Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Educational Support Credit (DANTES)

Prior to (or during) a student’s enrollment at NMSU, credits may be earned through the DANTES program. Earned DANTES credit will be treated as transfer credit without a grade, will count toward graduation, and may be used in fulfilling specific curriculum requirements. DANTES credit will not be granted if taken during the student’s last 30 credit hours unless waived by the dean of your college. Not all programs of study include electives, DANTES credit is not useful to these students.
