Get Started with an Appointment 

At CNM Advisement, we recognize the many different expectations and requirements for each educational pathway. For this reason, we recommend scheduling appointments. When you schedule an appointment, we make sure that you are placed with an advisor who has specialized knowledge of your major and degree or certificate program.  

Appointment Hours

Schedule an in-person or virtual appointment with a CNM Advisor during the following hours: 

  • Monday - Thursday: 8 a.m. - 7 p.m.
    • Limited appointments and walk-in times are available from 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.

Tips for the Best Advisement Experience

  • Have your CNM ID number ready to go. If you still need an ID number, please apply to CNM
  • Bring previous college transcripts, ACT/SAT scores, or Accuplacer scores. 
  • Determine the degree or certificate program you are interested in pursuing.
  • Explore financial aid information and determine if you will need financial assistance. 
  • Compile a list of questions you may have for your Advisor. For example:
    • Are any of my required classes available at a specific campus or time? 
    • Can I take any of my required classes online? 

An advisor helps you navigate towards your education goal. Whether it is simply taking a single class or earning an associate’s degree, your advisor will partner with you to help you to identify your strengths and skills to create an individualized plan of action to remove any barriers that might come up along the way.
