Admissions - Shape the Future

NMSU Online is for students intending to earn a degree or credential either 100% online or via one of our hybrid or ITV programs.

New Mexico (In-State) students seeking a credential or degree offered
by one of the NMSU community colleges will apply to that NMSU community college.

New Mexico students seeking a Bachelor’s, Master’s, Graduate Certificate, or Doctorate offered by NMSU Online will apply to NMSU Online and be a student of the Las Cruces campus.

All Out-of-state students intending to complete their degree 100% online or via one or our hybrid or ITV programs will apply to NMSU Online and be students of the Las Cruces campus.
The NMSU Online admissions requirements are the same as for on-campus students.

The admissions requirements depend on the campus, degree level and program. Every NMSU community college has a catalog with Admissions information, as follows: Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Dona Ana and Grants.

The Undergraduate Catalog Admissions section has essential information like admission requirements and more information for different types of undergraduate students.

The Graduate School Catalog has useful information for Admissions, International Students, Transfer of Credits and more.
