Students who are unable to meet with an academic advisor in person can now do so online, through email, or they can request a phone call according to the CNM webpage.
There are still some things that have to be taken care of in person though according to CNM.
The online chat that is set up for students is available Monday-Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and the last online request is accepted at 4:40 p.m. according to CNM.
To start an online session a student should go to the CNM main website and under the tab Student Resources click on the Academic Advisement tab and then click on Online Chat.
There are a few online advisement tips that CNM recommends: students should pull up their program in the catalog, and log into my CNM before connecting to online chat according to CNM webpage.
Students should note that if there is a long delay in response time like 2 or more minutes than the advisor may need to close the session due to other students who are waiting according to CNM.
Students can also speak with an academic advisor through email and emails will be responded to before the end of the next business day according to CNM.
Students can also request a phone call from an academic advisor by calling (505) 224-4321 and leaving a message for an academic advisor. An advisor should respond to the message before the end of the next business day according to the CNM.
Some things that the advisors can help with include: Career exploration and help when choosing a major, educational plans, graduation requirements, transfer information, advisement holds, course planning, and degree evaluations according to the CNM.
