Students should communicate with the School of Business & Information Technology associate dean or program chairs at (505) 224-3811, as well as with admissions advisors at the college or university where they plan to complete the bachelor’s degree. Courses taken with the credit/no credit option, transfer credits and non-traditional credits that have been accepted by CNM may not be accepted by the transfer institution. Many four-year institutions have minimum grade point average requirements for admission as well as a requirement that all coursework be completed with grades of C or better.
Additional Courses: Contact the School of Business & Information Technology at (505) 224-3811 and transfer institution(s) to determine if additional courses are required or accepted toward specific four-year graduation requirements.
Transfer Information: Student selection of ANTH 1150 and GEOG 1101 for the degree should depend upon articulation/transfer requirements of four-year transfer institution. Since some New Mexico schools classify ANTH 1150 and GEOG 1101 as a physical science, CNM students may use either course to meet the three credit hour biology/physical science requirement. However, CNM’s acceptance of these classes to meet the biology/physical science requirement does not bind the transfer institution to the same classification. Students are cautioned to check with their transfer institution to ensure that the use of those classes to meet that requirement will be accepted by the institution in that category.
UNM: It is recommended that students coordinate their choice of classes with the Anderson School of Management (ASM) pre-admission requirements listed on the ASM website bba.mgt.unm.edu/admissions/requirements.asp. Students should contact the ASM admissions office at (505) 277-3888 one to two semesters prior to their expected start date to begin the application process.
NMHU: Students should contact NMHU in Rio Rancho at (505) 891-2046 one to two semesters prior to their expected start date to begin the application process.
