Admissions Office

The admissions office provides information about NMCC to prospective students and assists students throughout the admission process. We also serve those students who wish to apply for a second degree or continue their studies after graduation. The office is also responsible for the evaluation and granting of credit earned at other institutions for students transferring to NMCC.
It is the policy of the college not to discriminate on the basis of sex, creed, color, race, age, national origin, marital status or disability in its educational programs, activities or employment practices.
If you have any questions about the admissions process or attending NMCC, please call 768-2785 or send e-mail to

Programs of Study

At NMCC, more than 30 programs of study are designed to enable you to enter the work force with technically-current skills and to prepare you for lifelong learning and upward mobility. Ninety percent of our graduates are employed within six months of their graduation in Real jobs or are continuing their education for a bachelor's degree. Our associate's degree will allow you to enter your chosen job market with confidence or to continue on to a baccalaureate degree

Admission Procedures

The following procedures constitute the admissions process:

1. An NMCC application form must be submitted to the admissions office, accompanied by a non-refundable $20.00 application fee for a paper application or $15.00 for an online application.
2. A final, official high school transcript for all years attended must also be submitted to the admissions office. Current high school seniors must include grades for the ranking periods completed at the time of their application to NMCC.
3. GED test scores must be submitted to the admissions office by those who are not high school graduates.
4. College transcripts must be submitted to the admissions office by applicants who have attended other colleges or postsecondary schools.
5. Placement testing, individual interviews and campus tours are required, in most cases prior to admissions notification.
6. Admission decisions are made as quickly as possible once an individual candidate's file is complete.
7. Accepted applicants are required to make a $100 deposit within thirty days of their acceptance notification. Students wishing on-campus housing are required to submit an additional $100 deposit to reserve space in the residential complex.

Admission Policies

Completion of a four-year high school program or a state high school equivalency certificate is required for admission to the associate degree, diploma and certificate programs offered at NMCC. A rolling admission policy affords candidates the opportunity to apply and be considered for acceptance throughout the year, but early application (9-10 months prior to the beginning of a given school year) is recommended because of competition and enrollment capacities established for each program. Some programs are subject to a competitive admission process. All programs are offered to women and men. Students are encouraged to enroll in programs considered nontraditional for their sex. Qualified handicapped students are also encouraged to apply and are provided appropriate support services. See the requirements and recommendations matrix at the end of this section.
