Tell Us About Your Disability

CNM acknowledges that each person experiences their disability in a unique way and we use an interactive process to ensure that each eligible student receives the reasonable accommodations they require for access to education.  Your responses to the following questions are your opportunity to describe your disability, how it impacts you, and what types of barriers you may experience in your education.  Your responses, including uploaded disability documentation, are submitted to a DRC Academic Coach who will review your request and draft a Student Accommodation Statement (SAS) prior to meeting with you.  Incomplete responses may delay the evaluation of your application and your ability to receive disability-related services.  Please answer each question thoroughly so that your coach can assist you in a timely manner.


Include the name/diagnosis of any disabilities you experience.  "Disability" means a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities.

Examples of impacts to major life activities include but are not limited to: Caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, seeing, hearing, eating, sleeping, walking, standing, sitting, reaching, lifting, bending, speaking, breathing, learning, reading, concentrating, thinking, writing, communicating, interacting with others, and working.
Examples include but are not limited to: navigating campus, taking tests, completing coursework, participating in class, reading texts, using technologies, and taking notes.
Examples of accommodations include, but are not limited to: signed language interpreters, alternative format textbooks, class materials produced in braille, testing accommodations, ergonomic/adaptive furniture.

Please upload documentation related to your disability diagnoses. Some examples of documentation could include IEP/504 plan, diagnostic testing, letters from health care provider, or other information.

If you are unable to upload documentation at this time, please email it to, fax to 505.224.3261, or bring to the Disability Resource Center at CNM's main campus (900 University Blvd SE, SSC 209).

If you do not upload documentation or provide it to the DRC within 2 days, it may delay your ability to receive services or we may reach out to you for more information.
