Part-Time/Transfer/Returning Student Orientation

Welcome to the CNM Online Student Orientation!

The online orientation is only for students who are beginning college at CNM part-time (less than 12 credit hours), transferring to CNM from another college or university, or are returning to CNM after an extended absence.

In the online orientation, you will find information about all the resources available to CNM students and how to prepare for your first semester of classes.  

You must complete the full module to receive credit. The final page of the module will let you know that you have completed the module and can close out of the browser.

How long does it take?

The Part-Time/Transfer/Returning Student online orientation can be completed in about 35 minutes.

Once you log in, if you need to exit the module for any reason and return to it later, the module will remember where you left off.

Please select the appropriate module on the left menu to begin.


For best performance, we recommend you view the orientation in Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, or Safari.


If you have questions regarding the online orientation, please call (505) 224-3352, Monday-Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m.
