Scheduled Course Removals

Distance Learning and ITS routinely remove courses from CNM Learn. Only a year's worth of classes are kept within CNM Learn at any given time. If you would like to access or copy a course from more than a year ago, your course will need to be pulled from our external archive and may take longer to retrieve.
