The content is challenging yet enough support and tutoring available to assist students. The instructors are there to guide and answer questions beyond classroom time to assist students in achieving goals.The Disability Resource Center is an excellent resource for those who have a need. The other fantastic program support is TRIO Student Support Services which assists undeserved populations to graduate from CNM to transfer to a university! I will transfer in the fall because of their assistance.

It's a nice school and has the perfect setup. There are so many resources to save money and you can even borrow the textbooks from the library. The teachers are amazing and the faculty and the school in general has a population of students from many different walks of life, which means that classes are scheduled in a very flexible manner, which is great! The classes are affordable, and free tutoring is available to all students. The people that work there really want you to succeed and have a high quality education.
I love going to school at CNM! I think the teachers and other staff are really helpful and create a great learning environment. I like that even though the classes are hard, professors try to make the learning experience as easy as possible for everyone. I also like how CNM has several campuses all across the city, making it easier if you live in different parts of the city.
