Course Delivery Methods

We know you have critical obligations to your family and your job, so we help you build your future around all of it.

Our teaching methods include live, face-to-face classes with day, evening, and Saturday hours. We have intensive 8- and 16-week courses for some of our short-term programs.

If your schedule doesn’t let you get away from work or home for long, try our online, synchronous classes which have a designated meeting time and day. Can’t commit to that? We also have online, asynchronous classes that you can take when you have time, whether that’s at 11 a.m. or 3 o’clock in the morning.

Check with an admissions counselor about our expanded online degree programs, and let’s get you moving toward your future.

Student Services Available

Your first stop at the center will be with a student support specialist. We have both walk-in and appointment times available. Call 505-426-2131 to discuss advisement options.

Professional advisement is available to help you determine the best career options for you.

We will then guide you through the process of admissions, registration, transferring, and getting financial aid. We can also help you decide on a pre-major path.

From start to finish, we are here for you.
