Students interested in transferring to SFI should consult an SFI advisor. Students from CNM seeking a baccalaureate degree may also transfer to other institutions. Students should always refer to the catalog of their intended transfer institution for specific admission and curricular requirements. Students should also consult an Academic Coach with CNM Connect Services.
