November 9, 2010 | | Leave a comment Eastern New Mexico University (ENMU) and the Dona Ana Community College (DACC) have signed an agreement to allow students to transfer apply up to 90 credits to a bachelor’s degree program, reports Portales News-Tribune. College officials from ENMU told the news source that the program that is most likely to benefit from this partnership is bachelor’s of occupational education. The fully online curriculum is designed for students who are teaching or wish to teach vocational classes in high school or college. The web-based courses will allow DACC students to take classes at home rather than traveling to the ENMU campus. “DACC is one of the best two-year institutions in the state, and we are very happy to have an agreement with them that will allow their students to complete a bachelor’s at ENMU,” Steven Gamble, president of ENMU, told the news source. Individuals who wish to gain acceptance into ENMU as a DACC student are required to achieve at least a C average while accumulating 90 credit hours. According to a 2008 report by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, professionals in this field can earn average annual salaries ranging between $39,460 and $59,470.
