Graduation Process & Deadlines

CNM Spring 2014 Graduation Ceremony will be held at Tingley Coliseum Expo, NM on Saturday, May 3, 2014 starting promptly at 12:00 p.m.

Graduates who wish to walk in their graduation ceremony will need to submit a graduation application by 5:00pm on Friday, March 28, 2014. Below, please find the steps to become eligible to walk (participate) in the actual CNM Graduation Ceremony:

Step 1

To review CNM’s general graduation requirements, log on to myCNM, and click on the “Students” tab at the top of the page. In the “Graduation and Change/Update Your Major” channel on the right of the page, click on “Your Guide to Graduation” to access the latest information on the graduation application process. To apply to graduate online, click the link for the “Online Certificate and Degree Evaluation” that is located below the “Graduation Guide” link. Once you complete the evaluation, you will be allowed to continue to the online graduation application.

If a graduate misses the deadline (Step 1) to participate in their Graduation Ceremony, they will still need to submit their graduation application by following the steps above.  Once that is submitted, the graduate will also submit a Graduation Ceremony Appeal Form to the Office of the Dean of Students for review.  The form is located on the Dean of Students web page by clicking here and is only available beginning at 5:00pm on Friday, March 28, 2014 and ending at 5:00pm on Friday, April 11, 2014.

Step 2
