About Aggie Pathway

What is it?

The Aggie Pathway to the Baccalaureate Program is designed to provide the support you need as you transition from high school to college.  As an Aggie Pathway student, you will start at one of our four community college campuses, located in Alamogordo, Carlsbad, Dona Ana County or Grants.  You will receive extra personalized guidance to help you every step of the way as you work toward your bachelor’s degree.

Who’s it for?

Aggie Pathway serves students who do not immediately meet the admission requirements to NMSU’s Las Cruces campus, paving another path for them to a bachelor’s degree.

Priority admission to Aggie Pathway will be given to students meeting the following criteria:

  • At least a 2.75 high school GPA but missing one required course
  • At least a 2.5 high school GPA and up to 20 ACT

How does it work?

Once admitted to the program, you will enroll in courses at an NMSU community college.  Upon completion of 24 college-level credit hours with a minimum 2.5 GPA, you can pursue a bachelor’s degree at NMSU Las Cruces without submitting another application.
