Dear Pecos High School Students and parents:


Pecos High School Juniors and Seniors who plan on taking Dual Credit courses at Luna Community College (LCC) in Las Vegas, NM or Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) in Santa Fe, NM, please make sure that you have applied online at the college’s website BEFORE the upcoming semester. Upon applying to the college, students should email Ms. Espinoza AS SOON AS POSSIBLE with their acceptance and schedule a time for further advisement.

 In order to be eligible for Dual Credit courses, you must be in good academic standing and take the Accuplacer exam for English and Math courses in order to be placed into those classes; students who have previously taken the Accuplacer and passed, do not need to retake the exam. Elective courses do not require Accuplacer scores but may be contingent on English and Math courses. Ms. Espinoza will schedule onsite testing through LCC and SFCC throughout the academic year. Student’s may schedule their own Accuplacer testing dates/times upon being admitted to the college of choice. Upon receiving Accuplacer scores; please inform Ms. Espinoza.

Please do not hesitate to contact Ms. Espinoza with any questions regarding Dual Credit!

Thank you,

Ms. Karla Espinoza
