Applying as a high school student

 

GirlsDual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment is available to current high school students. If you plan to attend NMJC after graduating high school, this is not the option for you.

 

Dual Credit

Provides high school juniors and seniors who attend a public high school with whom NMJC has a Dual Credit agreement, the opportunity to take college courses. They will simultaneously earn both college credit and high school credit. Students need to speak with their high school counselor for Dual Credit information.

Concurrent Enrollment

Provides high school juniors and seniors who attend a private, public high school or are currently home-schooled students and at least 16 years of age, the opportunity to take college courses. Students seeking concurrent enrollment must speak with the Registrar's Office.

The student and parent must complete a Concurrent Consent Form. Be advised that college classes are designed for adults and may not be appropriate for some high school-aged students.

How Do I Sign Up for Dual Credit?
1. Apply to NMJC

Complete the Online Application and allow two (2) business days for processing from the date of submission online. (Please be sure to hit submit & then log off when finished).

2. Consult Your High School Counselor

Meet with your high school counselor to determine what course(s) would be appropriate for you to take at NMJC. Your high school counselor will initiate the proper paperwork for you to take classes. Your high school counselor will also initiate assessment testing.

Please note: Grades earned at New Mexico Junior College become part of your permanent NMJC transcript.

How Do I Sign Up for Concurrent Enrollment?
1. Apply to NMJC

Complete the Online Application and allow two (2) business days for processing from date of submission online. (Please be sure to hit submit & then log off when finished.)

If you have accessibility concerns, this form is available at NMJC Help Desk, or visit this webpage.

2. Meet with an NMJC Advisor and take the Assessment Tests

Meet with a NMJC advisor to review and discuss appropriate class options and degree / career goals.
Take the Next Generation Accuplacer placement test.

3. Complete Concurrent Consent Enrollment Form

After you have visited with an advisor, determine what classes you wish to take, you and your parent/guardian must sign the Concurrent Consent form.

Return the signed form to the Registrar’s Office for NMJC signatures and review. A current high school transcript must be turned in to the Registrar's Office with the Concurrent Form.

4. Attend Classes

Concurrent students are establishing a permanent college record and are responsible for knowing college deadlines and procedures.

4. Purchase Your textbooks

Concurrent students are responsible for their own books. You will need to visit NMJC's bookstore in the Ben Alexander Student Center, or use our online bookstore to purchase your textbooks.
