CNM Identification Cards

If you are a student, faculty, or staff member, you must carry your CNM ID at all times when you are on campus. All CNM services require a CNM ID to conduct business.

Here are some examples of the CNM ID cards:

To get a student ID, you must be fully registered for classes. Bring your current or upcoming class schedule along with an acceptable government-issued ID. There is no charge for your first ID card. If you have an older CNM or TVI ID card, you can trade it in for a new one at no charge.

Acceptable Government-Issued IDs

You will need to bring a government-issued (federal or state) ID with your legal name, date of birth, and signature to obtain a CNM ID. Examples include:

  • State-issued driver’s license or ID card
  • Passport
  • INS Visa (“green card”)
  • Military ID
  • Tribal ID
  • Foreign government-issued ID

Replacement Cards

All replacement IDs for students who have taken CNM courses in the past year will cost $25.00. The replacement ID will cost $50.00 if an ID has a bus pass sticker on the ID.

To get your ID replaced you will need to pay for the replacement fee at the Cashiers Office and bring the receipt to the ID Office.

Guest IDs

You can get a guest ID at Main, Montoya, and Westside campuses.

A guest ID allows any community member 18 years or older to use CNM computers. In order to prevent unauthorized use and access to CNM computer networks and comply with the Communications Assistance for Law Enforcement Act (CALEA), all CNM guests are required to get a guest account.

Guest IDs include an ID card, username and password to access CNM computers.

Guest IDs are valid for the term that it was issued for. For example, a guest ID issued for Fall 2016 term provided on August 29, 2016 expires on December 10, 2016.
