Welcome to Colorado Mountain College and its eleven campus

economic, social, cultural, and environmental vitality of its
beautiful Rocky Mountain region by welcoming all learners through

CMC is a comprehensive, public, open-access dual-mission
institution offering 136 academic programs ranging from specialized
certificates to associate and bachelor’s degrees, a wide range of
online, non-credit and lifelong learning courses, as well as
extensive concurrent enrollment opportunities in close partnership
with neighboring school districts.
Over 15,000 students attend CMC annually, and 40% of degree-seeking
students earn a certificate or degree every year. The college’s
Latinx enrollment has doubled in six years to 28%, making CMC a
federally designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). CMC
courses are highly personal and many are highly experiential by
design, each with a maximum registration of 25 students.
Colorado Mountain College campuses are located in Aspen,
Carbondale, Breckenridge, Dillon, Steamboat Springs, Glenwood
Springs, Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, Leadville, Rifle, the Vail
Valley, and Salida. Of these locations, three are
residential—Spring Valley, Leadville, and Steamboat Springs — and
students in Breckenridge have access to college-owned off-campus
housing. CMC campuses are close-knit communities, on average
serving between 1,000 – 2,000 students.
The majority of the college’s financial support comes from local
property taxes, not tuition or state revenues. Consequently, CMC is
uniquely positioned to be entrepreneurial, nimble, mission-focused,
and responsive to community and workforce needs. The college’s
Central Services administrative office, which provides
administrative support to all campus locations, is located in
historic downtown Glenwood Springs, the town from which CMC
originally launched in 1965.

Commission and authorized by the Colorado Commission on Higher
