Primary Campus Priority Registration

Students are best served when they take classes on their primary campus. It is there that students have access to advisors and faculty who are most familiar with their degree programs. Other support services, such as financial aid and tutoring, are also best delivered from a student’s primary campus.

For that reason, students at all NMSU campuses are expected to take 100- and 200-level classes at their primary campus. Community College students can take courses on other campuses if the course is not offered or if there are no seats available in that course at their primary campus. For example, DACC classes in Library Science that are not offered on other campuses will be open to students system-wide. Students at NMSU-LC/Main campus can register for developmental courses on any campus (CCDE, CCDM, CCDR courses).

Exceptions may be authorized by the Vice President for Student Success, at the request of an academic advisor, when the purpose is:

  1. consistent with the intent that students take courses on their primary campus
  2. in support of student degree and certificate completion
