The Quickest Way to Graduation: #15toFinish


Twelve hours a semester is full-time, but 15 credits a term or 30 per calendar year is “on time” for finishing your degree and progressing toward your transfer, degree and career goals.

How can you get your #15toFinish in 2019? Adding intersession or summer classes are great ways to get ahead. Use DegreeWorks (in the “Graduation” tab in MyCNM) to research your program requirements and meet with you School Advisor, Erin Radcliffe,, to plan your #15toFinish.
