About Fast-Track

Our Fast-Track Programs are designed for busy professionals seeking professional advancement. If you think you’re too busy with work, family or other obligations, sign up for a Fast-Track Program and kickstart your future.

Each program is offered in seven-week blocks, two blocks per term, and one seven-to-twelve week summer block. All classes are offered in the evenings or on weekends.

The Fast-Track format was designed by full-time faculty who work as a team to integrate and teach the curriculum using a competency-based education approach. Competency-based education is a learning model that transitions away from the restraints of seat time and creates flexibility by allowing students to progress as soon as they demonstrate mastery of academic content.

The Fast-Track program is eligible for Financial Aid and Scholarships. Fill out a Free Application for Student Aid (FAFSA) and contact a CNM Financial Aid Advisor or refer to myScholarship Application.
