Return and Reapplication to CNM

Learn about how to return to CNM if you've been away only a short while, and what steps to take if you've been away longer.

If you've recently attended CNM, returning is easy. In many cases, you will not be required to reapply and can get back to registering for classes. Please see the information below regarding returning to CNM and what you need to do.

Transfer Students

If you've been away from CNM for some time and took courses at another institution, please see our Transfer page

Determine Whether You Need to Reapply

You don't need to reapply if

  • You've taken 1-2 terms off and have attended CNM within the last year.
  • You recently applied (applications stay valid for three terms), but never attended CNM.

If either of the above apply, you'll be able to register for classes during open registration. Remember to update us with any changes (address, name, residency status, etc.) that might have happened in the time you were away.

You need to reapply if

  • You are absent from CNM for three or more terms.
  • You are changing from a Dual Credit program.
  • You were previously taking non-credit courses.

If you're ready, reapply now. You can also review the enrollment process if you need a refresher.
