That can be completed in two or three semesters. Then students can complete the general education courses like English, Sciences, etc. to complete the Associate's degree in year two. Courses from this degree will transfer to a completely online Bachelor of Information and Communication Technology degree from the NMSU-Las Cruces Campus. That degree can be completed in 2 additional years. Recently, NMSU-LC has added an online Master's Degree as well.
