Dona Ana Community College—NMSU 2+2 Pathway Programs

Dona Ana Community College—NMSU 2+2 Pathway Programs

NMSU and DACC, being part of one university system, have partnered to produce several DACC associate degrees that transfer seamlessly into specific Bachelor’s degrees at NMSU. We call this the Aggie Pathway Program because, with good planning, you can earn the Associates degree in two years and finish the Bachelor’s in another two years.  

The 2+2 Aggie Pathway Program offers phenomenal savings to our international students. According to 2016-2017 tuition rates, students would pay  $52,836.00 for a Bachelor’s degree (calculated on 8 semesters) through the 2+2 Pathway compared to $84,936.00 for a Bachelor’s degree completed entirely at NMSU’s Main Campus (calculated on 8 semesters).

With good planning, all of the credits earned in the DACC programs in the left-hand column will apply toward the NMSU bachelor’s degrees in the right-hand column.
