LAS CRUCES, N.M. (AP) - New Mexico State University has shortened the amount of credits students need to receive a bachelor’s degree.

Students will now need 120 credits instead of 128.

University officials say the move, made during a meeting on Tuesday, better aligns NMSU with other institutions around the country.

The reduced requirements will mostly affect general elective courses, a news release states.

The University of New Mexico has also reduced the number of credits required from 128 to 120.
