We, the student and parent/guardian, agree for the above-named student to enroll in the Dual Credit Program offered in coordination with stated high school and
postsecondary institution. We understand the high school representative will authorize course selection for each term. We understand that all prerequisite requirements,
including assessment and course placement must be met.
We agree to abide by the guidelines in the Statewide Dual Credit Master Agreement, and high school and postsecondary policies and codes of conduct.
We will cooperate with both the high school and postsecondary institution in fulfilling student responsibilities. We understand that any courses registered for, or grades
earned, become a permanent part of the student’s high school and college record. At the end of each quarter and/or semester, we authorize the postsecondary institution to
send all grades to the postsecondary school, including those for courses that are not a part of this agreement.
We understand that it is the student’s responsibility to receive approval from the high school representative for permission to drop or withdraw from the course(s) listed above.
According to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) (20 U.S.C. § 1232g; 34 CFR Part 99), all rights of access to the student’s educational records transfer
from parent to student when the student is enrolled in a postsecondary institution. Accordingly, dual credit students still enrolled in high school have rights of access to their
postsecondary dual credit records. In order for the student to receive credit, transcripts of dual credit courses will be shared among the secondary and postsecondary
institutions the public education department, and the higher education department. All data submitted to secondary and postsecondary institutions or the NMHED will be used
and maintained in accordance with all federal and state statutes, regulations, and policies.
By signing below, I, the student, authorize the postsecondary institution listed above, to release all information concerning my academic records to my high school, the
NMPED, and the NMHED. I understand that information may be released orally, electronically, or on paper. I have the right to inspect any written records released pursuant
to this consent and understand that I may revoke this consent at any time.
We, the student and parent/guardian, certify that all the information furnished in this application is true to the best of our knowledge. We understand that any
misrepresentation of the facts may result in the immediate cancellation of the student application or registration.
