Central New Mexico Community College maintains that the general education component of each degree or certificate program is critical in preparing students to live in and contribute to a dynamic, complex and multicultural world. The CNM Governing Board is responsible for policies that govern all phases of the educational program within the college promises. The Central New Mexico Community College Department of Security has issued a specific set of guidelines for all students, faculty, staff and visitors to follow in the event that an active shooter or a similar threat is present on any CNM campus. Financial aid checks are given out on a set date each term and again every Friday thereafter. It is important to bring a CNM or other state-issued photo ID to pick up a Financial Aid check. Disbursement takes place at the Main, Montoya and Westside campuses only at the Cashier's office. If the majority of your credit hours take place at the Montoya campus or at the Westside campus, your check will be there. Otherwise, it will be at the Main Campus. At CNM, students can graduate with an Associate Degree or a Certificate of Completion. Students must apply for graduation to receive a certificate or degree from CNM.

CNM has a number of articulation agreements with many 4-year universities in the state. Many of the agreements offer a course-by-course guide to a specific degree. The CNM Alumni Association is a free volunteer organization of graduates and friends who want to maintain a relationship with the college.

All certificate and degree graduates are invited to join the Association. Members will receive benefits including volunteer and service learning opportunities, special alumni events, campus privileges, professional networking, communications and awards and recognition.

The Governing Board is an elected group of individuals, constituting a lawful political subdivision, who represent the population of the Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) District. The Board adopts and declares Policy Statements addressing the mission, vision, values and goals of the College. The policies provide a general operating climate for College employees, students and other citizens and guide decisions related to the attainment of desired educational objectives.

There are several reasons funds may be different than expected. For example,

 

·         Students are generally paid three (3) weeks after a short term class starts

·         Ineligible courses are not paid for

·         Tuition/fees and Bookstore charges are taken from the disbursement

·         Students are paid the full amount of Pell for 12 or more financial aid eligible courses; 9-11 credits = 3/4 of the full amount, 6-8 credits = half of the full amount. Actual amounts can be seen at the bottom of your class schedule
