Welcome to Colorado Mountain College and its eleven campus

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 bachelor’s
and associate degrees, specialized certificates, and 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 29%, making CMC a
federally-designated Hispanic Serving Institution (HSI). CMC
courses are highly personal and many are experiential by design,
each with a maximum registration of 25 students.
Colorado Mountain College campuses are located in Aspen,
Carbondale, Breckenridge, Dillon, Steamboat Springs, downtown
Glenwood Springs, Glenwood Springs-Spring Valley, Leadville, Rifle,
the Vail Valley, and Salida. Of these locations, three are
“traditional” residential—Spring Valley, Leadville, and Steamboat
Springs; students in Breckenridge (and coming soon – in Edwards,
Spring Valley and Steamboat Spring) have access to college-owned
apartment-style 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 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.
Colorado Mountain College is accredited by the Higher Learning
Commission and authorized by the Colorado Commission on Higher
Education. For general information about CMC, its programs,
