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 went back to college after 51 years last year and Central New Mexico Community College has been the best support system I could have ever asked for! They have helped me with everything; academics, all my classes, tutoring, financial aid, scholarships, and the horribleness of all of this coronavirus scare! I cannot sing their praises high enough and my plan is to go on to the University of New Mexico and get my Master's in Psychology and become a child counselor! Thank you very much for your consideration! Joanne Pils
The online experience is great! With Covid-19 being here, it's great that i don't even have to leave home to be able to access my class material and assignments. The professors are really flexible with you if you're needing help or have trouble with anything.
