NMHU and SFCC sign articulation agreement for SFCC Business and Accounting associate graduates to easily transfer into NMHU business bachelor’s degree programs

March 8, 2023

New Mexico Highlands University (NMHU) and Santa Fe Community College (SFCC) have signed an articulation agreement so SFCC students who complete either an Associate in Arts in Accounting or Business Administration can easily transfer to NMHU to pursue either a Bachelor of Business Administration or a Bachelor of Sciences in General Business.

Barry Hubbard, Ph.D., SFCC Dean of Trades, Advance Technologies and Sustainability & the School of Business, Professional Studies and Education said, “This articulation agreement further strengthens a long-standing relationship with NM Highlands University. By following these improved pathways, SFCC students will be able to transfer smoothly into one of NMHU’s Bachelor of Business Administration concentrations or their Bachelor of Sciences in General Business.”

D. Veena Parboteeah, Ph.D., NMHU Dean, School of Business, Media, and Technology said, “We are excited to strengthen our partnership through the articulation agreement, which will ensure a smooth transition for students transferring from SFCC to Highlands. By following this pathway, students will also be prepared to succeed in the programs offered by the Department of Business Administration at NMHU. With our presence at the Higher Education Center (HEC) in Santa Fe, students can get help, thanks to Mr. Robert Anaya and his team. We also plan advising sessions at the center to engage with students in Santa Fe and surrounding areas.”

The articulation agreement specifies what classes will be accepted to satisfy prerequisites. SFCC business and accounting students are strongly encouraged to work with an academic advisor to ensure that they are taking the relevant course work to attain their goals.

SFCC’s Accounting and Business programs offer classes online, so it’s convenient for people who are working to study for a degree at a time that’s most convenient for them.
