Welcome to the Dual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment Program

Dual Credit and Concurrent Enrollment Program

The Dual Credit Program is a collaborative partnership between Luna Community College (LCC) and New Mexico high schools, private schools, and home schools to deliver college-level courses to students in Northeastern New Mexico. Our program waives tuition and registration fees for students within our district and high schools provide textbooks for their students. Students are responsible for other course fees and supplies.

The LCC Dual Credit Program is designed for high school freshmen, sophomores, juniors and seniors who qualify and may be eligible to earn college credit while they are still in high school. Dual Credit refers to courses taught to high school students for which students receive both high school credit and college credit. Our program serves school districts from the Northeastern sector of the state to include:

  • Cimarron HIgh School
  • Maxwell High School
  • Mora High School
  • Pecos High School
  • Robertson High School
  • Santa Rosa High School
  • Springer High School
  • Wagon Mound High School
  • West Las Vegas High School

Dual Credit students may receive Career and Technical Education designed by high school and college instructors working together to provide a coordinated sequence of instruction. Students are able to receive college credit through articulation agreements between high schools and LCC technical programs, which include subjects such as Automotive Technology, Collision Repair, Barbering, Building Technology, Cosmetology, Culinary Arts, Electrical Wiring, and Welding. In addition, the program provides access to academic courses such as English, Math, History, and Social Sciences, that deliver simultaneous credit toward high school graduation and a postsecondary degree or certificate.

Research studies on dual credit participation have shown that dual credit enrollment contributes to improved academic performance.
