New Mexico State University Carlsbad began the process of transitioning to an independent community college with its own governing body.  

The transition to become Southeast New Mexico College started on July 1 after Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham signed House Bill 212 during the 2021 regular legislative session earlier this year. HB 212 created an avenue for the college to be managed locally according to an update provided during an open house on July 15.

All students graduating before then will still receive an NMSU diploma. Nwanne said the college will keep all its current accreditation and programs but hopes to expand them with the community’s help.
