All Students Have to Log in With Different Password Today

Due to a major technology upgrade, all students will have to log in to CNM’s online services with a different password beginning today, Sept. 17.

Jul 17, 2015

At 7 a.m. on Sept. 17, default passwords were reset to the student’s nine-digit Student ID number followed by the student’s six-digit date of birth (i.e. 010190 for Jan. 1, 1990). Starting today, students should log into myCNM with their default password (Student ID number followed by six-digit birth date). After logging in, students will need to change their default password to a new password. The new password will require a minimum of eight characters, including at least one lowercase letter and one number. Learn the step-by-step instructions for changing passwords. Students can also watch this video that shows how to change your CNM password.

If students experience problems logging in or changing passwords, there is a phone number dedicated to this issue: (505) 224-4468. Students can also email the ITS Service Desk at
