Academic Planning

The NMJC counselors can assist students in selecting courses needed for their particular degree plan. The Counseling Office houses college catalogues, admission applications and transfer guides for many regional 4-year institutions. Counselors are on hand to ensure all students are taking courses with transferability potential. If you intend to transfer to a 4-year college or university upon completion of your associate degree from NMJC, visit with a counselor today!

Degree Plans

You may view NMJC degree plans by going to the majors listed under Academic Degrees and Programs. For assistance with degree plans for other colleges and universities, please visit with an NMJC counselor. Also, many plans for other colleges and programs are available immediately below under Transfer Curriculum Guides.

Transfer Curriculum Guides - work in progress

The plans below are guidelines to help you choose classes at NMJC for transferring into your intended major at another college. These plans are based on articulation information provided by the other colleges. However, please be aware that it is in your best interest to check directly with the college in which you are interested to verify degree requirements and transferability of classes.

Transfer Equivalencies

If you would like to see course-by-course equivalencies between NMJC and five universities (Eastern New Mexico University, New Mexico State University, Texas Tech University, the University of New Mexico, and West Texas A&M University), you may view the Transfer Equivalency Table (PDF Format). However, please keep in mind that although many courses transfer, the key issue is whether a transferable course will apply to a particular degree.

Articulation Agreements

Copies of those specific agreements are posted here as additional information for students who may wish to transfer to these particular institutions. Any students who have questions about these agreements or how transfer credits are determined are encouraged to contact academic advisors at their destination university to obtain the most up-to-date, relevant information.
