Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP)

The Higher Learning Commission accredits degree-granting post-secondary educational institutions in the North Central region through the Academic Quality Improvement Program (AQIP).

Through AQIP, CNM demonstrates that it meets the Higher Learning Commission's Criteria for Accreditation while integrating the principles and benefits of continuous improvement into the culture of the College.

 AQIP’s five core processes are a sequence of events that are an integral part of CNM's Reaffirmation of Accreditation.

  • Strategy Forum
  • Action Projects
  • Systems Portfolio
  • Systems Appraisal
  • Reaffirmation of Accreditation

Central New Mexico Community College (CNM) received Reaffirmation of Accreditation through 2023.

AQIP honored CNM as a Vanguard College in April 2008. CNM is one of the original 39 institutions that began the AQIP journey in 2000-2001.
