If your career requires you to move too often to complete your degree; you want to complete your degree, but your schedule conflicts with classroom attendance; or you’re place-bound, you might want to consider distance education.
You need to:
- Have substantially completed the prerequisite freshman and sophomore coursework.
- Be highly motivated to succeed in this non-traditional educational environment.
Distance ed courses are taught by qualified, full-time NMSU faculty who provide instruction through the Internet using a combination of distance ed technologies, including web-based interactive tools such as Discussion Boards, Email, Chat, Quiz, and customized interfaces.
The program is not equivalent to a “write-away” degree.
- You need daily access to the Internet for class and to communicate frequently with your instructor and other team/class members.
- Many distance ed courses are time intensive and require extensive writing.
Minimum computer requirements:
- Windows 98 Microsoft.
- PC or Mac: Internet Explorer, Netscape or AOL.
- Experience with the Internet and email-based communication.
Admission to NMSU. For information about tuition, textbooks, and tutorials visit the NMSU’s Distance Ed website.
- Have you been admitted or readmitted to NMSU? Apply for admission online through NMSU’s Admissions Office.
- Send official transcripts for all institutions attended to the Admissions Office.
- Have you substantially completed lower division requirements? If so, it is possible to concurrently enroll in lower division courses at a junior or community college in your area and in upper division courses at NMSU.
- Once lower division courses are completed, you will take upper division business core courses, courses in your major and two upper division general education courses called Viewing a Wider World (VWW) courses.
