Transferring from CNM
Because not all CNM courses are designed to transfer to other colleges and universities, students planning to transfer from CNM to a two- or four-year college or university should meet with an academic advisor. Advisors can assist students in choosing which CNM classes will best meet their educational plans.
Planning for effective transfer with maximum efficiency is ultimately the student’s responsibility. Responsible transfer planning includes early and regular consultation with the intended degree-granting institution to assure that all pre-transfer coursework will meet the requirements of the desired degree.
- Review Transfer Agreements between CNM and other colleges.
- Research your college of choice.
- Request and provide official transcripts from CNM and other colleges attended to your transfer institution.
- Meet with an academic advisor from transfer institution.
- Visit the New Mexico Higher Education Department for additional inquires.
When should I start?
- As early as possible. It is important to prepare for your transfer early to ensure a smooth transition.
Be aware of any deadlines that may apply to transfer students (i.e. admission, registration, etc.).
How should I begin?
- Meet with a Academic Advisor. An advisor can assist you in identifying pre-major and general education courses that can be completed as part of a transfer degree at CNM.
Students may walk-in or make an appointment.
- Participate in transfer activities. Investigate academic programs at colleges by attending transfer workshops, visiting information tables, or attending transfer fairs.
Contact Academic Advisement & Job Connection Services for information regarding transfer events.
- Provide Official Transcripts. Official transcripts must be reviewed and evaluated by the transfer school.
Meet with an advisor from each college that you plan to attend. If official transcripts have not been provided to the schools, be prepared to provided unofficial transcripts during your visit.
