Tip 1: Check your CNM Email Regularly

  • It's important to check your CNM email regularly (we recommend daily) to ensure you don't miss any important communications.

Tip 2: Communicate With Your Instructors

  • Attend your instructor's office hours.
  • Email your instructor with questions.
  • Reach out to your instructors if you have any questions or concerns. Instructors love to hear from students!

Tip 3: Log Into Your Class Regularly and Submit Assignments On Time

  • Logging into your classes regularly is important. If you were taking online classes, this is considered part of your attendance and participation.
  • It is recommended you log into your classes daily to see any announcements your instructor has made.

Tip 4: Schedule Time for Studying 

  • Plan on studying at least three hours per week for every credit hour you were taking. If you were taking one class there's three credit hours, that's nine hours of studying!
  • Create a study schedule.
