Transfer admission requirements

  • A 2.0 or above cumulative GPA in your college courses.
  • Must be eligible to return to your last college or university.
  • Application for admission and official college transcripts or e-transcripts mailed directly from each college attended.

If you have fewer than 30 credits, you must meet the First Time Freshmen admission requirements and submit your official high school transcripts or GED results and official ACT or SAT scores.

Transitioning from an NMSU community college

If you are a current student enrolled at one of NMSU’s community college campuses (NMSU-Alamogordo, NMSU-Carlsbad, Doña Ana Community College, or NMSU-Grants) and would like to transition to the NMSU-Las Cruces campus, see our NMSU Community College Transition page.

Transfer guides

Course equivalency tables* for commonly transferred courses have been developed for many area colleges and universities. These documents shows course equivalencies only, and do not reflect any difference in credit hours between institutions. While these courses transfer to NMSU, specific degree requirements may differ. Please contact the academic department for specific degree requirements.

*NMSU reserves the right to modify these course equivalencies based on curriculum changes and program requirements.
