NMSU Community College Transfers are students from the NMSU community college campuses at Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Dona Ana or Grants who transfer to the main campus in Las Cruces.


If you are a current student enrolled at one of the community college campuses and would like to transfer to the main campus, you should complete a Change of Campus Form and submit it to the Undergraduate Admissions Office.  You may submit the completed form by fax at: 575-646-6330 or email: admissions@nmsu.edu or walk into the Undergraduate Admissions Office located in the Educational Services Building.

If you are a continuing student and were admitted to one of the community college campuses first but have not been enrolled there for more than one (1) year, you must submit an Undergraduate Application for ‘readmission’ to Main campus.

Every request will be reviewed on an individual basis, change is not automatic! The Undergraduate Admissions Office will verify if you are eligible for admission to Las Cruces main campus. When admitted you must meet with an academic advisor for your major before you will be allowed to register for classes.

Helpful Hints to consider before transferring to main campus

  • Have completed CCDE 110N and/or are eligible to enroll in ENGL 111
  • Have completed CCDM 114N and/or are eligible to enroll in MATH 120/MATH 210G
