State Policy / State/System Reports /

The New Mexico Dual Credit Program provides high school students the opportunity to enroll in college-level academic or career-technical courses offered by a public postsecondary educational institution or Tribal college and simultaneously earn credit toward high school graduation and a postsecondary credential. Students may not take remedial, developmental, or physical education courses as part of the Dual Credit Program. Dual credit supports P–20 education by maximizing students’ educational attainment, providing opportunities for success in the workforce, and better-ensuring students’ contributions to their local communities.
