As our college moves into independence, there still seem to be some concerns about what this means. Dr. Andrew Nwanne recently asked for help clarifying some issues related to independence. As NMSU-Carlsbad begins transitioning to Southeast New Mexico College effective July 1, it is important that everyone know the following:
* NMSU Carlsbad (Southeast New Mexico College) is fully accredited and accreditation is independent from the university in Las Cruces.
* You will not lose credit when you complete or transfer to another institution. Additionally, general education courses are the same throughout the state because they have the same course number.
* The curriculum will remain the same and be expanded to include more programs to meet the needs of students, community, business and industry.
There’s a lot of work to do in terms of making this transition, but please let us or the college know if you have any questions or concerns.
