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!

The professors are fantastic! They take the time to really ensure that their subject matter is understood. They are caring and really excel at their craft!The TRIO program is available for those who qualify, with additional tutoring and support!
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.
