may apply. Degree applications for the associate degree and certificate are available at the DACC’s Registration Area (Room 115). You can also apply for your degree on-line at https://www.nmsu.edu/~registra/degreeapp
