Registration Guidelines

Adding, Changing and Declaring Majors: Students may change their major (program) at any time during the term in which they are enrolled. Students should formally declare the major from which they intend to graduate. To graduate from a CNM program, students must declare their major either at the time of admission, during their enrollment at CNM, or when completing an application for graduation. (see Graduation: General Requirements)

Adding Courses: Classes may be added according to the dates and deadlines listed in the Schedule of Classes.

Cancellation of Enrollment Before Term Begins: Students not able to attend CNM when planned but who have registered for classes must drop all classes through the online registration system in myCNM before the beginning of the term.

Course Load: see definition

Course Repetition Limit: see definition

Dropping Courses: Classes may be dropped according to the registration deadlines listed in the Schedule of Classes.

Classes dropped on or before the Last Day for Refund of that part of term/session do not appear on the student’s CNM transcript. After that time a withdrawal grade (W) will appear on the student’s record for classes dropped. Specific dates are listed in the Schedule of Classes.

A student should not assume he/she will be dropped from classes for nonattendance. A student who has not officially dropped a class will receive a final grade in the class. A student physically unable to drop a current class by the published deadline (Example: hospitalization) may submit a written appeal, along with required supporting documentation, to the school on which the class is offered requesting an exception to the drop deadline policy. Appeal forms are available in the Registration/Grades tab of myCNM.

Grade Options: Students must select a grade option (grade mode) when registering for class (see Grade Mode (Grade Options)). Deadlines and information regarding changing grading options are listed in the Schedule of Classes.
