On-Campus Classes for Fall 2020 Term

While 90 percent of CNM courses will continue to be held in online formats during the Fall Term, about 10 percent of courses will take place on CNM campuses. This will allow CNM to help students continue progressing in programs that require in-person instruction and lead to careers that are essential for our community. Some of the courses on campus will also help students complete their graduation requirements and begin their careers.

Fall Term begins August 31, but registration will remain open for late-start classes beyond August 31.

Classes for Spring 2021 Term

Due to the continuing pandemic and related safety concerns, CNM is planning to offer most courses online for the 2021 Spring Term that begins in January, unless there are significant improvements related to pandemic conditions. The Spring Term Schedule of Classes is scheduled to be available on September 16. Spring Term registration will open on Oct. 16.

Student Support Services

There will be no student support services available at physical CNM locations during the Fall Term to reduce risk. All of our support services will continue to be offered remotely/online.

If you’re among the students taking classes on campus, please leave campus after your class(es) and don’t stay on campus to do homework, study, or mingle with other students or employees. Let’s do our best to keep everybody safe!
