Central New Mexico Community College Reviews
CNM is a really great school for transitioning high school students! Classes are the size of a typical high school class, ranging from about 25-40 people with one teacher. The main campus on University and Coal has a beautiful and large campus with plenty of curriculum, ranging from microbiology to yoga and pilates. Alongside with this, CNM offers intersession classes in order to bypass lengthy courses, giving you only a few weeks to finish a class in what would have taken months. Although it is not the traditional college experience for freshmen, if you are focused on your curriculum it is ideal because there are no distractions. CNM offers an array of services, with plenty of scholarships on their website and access to free tutors in the library. It is a great, inexpensive transition to college and an easy way to get transferable credits to a university such as University of New Mexico. I highly suggest enrolling here for incoming college students!
I have been out of school for ten years and was unsure and nervous about registering for college. I didn't know if I would have everything I would need or have the necessary skills to even be placed in college courses. CNM has made the entire process so effortless, and they have been kind and courteous continuously as I approach them with more and more questions. I am extremely grateful!
I had a wonderful experience at CNM. I was not interested in going there at first. The Community College part has a stigma attached. But it was a very positive environment. The instructors are experts in their fields. They were willing to help you succeed. I needed extra help with math and I received it. I only had two terrible teachers in my three plus years at CNM! One teacher was prejudiced against married students. On the first day of class she singled out the non feminist group for punishment. I graduated with honors. It was a very good education for the price and I would recommend it to everyone!
