New Student Orientation

Welcome to CNM! We're glad to have you. On your path to registering as a new student, you should plan to attend a New Student Orientation.

What to Expect

Our New Student Orientation was created with you in mind. During your three-hour orientation, you'll learn what you need to know to get a successful start at CNM, meet other new students, and 

  • Find out how to register for classes
  • Learn about the many academic programs we offer
  • Familiarize yourself with Student Services, such as CNM Connect.

Why attend Orientation? 

Attending an in-person orientation will help you get started on your college career and help you understand what to expect as a new student.

All incoming freshman who will be qualifying for CNM's Bridge to Success Scholarship are required to attend an in-person orientation. 

Sign up for an Orientation 

If you have never attended college, you are required to attend an in-person Orientation session. Sign up by clicking the links below, and clicking the yellow 'register' button.


If you are a returning CNM student after a period of not attending, you are eligible to view CNM's Online New Student Orientation. You may choose to attend an in-person Orientation instead.
