If you're experiencing financial hardship the State of New Mexico can help.

On May 3, in an effort to ease into on-campus operations safely, CNM will begin our Return to Campus initiative with a 25% capacity limit for students, staff, and faculty. As conditions continue to improve, we hope to increase capacity to 50% later in the summer.

Please note:

  • During the Summer 2021 term, most classes will continue to be offered online, but about 25% will take place on CNM campuses. This will allow CNM to help you progress in programs that require in-person instruction, leading to careers that are essential for our community.
  • You may make in-person appointments for access to libraries, computer labs, and tutoring at Main and Westside campuses.
  • Read about Summer 2021's Modes of Instruction when registering for classes. This will help you understand the various in-person and remote instructional methods CNM offers when selecting classes.
  • Please adhere to our COVID-19 Campus Safety Protocols when on campus.
  • Before coming to campus each day a Daily Health Self-Assessment is mandatory.
  • You're required to have a CNM General Parking Permit to park in any of CNM’s lots at all campuses through December 2021. If you already have a valid lot-specific permit, it can be used for any CNM lot during this time. General Permits cost $7.50 per term or $17.50 annually. Visit Parking Services for more information.
