Students will celebrate a life-changing milestone when they don caps and gowns during CNM's annual GED Graduation Ceremony.

This event is a rare cap-and-gown ceremony for students who have earned their GED certificate, an accomplishment that opens up a new world of possibilities for many students who, for a variety of reasons, didn't graduate from a high school. Many of the GED graduates have overcome difficult situations to earn their certificates.
